The Type C Draft Inducer is available in four sizes: 6", 8", 10", and 13", and is designed to provide years of trouble-free operation. It is insulated to withstand peak temperatures up to 1300o F and operates continually at 900 degrees Fahrenheit without overheating the motor windings or bearings. It can operate with a standard manual on-off switch, or can be installed with the Field Controls variable speed motor control.
A considerable amount of air is necessary to allow for good chimney draft. In many tightly constructed homes, this air is not readily available. The addition of a Type C Draft Inducer will compensate for lack of air by supplementing the chimney’s natural draft.
A chimney, especially on an outside wall, may be so cold prior to starting a fire that no draft exists. A Type C Draft Inducer switched on before starting the fire will provide draft until the chimney has become hot enough to generate a natural draft.
Occasional smoking may be the result of several factors including downdraft caused by adjacent buildings, terrain or trees. Remodeling, new additions, or the addition of an exhaust fan can change air flows and result in poor draft. Or a fireplace design inadequacy, such as an undersized flue, may prevent adequate draft.
