Which size and type of chimney fan should I use?
Exodraft has an easy calculation method which works in a majority of cases for chimney fans on solid fuel only, using the table below:
* If the chimney opening is larger than the chimney fan base plate, you can adapt it by means of a flange or choose a larger chimney fan.
**Area of opening
A. One-sided fireplace: Area = a x h (m2)
B. Corner installation: Area = 0.8 x (a + b) x h (m2)
Chimney height: 2-8 m
Elbows: Max 2 x 90° bends
No other ventilation/exhaustion
Support for more complex projects
If you want to get more technical than this, our team are happy to help – they love a challenge. During this process we use design software developed by exodraft. This enables us to design complete systems accurately and efficiently, whilst providing engineers with design reports.
All calculations and system recommendations provided by exodraft are carried out in accordance with the relevant standards and regulations. All designs are stored electronically so that our engineers and technicians have a permanent access to project information.
