Frequently Asked Questions about Chimney Fans
Q. What happens when you have a fire in the fireplace and a power failure occurs?
A. You will most likely experience the same problems you had before the chimney fan was installed.
Q. What if the chimney has a constant down-draft and odor when not in use? A. Run the chimney fan at a low speed.
Q. Does the fan always have to be on when I have a fire in the fireplace?
A. Yes, the motor can only be cooled when the chimney fan is operating. You may, however, run it at a very low speed.
Q. The fireplace spills due to negative pressure in the house. Won’t the chimney fan add to the problem?
A. Any exhaust fan will pull air out. However, proper use of the fan speed control assumes the chimney fan simply simulates the natural draft required for the fireplace to operate. Thus the chimney fan will not exhaust more air than a well-functioning fireplace would have done.
It is important to emphasize that all furnaces, water heaters and other combustion equipment be checked for proper venting before regular use of chimney exhaust fans.
