Heat Distribution Options
Note: The heat distribution options are not available for every fireplace model. Please read the description of each option to know on which fireplace the option can be installed.
Gravity Vent Kit
All fireplace models can be installed with an optional Gravity Vent Kit. This kit allows you to duct the heat from the fireplace to a room above or on the same level as the fireplace. Gravity vent kits are required on clean face models.
Heat Dump Kit
This option is available on the Topaz, Chameleon, Opel and Onyx fireplaces. The Heat Dump Kit uses a small fan to direct a moderate amount of warm air from the fireplace to another room. It is most often used to provide supplemental heating to a basement room when the fireplace is on the main floor.
Clean Facing Kit
Only the Opel, Delta and Chameleon fireplaces can be installed with a clean face. The Clean Facing Kit consists of an intake grill and boot, a five foot length of flexible aluminum duct and a sleeve to connect the duct to the fireplace. It is required on all clean face installations.
Wall Mounted Electric Thermostat
This option is available for the Opel, Onyx and Delta. RSF’s unique bi-metallic air control can be combined with a White Rogers® wall-mounted thermostat to automatically regulate heat output. The thermostat adjusts the airflow into the fireplace to maintain the desired temperature in your room – just like a furnace. No need to fiddle with your stove, simply set it and forget it.
The Opel, Onyx, Delta, Topaz and Chameleon fireplaces may be equipped with an optional Internal Blower. The Internal Blower will improve the airflow around the firebox and out the top grills. Kit includes variable speed control and a thermodisc temperature switch. The kit for the Topaz and Chameleon does not include the thermodisc temperature switch. N/A on clean face models.
Central Heating Blower
The Opel, Onyx and Delta fireplaces may be equipped with an optional 635 cfm external blower. This blower can be used to circulate the heat from the fireplace in any direction and must be used if you wish the heat to be distributed to a lower level than the fireplace. Kit includes two noise reduction collars, variable speed control, a mounting bracket and a back draft damper. Option FO-FDHB6-1.
The Inline Fan can be installed behind the intake grill of the Clean Facing Kit to provide increased air circulation.
