Fireplace blower — will it make a difference?

Fireplace blower can make a difference, however it will not be a huge difference. Blowers do not make heat, if they did, all you would need is the blower and forget about any device burning fuel. That being said, the blower can move the heat away from the appliance into the space where the heat can be felt.

That is called convection heat whereas units without blowers can only generate radiant heat. Overall we do recommend blowers for wood and gas heating appliances. One thing to keep in mind is when you install a blower on your fireplace, you will hear the sound of the blower motor plus the sound of air moving. In some cases this may be objectionable. Most blowers we offer also include a method of discontinuing the use of the blower during certain periods.
