A wood-burning stove helps to cut your reliance on central heating and may cut your heating costs as a result.
But it’s possible to make even greater savings on your energy bills with the help of a stove fan.
This fantastic gadget takes the heat that your stove is already generating and circulates it so that more of your home feels the benefit of the warmth.
Not only does a stove fan improve heat circulation by encouraging it to spread outwards rather than immediately rise, it will also increase fuel efficiency (with savings of up to 14%, according to research by a Canadian university). That’s because the air around the stove heats faster and stays warm, which helps the convection process.
In short, your room heats more easily and quickly. That, in turn, will help the warmth spread to surrounding rooms.
No batteries or mains power
The stove fan featured above – the Ecofan 810 – costs nothing to operate. It generates its own electricity, which means you don’t need any batteries or mains power to operate it. The heat your woodburner is already creating is sufficient to power it.
It starts automatically, speeding up as the stove temperature rises and automatically shutting off once the appliance cools.
