While a small area receives enough heat most of your houses area does not receive any of that heat.

That's where a fireplace blower comes in handy. Fireplace blowers that can fit your Superior fireplace are widely available and can pay for themselves in energy savings in a matter of months.A brick hearth blower, also referred to as a fireplace fan, works by pushing all the warmth from your fire out into your living area. Installation is a snap too, you only need to take a couple easy notes to get started. Lets take a look at how to get ready to install your new Superior fireplace blower.
How a Blower Saves You Money
A fireplace blower helps to maximize the useful of your fireplace by driving the heat it creates out into the room it is found in. A fanless fireplace only feels warm in the small area around it while most of the heat travels up the chimney. A fireplace blower cures this by pushing all of this lost heat out into your house. Once this useful heat is pushed out into your room it will then work its way all over all over the house, giving you an easy source of winter heat. Save tons on your heating bill by simply adding a fan to your fireplace!
The blower will fit any standard 110 volt outlet that is near your fireplace and does not use much power to work. The blower even has a sensor for when to shut itself off so it will not run up your electricity bill either.
Picking the Right Superior Blower
Find Your Nearest Power Outlet
The first choice in choosing your new Superior fireplace fan depends on where you have a power outlet located. Figure out whether your power outlet is on the left or right side of the fireplace and then measure from the electrical outlet to the fireplace. If your power source 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 fireplace heater so the electrical cord will not get in the way of your fire.
Measuring the Size of Your fireplace Interior
The next step is to measure the size of your fireplace interior. This will help you pick a hearth blower 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 fireplace interior to the back to get the depth. Picking a properly sized fireplace blower will make sure that you get the most for your money and if you have a set of Superior fireplace doors the fireplace fan will fit snugly behind them.
Benefits of the Superior Fireplace Blower

The blower automatically comes on when your fireplace reaches 110 degrees, pushing all that inexpensive 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.
