Not a bad fan
This fan installed easily but with one exception. It needs to be installed before the gas line is installed. I did not see that helpful advice in the manual. I looked ahead and saw the limit of space before I installed the gas line. The fan is nice and quiet and the variable speed is great.
ProsQuietness ease of install Variable speed
ConsInstall before gas line

Does not work with the fireplace
The professional installers said the blower did not mount to gas log unit per instructions and it did not have the heat sensitive switch in a location that most blowers do. They had to figure out another way to install the blower. It makes a metal rattling noise when it is on. I thought it might be ok on low but after being on for awhile it started rattling on it own. If it wasn't a big problem to take it off (taking everything apart) I would return it. This was the blower recommended as an accessory for the fireplace I ordered. As beautiful as the fireplace it I sure wasted money on this item. The fireplace heats so nicely on it own it really wasn't needed.
ConsLoud rattles when it is on.

Installation wasn't bad, despite gas line already having been hooked up (our builder had the fireplace in and never added a blower). Only negative is the fan is a bit noisey at 3/4 to full power, has a vibration. I checked that it was secure to verify it was not due to placement but actually the fan itself as well. At least now I actually can utilize the heat from my fireplace! and the heat switch works great!

Didn't originally buy blower with the unit, so I ordered it after the fire place was installed. received the blower 3 days after I ordered it, with the magnetic anchors it took about 10 minutes to install. It's quiet and works great
