A stove fan improves the air circulation

A stove fan ensures that the heat is dispersed evenly throughout the room and that the stove doesn't just heat up the air right around it.

Why should I get a stove fan?

A heat distributor helps to maintain an even and comfortable temperature in the room. Simply place the stove fan on top of your stove and once it’s warm enough, the stove fan will circulate the hot air from the stove throughout the room.

Benefits of a stove fan:

  • Helps circulate warm air
  • Cost saving (you’ll use less firewood)
  • Better airflow
  • Increased comfort
  • Requires no power

How do they work?

Stove fans do not use batteries or cables, but generate its own electricity by converting heat into electricity using the thermoelectric effect. When the surface temperature of the stove’s top plate reaches approximately 65°C or more, a heat-sensitive spring will slowly activate the mill and the airflow will increase as the surface temperature rises.

For the stove fan to work optimally, it must be placed on a heat source, such as the stove surface, while it is cold. When the stove heats up, the mill will collect the air and distribute it evenly throughout the room, instead of the air only rising towards the ceiling.

In this way, a stove fan helps to improve the performance of your stove. You’ll also use less firewood, as you’ll feel less need to replenish your firewood in a warm room.
