A chimney fan is used to extract smoke and fumes from your home when there is no normal flue system in your fireplace. The fumes can exit out of the rear or side to an outside wall, or through the roof, making it the perfect choice if you have no chimney breast or normal fireplace.
At The London Chimney Sweeps, we specialise in custom-made power flue systems to match any fireplace or stove that you may wish to use. Whether it is an antique fireplace or more modern, contemporary ‘hole in the wall’ fireplace, we can design and manufacture a flue system that’s suitable.
The fan unit helps to maintain a smoke-free, odour-free indoor climate and means that you can choose any style of fireplace or stove and have it installed in a position that suits you. This is because the chimney fan will ensure optimal draft, irrespective of weather conditions and location.
Flue Booster Power Flue fans enable your chimney to work more effectively and to ease the lighting and continued use of solid fuel fires, whilst also stopping smoke from spilling into the room. It also ensures optimal combustion and prevents ash and dust being blown into the room.
The chimney fan is an electrically powered fan unit which can be placed either vertically or horizontally on an outside wall or roof to suit your requirements. It’s operated by a wall switch that would normally be next to the fireplace. Once the fan is switched on it will send a message to a solenoid valve for gas, LPG and oil powered fires and stoves, preventing you from turning your fire or stove on without the fan to remove the dangerous combustion fumes. For solid fuel fires you would need to turn the fan on prior to starting the fire.
