Chimney Fan Installation To Correct Chimney Draft Problems | Authorized ENERVEX Chimney Fan Dealer
Many homes in the Montgomery County, MD, and Washington DC area have chimney draft problems that cause a smoky fireplace. Without sufficient draft in the chimney, there isn’t enough pressure in the flue when you light the fireplace to push the smoke out the chimney, so it falls back into the fireplace (back puffing). The smoke and carbon monoxide fumes from back puffing also reduce indoor air quality, which can be a health hazard.
Bethesda Chimney sells and installs the complete line of Enervex® chimney exhaust fans, the industry’s premier fan manufacturer. It is the perfect solution for solving your chimney draft problems and increasing energy efficiency at the same time!

How does a chimney fan work?
A chimney fan works just like the exhaust fan above your kitchen stove, except it is installed on the top of your chimney. The chimney fan also has a wiring harness that connects to your home’s 110-volt electrical system. We install a switch with variable speed control next to the fireplace, so you can control the fan's speed to easily adjust the chimney's draft, which regulates how high or low the flames will burn in the fireplace. Bethesda Chimney also works with professional electricians that can install a wireless "Lutron" switch that can work with smart home technology.
Benefits of Installing a Chimney Fan
Installing a chimney fan offers many benefits, including:
- Corrects chimney draft problems
- Burns fuel more efficiently
- Improves heating efficiency
- Less creosote buildup
- Reduces smoke
- A safer, more enjoyable wood-burning experience
- Improves indoor air quality
Reduce Smoke and Fumes
When you turn on these fans and light your fireplace, it will lower the air pressure inside the chimney, sucking the smoke and exhaust from the flue like a vacuum. So now you can relax by the warm and cozy fire without worrying about smoke and fumes ruining the experience or jeopardizing your family's safety.
