Preway Fireplace Blower

Updated on July 5, 2011

Preway Fireplace Blowers

A fireplace blower is a great way to instantly cut your energy bills. The huge downfall with wood burning hearths is that they heat your house unevenly. While a small area gets warmed up most of your home does not receive any of that heat. This is a horrible mistake because your winter heating bills could be heavily reduced if only you could harness all this extra energy.

That's where a fireplace blower comes in handy. Fireplace blowers that can fit your Preway fireplace are easy to come by and can pay for themselves in energy savings in a matter of months.A fireplace blower, also referred to as a hearth heater, works by pushing all the energy from your fire out into your home. Installation is a snap too, you only need to take a few easy notes to get started. Lets take a look at how to get ready to install your new Preway fireplace blower.

How Fireplace Fans Work

The blower will fit any typical 110 volt outlet that is near your fireplace and does not use much power to operate. The blower even even has a thermometer when to switch itself off so it will not run up your power bill either.

A fireplace blower works to maximize the effectiveness of your existing fireplace by blowing the heat it makes out into the room. A traditional fireplace only produces heat in the small area around it while most of the warmth travels up the chimney. A fireplace blower solves this problem by blowing all of this lost heat out into your room. Once this heat is pushed out into your living room it will then work its way all over all over the house, providing you an extremely cheap source of winter heat. Imagine the savings if you could slash your heating bill in half!

Picking out the Right Hearth Blower

Find Your Nearest Power Outlet
The first decision in choosing your new Preway hearth blower depends on where you have an electrical outlet located. Figure out whether your electrical outlet is on the left or right side of the fireplace and then measure from the electrical outlet to the fireplace. If your power outlet is located on the right side of your fireplace you will need a "right handed model." Otherwise you will need to get a "left handed model." This refers to where the motor is located on your hearth blower so the electrical cord will not get in the way of your fire.

Measuring the Size of Your brick fireplace Interior
The next step is to measure the size of your brick fireplace interior. This will help you pick a fireplace fan that will fit properly in your fireplace. Measure across the width of the front of the fireplace opening and then measure from the front of the brick hearth interior to the back to get the depth. Picking a properly sized fireplace heater will make sure that you get the most for your money and if you have a set of Preway fireplace doors the hearth blower will fit snugly behind them.

Benefits of the Preway Fireplace Blower
One of the best features of a Preway fireplace blower is its ability to shut itself on and off automatically without fumbling with any switches. The blower automatically comes on when your fireplace reaches 110 degrees, pushing all that free heat into your home. When the fireplace cools down below 90 degrees the blower shuts off by itself, keeping you from having to shut it off yourself.
