Frequently Asked Questions
The following are some of the most popular questions we are asked about the ENERVEX Chimney Fans. If your question isn’t answered here, call us at 800-255-2923.
Even though the fans offer a very compact and low profile, some customers wish to hide it from the view below. The fan may be recessed or hidden, for example, with chimney pots, copper caps and cupolas from companies like European Copper and ChimneyKing, as long as the fan is allowed to vent properly. You can read and see pictures from such installations here. Call our customer support group about your specific application.
Any exhaust fan (i.e. bathroom fans, kitchen hood, clothes dryer, etc.) will pull air out of the house. However, proper use of the fan speed control assures 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.
You are likely to experience the same problems you had before the chimney fan was installed. The fan offers no more resistance than a chimney cap. Since other fans in your house – that may have aggravated your fireplace problem – are not functioning either, your fireplace may work fine without the use of the fan.
Yes. If you run the fan continuously at a low setting, you will be able to reverse the down-draft and/or to eliminate odors from the flue. This will not affect the longevity of the fan and – since the fan uses very little power – it will use very little energy.
