HPBE Fires Up Talk About Custom Venting Designs

If you didn’t get an opportunity to attend the Hearth, Patio & Barbeque Expo (HPBE) in Nashville, you missed some cool stuff. The buzz in our booth was all about custom venting designs – in particular, how to get chimney fan sizing right in older or unusual applications.

Unique venting challenges such as direct-vent, sidewall-mount and true inline fans for air-cooled chimneys were hot topics, sparking conversations about the breadth and flexibility of our custom designs. Three vendors had our chimney fans on display in their booth:
