Forced Air Distribution Kit
Manage the heat distribution automatically using a wall thermostat. Select the temperature you want to maintain in the room where the fireplace is located. Once the thermostat is satisfied, the excess heat is redirected to another room up to 50 feet (15 m) away from the fireplace using a 350 CFM blower. This allows you to enjoy the fire in your living room without the discomfort of excess heat generated by your Ventis fireplace. The system can also be used to supplement heat in a room remote from the fireplace. For this type of application, the thermostat needs to be positioned in the desired room and programmed with the temperature to be maintained. The system, now in “heat mode”, will activate the blower as long as the temperature in the remote room is not achieved and as long as the fireplace has enough heat to distribute.
Hot Air Gravity Distribution Kit
Another way to distribute excess heat into your home is with a Hot Air Gravity Distribution Kit. The Hot Air Gravity Distribution Kit allows you to block the upper fireplace louver in order to bring hot air into the same room as the fireplace, in adjacent rooms, or upstairs at a maximum distance of 10′ (3 m). The minimum height of the hot air duct must be 68″ (1.7 m) measured from the floor to the top of the hot air register.
