About Heat Powered Wood Stove Fan
The living room, where you have a wood stove, is unbearably hot, but the rest of the downstairs is chilly. If, despite your grand master plan, your new wood stove does not seem able to heat the whole first floor of your house, you should consider getting a heat-powered wood stove fan. Install one of these fans on top of the stove; at no cost at all, it can circulate the heat around the room and push it through the doorway into other rooms. As the stove warms up, the heat rises, thus turning the fan blades. Since the fan does not have a motor, it operates in silence, and it turns off automatically when the stove cools down. Thanks to the wide selection on eBay, you can find a variety of options for a heat-powered wood stove fan. Look for a sleek fan with black or silver finish, or a fan with nickel blades for a warm, colorful look. Sizes vary, but most fans are about 4 inches wide and 7 to 9 inches high. At this size, a heat-powered fan is not obtrusive. Moreover, considering the potential it has for saving money on heating bills, it is not a big investment either.
