Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AZSue Blower is essential for efficient heating
Blower is great for increased efficiency of vent free gas fireplace. However, you need to be prepared for a frustrating install process and slight adjustments to the blower unit.
The installation instructions are very vague. They do not provide adequate reference to the various fireplace models that are referred to as "compatible" or "for use with"; specifically, accessing the top inside panel of the ProCom29 in. Vent-Free Dual Fuel Firebox Insert. We removed more screws than necessary on the fireplace insert to access the top.
After completing the installation, the blower made an unusual (and annoying) whistling noise. My husband had to tweak the blower a bit to eliminate the whistle. Now all is well with the unit and it works very efficiently. This is typical of Chinese made products; manufacturer should consider relocating manufacturing to USA and improve quality control of product and adequate installation instructions.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by firebug No frills, but does the job
The blower works well at moving the hot air out of the firebox. No, it's not the quietest blower, but average in noise level. This is not a top-end blower, but it wasn't a top-end price either.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 1965 Not worth money.
This product was a disappointment, not worth money or trouble. Don't move much air, and it makes way too much noise, has tinny sound.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by srmwood could be better!
Cheap construction, plastic used instead of bearings. Very disappointed! $99.00 should buy a better product.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Greg $100??? Really??
I installed this blower only to find that it made a horrible whine. Called customer service and they suggested I take the shroud off it. I did and the noise went away. This appears to be a known problem. This is a really cheap fan and not worthy of the price they charge. But it does circulate heat out from the fireplace.
