Less Noisy Vent Fan for Buderus G124X-32???

Dear Heating Helper Friends,

I own a Buderus G124X-32/5II propane-fired boiler (132k btu) that heats an Ergomax E-65 indirect hot water heater for both DHW and hydronic radiant floor heating. The Buderus has just backed up an outdoor wood-fired boiler for years, but now that I'm getting to be an old man I'd like to stop cutting/loading wood and switch to propane full-time for both DHW and space heating.

The Buderus is located in the basement directly under my bedroom and I find the noise from the exhaust vent fan to be excessive -- especially on start-up. The Buderus was installed in 2000 and has a fan made by Jakel Industries Model #117784-01. The fan feeds exhaust horizontally into a 3" stainless pipe that turns vertical for about 4' before exiting horizontally out the concrete basement wall.

I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a manufacturer known for making extremely quiet exhaust fans for boilers that may make one that could replace the Jakel on my Buderus?

Thanks very much.

    Bob, did you ever get a answer. I have the same blower and am looking for a replacement.

    All you need is the part number . Buy the complete unit rather then just the motor.
