originally i was looking for a sterling (heat engine) powered fan, more as an interesting item than for any benefit but unfortunately we haven't got enough room above our stove so i was left considering an electric unit. given i wasn't very optimistic that a fan this size would produce a noticeable effect i decided to go for this item from round wood trading over other apparently identical products being sold by other retailers for higher prices, purely because i wouldn't be wasting so much money.
well i was wrong !!!
firstly i was pleased to find that if anything the stated minimum operating temp of 68 C is slightly pessimistic, it's only a matter of minutes after lighting the stove, when it's still just warm to the touch, that the unit starts to function.
secondly, despite producing what appears to be a low volume of slow moving air, this fan certainly spreads the heat, when you enter the room from the corner furthest from the stove, the temperature is sufficiently higher than before for visitors, unaware of the fan, to comment how warm the room is as oon as they enter. I've experimented by leaving the door from the room to the hall and stairs open and the rest of the house is also showing an increase in temperature compared to before when we relied on natural convection and air movements to spread the heat.
so far i can't comment on if we're using less wood, but we are enjoying a warmer room and a house that's warmer before any other heating's switched on.
i'd recommend it for anyone, especially if like us your stove is sited in an old fireplace and has a pocket of hot air formed around it
Astonishingly, this silent and very gentle device manages to distribute warmth to places it had never been before, without creating a perceptible current of air. In addition, we're able to burn the stove much more economically while maintaining a comfortable temperature in the whole of the room. If it all gets a bit too hot, removing the fan cools things down within a few minutes.
If all this seems too good to be true for a relatively cheap item, it did to us, too. It's a pleasure to be able to unreservedly recommend such a simple but effective solution.
The irritating thing is it's intermittent and doesn't always happen, but it's such a distraction that it's now unuseable.
Be warned, the manufacturer for this (Round Wood Trading) is neither helpful nor interested in even looking at the problem, and they hide behind the "warranty" card, which is appalling as I don't believe this product should fail after 4 months of use. This is the poorest investment ever if it costs over £10 per month to use, as this is what it's worked out for me.

Great product it makes a real difference to the heat distribution of a woodburner. Performs as well as a much more expensive one in a friend's house. Read morePublished 4 months ago by I. Reddek
