Not only does it keep me warmer in my home, but oil prices are on the way back up again. The economy is still tight, and every dollar saved adds up during times like these. I can lower the heat in my house and I'll save money on my heating bill as a result. Between the extra warmth and a few dollars saved, I have every reason to recommend looking into fireplace blowers.
You should make sure that you have a power source close by your fireplace in order to plug in any fireplace blowers you decide to run. Usually, you can expect a blower to require one hundred and ten volts of power. You may need to have an electrical outlet installed so you do not end up with an extension cord running across the floor.
