Fireplace blowers help to heat your home by forcing the warm air from the fireplace around the room. This should help many people keep their heating costs down during the cold months. There are different styles of blowers available. Some are designed to be attached to your fireplace, while others are meant to sit in a doorway and blow the warm air throughout the home.
Winter is just around the corner and the weather is beginning to grow a little colder with each week. It's almost time to get the fireplace going again, and a fireplace blower would be a great addition to your house this season. I don't know about you, but I always find myself as close to the fireplace as possible during those cold winter days. My fireplace is in the den of my house, and if I'm on the other side of the room, I simply won't feel the warmth of the burning fire.
Aside from keeping the warm air from escaping, the doors act to keep the hearth clean just as a fireplace screen used to do in the olden days. With the doors closed, ashes and embers don't scatter about the room, keeping the carpet or rug clean and scorch-free. The doors also have built in devices that divert air towards the bottom of the fireplace. These vents make the fire burn brighter and easier to light.
Wood fuels produce more and exceptional heat. They run on the radiant heat principle so they heat rooms a bit more proficiently and rapidly compared to heat produced via vent systems. Wood stoves produce heat that radiates through both tops and all sides of the unit hence sending warm to all directions in the target rooms.
