Mischief Monday - The Blower

We are very fortunate to have a wonderful beautiful and huge fireplace to help heat the house in the winter. This year, after a series of snags, we were finally able to have a blower installed. For those of you who don't know about fireplace blowers (I didn't until recently), it sucks cold air in, heats it above the fire and blows it out. The other day in about an hour and a half of running it, it raised the temperature in the house 3 degrees. It sounds like a loud fan when it is on.

Here is how the dogs feel about it:
Hailey: "I hate it. Turning it on ruins my life."
Zaphod: "It is scary please turn it off. I would rather be cold."

Yep, turning it on causes mischief according to the dogs!

  1. OMD what a noisy blower? We are sure you'll get use to it Lee and Phod. Soon you won't even notice it is there. Have a marvellous Monday and stay warm and cosy.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. a giant vacula..,,,,,but being warm is so much nicer

  3. With the cold temps we've have this winter, you need all the warmth you can get!

  4. Oh, I don't think I would like a noisy blower either. Such a shame that it heats up the house so well but makes such noise.
    Happy Monday,

  5. We don't have a fireplace so I don't know if wesa would like a blower or not, probably not cos noise tends to make us crazy and we start fights, BUT we would like the heat!!

  6. I read the first sentence loud to my staff, because our fireplace is still unfinished LOL. But such a blower is a little scary, I agree with Hailey and Zaphod. Have a warm and comfy monday

  7. Hey LEE.... THAT is exactly how WE use OUR Beds... We think it is sorta Artsy FARTSY...

    OMD SOOOOOO sorry that the Blower thingy is so Scary... Maybe you need a MUFFLER fur it... Like stuff the fan full of FURS sorta Muffler...

  8. Blowers can be scary, we have one on our pellet stove that's very loud, I don't even like it!

  9. If it sounds anything like the hair dryer when it's blowing, I hates it too.

    Aroo to you,

  10. You've got such a nice fireplace. I didn't know about blowers until now!

  11. We're used to fans and stuff because it's HOT here. Guys, you just need to get used to those blowers. SHE says there's nothin' quite like just staring into flames to relax you. We wouldn't know, we've never been near fire.
