Our UZY5 blower kit is a dual blower powerhouse for your compatible BIS, Lennox, Security or Superior wood fireplace. Features our 100% ball bearing blower motor assemblies and comes entirely...
The original FAK-1500 and FAK-3000 forced air blower kits were discontinued by Lennox and Superior several years ago and no direct replacement was offered by IHP following their discontinuation. The original kits were a cartridge style axial fan kit that worked unconventionally compared to most standard gas and wood fireplace blowers, which usually mount in the rear of the fireplace and force air up and over the firebox. The original kits forced air towards the floor and opened a small flapper on the end of the fan cartridge housing, which forced air back out the lower louvered panel. Most of these older boxes don't have a proper flue / vent to allow a blower to push air upwards, so we've made a new fan kit that works similar to the way the original fan work. Rather than install a blower at the back wall, you'll place this blower in the same center opening and magnetically attach the blower so that it's facing back out towards your living space. The blower will help draw down heated air through a series of ports or openings in the firebox and help push or force some of that heated air out the bottom louvered panel.
The kit includes a 100% ball bearing blower w/ powerful neodynium magnets, noise reduction padding, power cord and wiring harness. Also included is a wall mounted speed controller package that will replace your existing wall switch. The rheostat provides seemless control of the blower's speed, as well as a way to turn the blower on and off from the convenience of your wall switch.
So if you have an older Lennox or Superior fireplace that used one of the FAK forced air kit variants, please contact us directly at 262-989-4882 with any questions on installation or fitment.
