Is a Heatilator model BF36A wood-burning fireplace compatible with an aftermarket blower? This is a 1985 fireplace. I called Heatilator, and they said they no longer manufacture a blower for this model.
Also, is it safe to use a fireback in this fireplace? I have no doors installed.
Finally, how efficient is a blower in circulating heat from a wood fire? This fireplace is located in a large room with cathedral ceilings and a ceiling fan.
Thanks for advice and suggestions.
