i service a place that has negative air fireplace is gas its down drafting can anyone tell me where i can get a fan inducer that monts on the top of the b- vent on the roof to induce draft called lennox yesterday tech dept dont know nothing only said companys make them dont know who any ideas model # and serial# are closed in by marbel thanks
Google b-vent draft inducers.
Please forgive me if I sound ignorant, but wouldn't the proper way to resolve this problem be to solve the negative air issue?
Yeah, but isn't it more fun to suck even more air out of the building with a draft fan? Then when people open the front door it sucks them right in.

Suck-O-Matic on B-vent
It's even more fun when the front door opens outwards such as in commercial buildings. Put that exhaust fan on then watch they try to pry the front door open.
Seriously, Rob is correct--fix the house and the fireplace will work. In order to install such a fan, it would have to be tested and listed for use with that particular Fp. Generic exhausts are Not approved by code.
vtp99 thanks for the info found what i was looking thanks again
might want to check out the water heater also, if its gas!
