We will go over every
possible solution before we recommend an RS chimney fan. In some cases the fan
is just the less expensive choice. Can you imagine going through the
expense of lining, insulating or extending the chimney and finding the same
problems. Or the many different types of “downdraft” caps and adaptors with
vacustacks and turbines all have their selected “specific” application as a
possible downdraft cap to help solve a draft or smoke problem. It is

What happens when you have a
fire in the fireplace and a power failure occurs?
You will most likely experience the same
problems you had before the chimney fan was installed.
What if the chimney has a
constant down-draft and odor when not in use?
Run the chimney fan at a low speed.
Does the fan always have to be
on when I have a fire in the fireplace?
Yes, the motor can only be cooled when the
chimney fan is operating. You may, however, run it at a very low speed.
The fireplace spills due to
negative pressure in the house. Won’t the chimney fan add to the problem?
Any exhaust fan will pull air out. 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.
*It is important to
emphasize that all furnaces, water heaters and other combustion equipment be
checked for proper venting before regular use of a chimney fan.
Can the fan be recessed or
Yes, the fan may be recessed or hidden, for
example, with chimney pots, copper caps, or cupolas*
as long as the fan is allowed to vent properly.
Does the chimney fan have to
be removed every time I have my chimney cleaned?
No, the fan has hinges on which it can be
tilted open for easy access of the chimney.
Does the fan require its own
No, the fan only draws about 1 to 4 amps,
depending on the size, and runs on 110 volts, which is standard in most homes.
Can you run the wire inside
No. However, you may run it inside a chase.
Otherwise it will have to be run on the outside of the chimney.
What kind of guarantee do I
have that I will be satisfied with the fan?

Definition of Mechanical Venting
While used for decades in Europe, mechanical venting of
fireplaces and stoves is relatively new in USA. Building codes, ANSI and NFPA
standards hardly mention "mechanical venting". And, when mechanical venting is
mentioned it is referred to as "draft inducing", which leads to "draft inducing
"Draft inducer" has become trade name for a paddlewheel fan that
is inserted into the flue between the appliance outlet and the chimney
termination. There is still a misconception about mechanical venting. Many
professionals still don't understand the difference between draft inducers and
These are our definitions that should explain the major
Draft Inducer: "A fan or ventilator that is installed
between the appliance outlet and the chimney termination. The draft inducer
creates a negative pressure on the inlet side and a positive pressure on the
Chimney Fan: "A fan or ventilator that is installed at the
chimney termination. The chimney fan creates a negative pressure in the entire
chimney system". Obviously, by pressurizing the flue the draft inducer can not
be used in any stack or chimney flue that is exposed to living quarters. Using
an in-line draft inducer almost always creates problems with warranties provided
by stack and chimney manufacturers, and if the chimney system is listed the
installation of a draft inducer will definitely void the listing. Further, the
draft inducer is neither made nor designed for use in a dirty environment with
On the other hand, a chimney fan can be used on any type stack
or chimney flue because it does not pressurize anything.
