Stove Fan That Runs Without Electricity


Here is the perfect accessory for anyone that picked up a pellet stove (be it the US or European version) this winter: a fan to help circulate heat that works without electricity. Just set it on top of the stove, and a heat-activated motor goes to work when it gets hot enough, fanning the stove's hot air around the room. This makes the stove more efficient, so you'll use less fuel for it, too. According to the manufacturer's website, the small fan moves about 100 cubic feet per minute (CFM), while the big guy moves about 150 CFM, though the speed of the fan varies with stove temperature; the hotter the stove, the faster it goes. Prices range from $139 to $179 US, depending on the size. ::Garrett Wade via ::Apartment Therapy
