I have a conventional fireplace in my living room that I rarely use because it doesn't seem to generate enough heat. It is an old gas log type (probably 25 years old) that came with our house when we bought it. The chimney has a flue that I always open when I use the gas fireplace for safety reasons.
I can almost feel the heat being sucked out of the house when I stand next to the fireplace. Is there some type of hollow loop with a blower fan that I can put the gas logs on to generate heat?

There is a product known as a grate heater which is designed to take the place of your factory gas log grate. An example of this product is the Stoll 20" W x 17" D Grate Heater for Vented Gas Logs - GLH2017
. This item has a built-in heat exchanger that pulls heat from the grate assembly and forces air into the room.
Another alternative you may consider would be a set of ventless logs, which can be operated with the damper closed and are very efficient when compared to vented sets.

I have a new Cedar Ridge 32000 BTU Gas Vent Free fireplace. I want a new blower because the one that goes on this one is problematic. What can i use? The opening is 4.5 x 15"

I have a 36 direct vent ( 8" pipe ) propane insert. I would like to add a blower but cant determine the make of the insert. Is there a universal blower with remote I can use?

Answer:We do not offer any universal blowers. However, if you reply with the manufacturer and model information of your direct vent fireplace, we can check availability of a blower for your unit.
