Chimney Fans Are an Easy Fix for Smokey Fireplaces

Are you afraid to light your fireplace because you hate the smoke that fills the room? Well, we have a product that will definitely make your hearth experience more enjoyable.
There are many reasons why your chimney and fireplace might be creating smoke in your home. I have listed many of the common ones in our FAQ section, but most of the time the problems are caused by your fireplace's flue.  The flue ensures that the smoke vents correctly running from the top of your woodstove or fireplace opening through the chimney to then to the exterior of your home.  Every fireplace or wood stove needs sufficient draft I order to vent correctly.
If the chimney is blocked because of a bird or animal’s nest or branches, creosote buildup, or other type of blockage, it will be need to be cleaned. If you have any large trees, plants, shrubs that have grown too close to your chimney over the years, they might be causing the problem and you might only have to trim or remove them.
In more extreme cases of poor smoke ventilation a chimney fan will be needed and we recommend that an ENERVEX chimney fan be installed. There are many other reliable brands that work fine but we like to stick to the brand that we know works in all situations.  Enervex is a global company that specializes in demand-controlled mechanical draft and exhaust systems and focuses on creating innovative and environmental friendly fans, controls and accessories.
The advantage of Enervex chimney fans is that they are especially designed to work with all types of wood stoves and fireplaces, pulling smoke and odor from the room so that you can enjoy your fireplace. The fan is installed on top of the chimney, out of plain sight. They have variable speed features, in order to provide the right amount of draft when it's needed. And when the weather warms up and you don’t use your fireplace as much, the fan acts as a ventilator, controlling the dust and debris that accumulates in your fireplace.
The Enervex RS Chimney and Fireplace Fan are extremely quiet, reliable, easy to use and practically maintenance free. It comes in four sizes and is perfect for wood or gas fireplaces as well as coal and oil fueled appliances. And with a two year factory warranty and 10 year corrosion perforation warranty and a 6 month you’re covered and can return your unit if you have any problems.
So don’t let a little smoke prevent you from starting your fireplace and/or chimney this winter. With gas and oil prices getting out of control, you can save a lot of money heating because fireplaces and wood stoves heat only the areas used most often in the home, which in most cases is less than 40 percent.
