Customer Questions & Answers
By Aime from Penrose, CO on January 6, 2014
We have one with 3 blades that is probably 15+ years old, and now needs to be started manually with a little push. Can we get another one with 3 blades?

By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 7, 2014

Answer:
Because of improvements made in design of the blades and to further cut down on noise produced, the manufacturer has revised all of their fan designs to a two bladed style.

By Joanne from Doylestown, PA on September 25, 2014
I have a wood stove insert. Would I still see some benefit if I were to purchase one of these?
By eFireplaceStore on September 25, 2014

Answer:
Likely yes, but I encourage you to use an infrared or magnetic thermometer to determine the average temperate of the shelf the fan will be set upon to determine that temperatures are high enough. This fan operates best when surface temperatures are consistently at 225 degrees and above.

By Barbara from Santa Rosa, California on January 19, 2013
Are these Ecofan AirMax 812 stove top fans efficient for use on propane gas heaters with open grate tops and non-opening glass front doors in a 24 ft. x 24 ft. room with a 19-foot high open beam ceiling?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 21, 2013

Answer:
The 812 AirMax is an excellent choice for use with a propane stove, as it will begin to circulate air at a relatively low temperature, unlike other models. Your room size will not be an issue for circulation, but the high ceilings will have an effect on amount of available heat. The fan will assist in circulating the air further into the space, but a good deal of heat will ultimately be lost to the ceiling. If you have ceiling fans in the room, I would definitely recommend their use to force some heat back downwards.

By Steve from NJ on November 7, 2013
I just bought this fan and think it works great. Would a second fan help even more or is that going to be too much? I have a Vermont castings extra large dutch oven.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 7, 2013

Answer:
Because of their ability to work in tandem with no ill effect, it is certainly possible to use more than one fan upon your stove. Some very large stoves can even use 3 fans, but 2 would likely be the best number for your model.

By Sarah from Hampden, MA on November 4, 2014
Can this fan sit on top of a wood burning stove and withstand a stove top temperature of 300+ degrees?

By eFireplaceStore on November 5, 2014

Answer:
It can indeed. The fan is designed to handle surface temperatures of up to 650 degrees without a problem.

By Carrie from Massachusetts on January 7, 2014
Our stove is set into the fire place. It is not an insert and there is clearance on the top and around the sides. I was told that I would not get enough cool air to circulate around the back and would burn out the fan. Is thus true?

By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 7, 2014

Answer:
The Ecofans often do suffer in these types of installations. Not only will the fan motor be prone to overheating, but the fan will also not work well otherwise. The fan depends on a significant temperature difference between the upper and lower parts of the fan. The temperature difference is what energizes the thermal generator which powers the motor. A confined space tends to heat the upper section to nearly the same temperatures as the lower part, leading the fan to spin very slowly or not at all.

By Ken from Delavan, WI on October 4, 2014
Is there a warranty on this particular fan?
By eFireplaceStore on October 6, 2014

Answer:
There is a 1 year limited warranty on this product against defects in workmanship or faulty parts.

By Sharon Dean from Watertown, NY on November 6, 2012
Could you give me the exact width of the base?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on November 6, 2012

Answer:
This fan's base measures 4.75" wide and 3.25" deep. The entire fan is 9.75" tall and the blade diameter is approximately 9".

By Roy from Las Vegas, NM on January 7, 2014
What makes this particular fan your best seller?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 7, 2014

Answer:
The high amount of air movement offered by the fan, coupled with the longevity of the product and its almost nonexistent operating costs, make this item one of our most popular stove accessories.

By Sandy from Fiddletown,CA on January 11, 2013
In the cold months I don't usually let my fire go out. Is this fan good for continual use? And what is the life of this fan?

By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on January 14, 2013

Answer:
These fans are ideal for continuous use. They are built to run all winter long. The manufacturer offers a one year warranty. However, this fan should provide you with service far beyond the expiration of this warranty.

By Gary from Pocono Lake, PA on January 31, 2014
I have a Gilbraltor wood/coal free standing stove that I mostly burn coal in. Will this fan work with a coal stove?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 3, 2014

Answer:
As long as the top of the stove does not exceed the 650 degree maximum that is listed for this model, the fan can most certainly be used. Regularly exceeding the 650 degree limit can damage the thermal generator used with the fan.

By Frank from Akron, OH on July 13, 2015
I have a fan that I used with my Vermont Castings Vigilant stove for years. I am switching to a gas Vermont Castings stove where the top should still get rather hot. I see that you have a different model of Caframo Ecofan AirMax fans for gas stoves. What is the likelihood that my existing fan will continue to operate?
By Will M. on July 14, 2015

Answer:
The 812 will likely still work as the operating range of 150-650 degrees will allow the fan to start rotating and pushing air, however, it will push far less air than the Caframo Ecofan CA 806 Heat Powered Fan as the gas fan seems to achieve maximum velocity within 50 above its 150 degree starting temperature, while the wood burning fan is still picking up speed up to approximately 250 degrees. I recommend using a heat gun or thermometer to test the surface temperature of the gas fireplace. If the temperature exceeds 350 degrees, the 812 would be the better fan to use. Any lesser temperatures would be better served by the 806.
By Eric from MD on July 14, 2015

Answer:
It will probably work but at a lower average airflow and maybe take longer for it to start turning. Looking at the gas/pellet-oriented fans, the heat sink and peltier junction is closer to the heat source, so that would get going quicker on a gas or pellet stove and run faster.
By Brian from Huntington, MA on July 14, 2015

Answer:
I also use my fan on a Vermont castings vigilant and it works great! I also have a Hearthstone soapstone stove that I thought the fan would work on as well. For reasons I am not sure, the fan does not perform on the soapstone like it does on the cast iron. I was able to determine that the cast iron gets quite a bit hotter than the stone. The soapstone provides great heat but the heat transfer seems different. So if the operating temperature on the gas stove is not equivalent to the woodstove, I don't think the fan will perform as expected.
By Carl from VT on July 14, 2015

Answer:
We used it on a VT Castings "winter warm" fireplace insert and it worked great, even though it was not directly on the major heat from the top of the stove. I hope that helps.
By Mary from Golden, CO on July 14, 2015

Answer:
You are going to love this fan. It will operate when the stove is barely warm. We let our stove go out at night. And our fan continues to turn until the very end of the heat. I would buy each one of our kids this fan, but they don't have a stove.
By Betsy from Montpelier, VT on July 14, 2015

Answer:
My fan is on a Jotul Oslo woodstove that replaced a Vermont Castings Vigilant that we used for 30 years. It works wonderfully on the new stove. I would suggest you try the one you have and if it doesn't work to your satisfaction, try to garner information specific to the gas stove model. I'm sure others must be in your situation.
By Tina from Catskills, NY on July 14, 2015

Answer:
I feel that the heat will make the fan rotate and do what it has always done.
By Debra from Holmen, WI on July 14, 2015

Answer:
The Caframo Ecofan AirMax 812 Heat Powered Wood Stove Fan is the best thing that I could have purchased for my stove! It takes little heat for the blades to start turning to move the air that is rising form the stove top! I find that it increases in speed as the stove temperature rises and is so silent in it operation that unless you look at you would not even know it is spinning! Moves the hot air to more corners of the room! Just love it! I have no doubt that it would operate quite nicely on any flat, heat-radiating surface as yours is! It has made a big overall improvement in the temperature of our room! Thanks, Ecofan Air Max 812.

By Vinny from Floral Park, New York on March 4, 2014
I have a traditional brick fireplace with a gas insert. Where would I put this or is there something else I can use to help disperse the heat?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on March 4, 2014

Answer:
If your insert does not have any listed options for its own blower, an Ecofan may be a good idea if you have enough room to place it on top of your insert with space behind it to enable air circulation. However, this particular Ecofan is only suitable for use with a wood stove, your gas insert would need a
Caframo Ecofan CA 806. The dimensions of the base for that model are approximately 2 1/4 inches deep by 6 1/4 inches wide.

By Edward from Southington, Ct. on January 21, 2013
Can I use this on top of my kerosene heater? It is a Aladdin blue flame. The top is 9 inches in diameter and runs up to 600 deg. F.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 22, 2013

Answer:
Although not designed with this type of installation in mind, there would not be an issue with using the 812 AirMax fan for this purpose. I do not recommend using any other model, as the 812 is the only one that has a motor with a high enough temperature rating. I would also verify that the top of your heater is perfectly flat, as the fan will not function well if placed on a domed or dished surface.

By Glory from Lancaster, PA on January 1, 2014
Does the color of the blade make any difference to performance? For example the weight of the blade, etc.
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on January 2, 2014

Answer:
No, the color options are for purely aesthetic purposes.

By Jingying from NY on November 14, 2013
I just purchased the AirMax 812 wood stove fan. After I read the instruction, I am not sure it can be used by my wood stove. My stove was installed in the wall. The largest portion (about 3/4) is in the wall, the outside of the top surface can just barely place the stove fan. The pipe was in the wall. Your instruction said that the fan shouldn't be used directly in front of the stove pipe or at the front of the stove. I took the pictures to show you what kind of stove I have and where I put the fan. Can you tell me if this fan is a good fit for my stove? In the instructions, it said the surface temperature should be lower than 650 degrees. How can I know what the temperature is? It will be inconsistent, because the temperature always changes with the fire. I couldn't find some thermometer with an alarm. Can you please help me?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 14, 2013

Answer:
The surface temperature of your stove can be determined by using a magnetic thermometer or a laser thermometer. It is recommended to use a magnetic thermometer for any wood stove or insert, as this will make sure that the stove is not overfired.

The fan can start operating at temperatures as low as 150 degrees, which should be achieved even at the front of your insert. The fan is facing the wrong way in the photos and should be rotated to face the room, rather than the stove. It would be rare, even with the hottest fire, for the stove surface temperature to exceed 650 degrees. As such, there should be no damage to the fan.

By Rick from NH on December 8, 2014
I have had such good results with the Ecofan Airmax 812 on my Vermont Castings Encore stove that I want to know if I can use two Ecofans and get even better results. Would this work? Is there a diminishing return aspect or could I move 2x the air. My house is large (4200 square feet) and this stove sits in a center fireplace so I would like to move as much air as possible.
By eFireplaceStore on December 9, 2014

Answer:
You can certainly utilize a second fan in your case. The distance between the fans is great enough that the amount of heat pulled into the base via conduction should not cause any interference of the operation of either fan.

By Shirley from Whidbey Island, WA on March 4, 2015
What is the best way to measure the temperature of my stove top? I have an older, Country free-standing stove.
By Chris C. on March 5, 2015

Answer:
A stove top thermometer such as our HomeSaver Magnetic Stove Thermometer is an excellent accessory to have atop any wood burning stove to ensure that the stove is not over-fired. However, an infrared thermometer that can be acquired through a hardware store is also an alternative to periodically check stove top temperatures.

By Tommy from Louisiana on December 13, 2013
What is the difference between the 810 and the 812?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on December 13, 2013

Answer:
The basic Ecofan 810 model is capable of moving 105 CFM of air, while this larger 812 model can move 150 CFM. The operating temperature between the two is very similar. Besides differences in blade color, these are the only things that separate them.

By Gerry from Maine on December 1, 2013
Do these fans blow air into other outlying rooms or is a motorized fan better for that purpose?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on December 2, 2013

Answer:
Indeed, a motorized blower made for your wood stove would be a better option for maximizing heated air circulation to adjacent rooms.

By Gizell from Buffalo, N.Y. on January 8, 2014
My wood stove has a shroud around the entire stove. The top sits about 3" above the firebox.
Does the fan have to sit on the fire box itself? Or, will it operate as efficiently sitting on the vented shroud?
By Chris on January 8, 2014

Answer:
The fan itself will begin to spin at around 150F, but require no more than approximately 250F to be creating 175 CFM. Being that the top is only 3" above your firebox, I would expect the shroud would easily reach the temperature. However, I would use a stove thermometer or an infrared thermometer to ensure the shroud is reaching a high enough temperature allowing the fan to operate effectively.

By Jan from China Village, Maine on September 16, 2013
Our fan no longer circulates. What can we do to 'fix' it?

By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 17, 2013

Answer:
It is likely that for a long term fix, the fan motor will need to be replaced, as they do lose their ability to produce voltage over time.

However, the motor seal can also be oiled by lubricating the output shaft. The fan blade set screw will need to be removed and the fan blade set aside. Using a product such as 3-in-1 oil, lubricate the motor shaft while the fan assembly is laying on its back. Slowly rotate the shaft to allow the oil to work into the motor windings. This will often help to extend the life of the fan motor.

By Rose from Kellogg, ID on February 1, 2015
Do these come with three blades or two?
By eFireplaceStore on February 2, 2015

Answer:
These fans are no longer manufactured with three blades. The manufacturer switched to a two blade production to make the fans even quieter than they previously were.

By Allison from Westport, MA on February 3, 2014
How well would the AirMax fan work on a very small (600 sq ft capacity) cast-iron wood stove? I am trying to heat a 300 sq ft room, and the heat really doesn't travel far from the stove except to go straight up to the ceiling. I would buy one of these fans if it could better circulate the heat around my cold kitchen! What can you tell me?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 4, 2014

Answer:
These fans work very well to induce a flow of convection, better distributing heat further away from the fan and delivering the cooler air back to the stove to be heated. The fan will achieve maximum airflow at temperatures as low as 250 degrees. Even though cast iron stoves typically have lower surface temperatures than plate steel models, you should still achieve a high enough surface temperature for the fan to work well.

By Callie from Utah on June 5, 2014
What if the surface temperature of your stove exceeds 650 degrees? Will the fan still operate? Will the fan be damaged?
By eFireplaceStore on June 5, 2014

Answer:
The thermoelectric generator can be damaged if the wood stove surface temperature exceeds 650 degrees for prolonged periods. Almost all wood stoves will have a surface temperature of less than 650 degrees under normal operating conditions, although some models can go higher depending on design.
By Tedd from VA on June 5, 2014

Answer:
As the thermocouple is designed to run via heat, there is an upper limit to the temperature it can withstand. There are wires,etc that at >650 may damage the components. If your woodstove top plate is >650, your stove is probably too hot internally. I've had mine quite hot and no issues, and it makes a good indicator when the stove needs wood as the fan turns very slow.
By Carrie from Nokesville, Virginia on June 5, 2014

Answer:
I have never exceeded 650 degrees, so I cannot answer that question. However, with using this fan it tremendously reduced the amount of wood I used. Took me awhile to get it right. Many nights had to open the windows as I got the house tooooo warm :) Love this product!
By Rick from NH on June 5, 2014

Answer:
I have not had mine up that hot but at 600 degrees it was working fine. I would guess your answer should come from the tech people at Ecofan.
By Glenn from Long Island on June 5, 2014

Answer:
Sounds like more of a technical question for the manufacturer. I do not have a temperature gauge but I can tell you the fan has performed flawlessly even during some very hot fires.
By Shaun from Idaho on June 5, 2014

Answer:
We don't have a thermometer on our wood stove, however, when the stove gets really hot the fan starts to make quite a bit of noise (kind of like a rattle).
This of course catches our attention and we either move it to the front of the stove top, or take it off and set it on our hearth. I am not sure if the fan
would be damaged if we left it on, but my guess is the blades may get warped.
By Mike from Salem, MA on June 5, 2014

Answer:
I have pushed the stove to 650 and it still works fine.
By Rich from New York on June 5, 2014

Answer:
The fan will still operate at 650 degrees or higher. I don't know if the fan will be damaged, according to the company info we shouldn't operate the fan at higher. I have an 810 also and ran it higher than I should and it still works fine. To be safe run at the recommended temperatures. Hope that helps
By Matthew from Sunapee, New Hampshire on June 5, 2014

Answer:
I've never known the temperature of my stove but I've had it cranking as hot as possible & the fan worked beautifully.
By Big Black Bear from Boulder, CO on June 5, 2014

Answer:
Sorry, can't answer your question, I only burn pine and rarely get above 600 F. Probably best to ask Caframo.
I WILL say it is a great little fan, it does manage to circulate a good amount of air, is attractive and silent, everything it is advertised to be, would recommend it!
By Gary from Elkton, MD on June 5, 2014

Answer:
The fan runs on heat. The hotter the stove the faster the fan runs. The entire fan is metal, and I can't imagine the fan melting. The heat can't damage the motor. Therefore the very hot stove should not damage the fan.
By Dave from Mill Hall, PA on June 6, 2014

Answer:
Sorry, I can't be of help regarding temp. I have a propane stove which has no integrated fan, so it's convection out the top grate of the stove. I'm careful where I set the fan so its not directly over the louvered surface but works just fine. It needs to be close enough to the heat to work but close to a cooler surface (wall behind) to blow across the hot surface. I have an infrared heat gun but sorry I don't recall how high the temp was. But I'm sure it wasn't over 650. I know if it was over 650 I wouldn't have bought it.
By Monte from Pine, CO on June 6, 2014

Answer:
Been there, done that. The flue temperature gauge on my wood stove was reading 900+ degrees. How did I know? I had loaded the stove with too much little kindling trying to restoke a dying fire. I realized my error when I heard my Ecofan minutes later. It sounded like an airplane ready for takeoff. It was really cranking. I immediately shut down the damper and, using a hot pad, lifted the fan off the stove via the wire hoop on top. Within 5 minutes, both were back to operating normally. The Ecofan apparently experienced no damage and has worked fine since. I wouldn't recommend temperatures above 850-900 degrees for either the fan or stove, but an occasional blip doesn't seem to be a big deal. I generally keep my stove at 500-800 degrees with no problems. I would imagine continued high temperatures will shorten the life of the electric motor (replaceable). I love and still marvel at my Ecofan. Hope this helps.
By Jude from Upstate New York on June 8, 2014

Answer:
Yes, this fan still operates over 650, but the manufacturer says it may damage it, so when I first got it I tried to monitor the stove temp, and took it off when it got to 650 or higher. My little fan is on top of a fireplace insert that has no built in fan. This Ecofan makes NO noise, none, and spins super fast. (I sometimes give it a little twirl to get it started). I found I do not need my stove over the 650 range now to heat the room. This little fan helps me keep the fire temp lower, and still heat the area, but with less wood. Great fan and made solid.

By Joe H. from Pittsburgh, PA on September 22, 2014
We have a Quadrifire 3100 fireplace insert, which extends out from the wall approximately 8 to 9 inches. We have a large family room ( 12 x 22 ) and the insert alone only keeps the area around the insert warm. Would the Ecofan help in this situation? Would we need to place fan at an angle on the insert to draw the cooler air from the side of unit, rather than the back?
By eFireplaceStore on September 23, 2014

Answer:
The ecofan should indeed assist with moving some of the rising heat from the insert further into the room. I recommend checking the surface temperature of the top shelf to ensure the fan will operate properly. Ideally, it would be 225 degrees or greater. The fan will only work if placed flat on the top shelf. It cannot be angled in any way.

By Elijah from Midlothian, TX on February 26, 2015
Can you use this Ecofan in a gas log set in a fireplace?
By eFireplaceStore on February 26, 2015

Answer:
Unfortunately, no. The base of this fan requires direct contact with the hot metal chassis of the fireplace in order to operate properly. Rising heat from a log set will not make the fan operate on its own.

By Dave from Colorado on November 4, 2013
On the 812, almost all the reviews are from woodstove owners. As we have a freestanding gas fireplace, would we expect a lower performance as the surface temperatures may not be as hot as wood? What are your thoughts?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 5, 2013

Answer:
From my experience in testing these fans in a controlled environment, the 812 does indeed move less air at lower temperatures, when compared to the Caframo Ecofan GS 806 Heat Powered Fan for Gas & Pellet Stoves. The gas fan seems to achieve maximum velocity within 50 above its 150 degree starting temperature, while the wood burning fan is still picking up speed up to approximately 250 degrees.

I recommend using a heat gun or thermometer to test the surface temperature of the gas fireplace. If the temperature exceeds 350 degrees, the 812 would be the better fan to use. Any lesser temperatures would be better served by the 806.

By Rich from Shoemakersville, PA on November 11, 2014
Will this fan work on top of a 4100 Quadra firewood burning insert?
By eFireplaceStore on November 11, 2014

Answer:
While the upper shelf of the bay is very short, there should be just enough room for the fan to fit. The surface temperatures will certainly be high enough to power the fan without an issue.

By Brenda from Akron, Ohio on November 9, 2012
We heat our entire house with a fireplace insert (very open floor plan). The electric blower has been intermittent, so I am considering our options. I love the idea of an electricity-free, silent fan. Will you please confirm that this would work on an insert? I understand that it would need to be positioned at the side or at an angle for proper air flow.

Also, please give me a realistic comparison of its effectiveness to what a standard electric insert blower puts out. I'm eyeing the AirMax model because of the large space that needs to be heated, but I don't know if this is even realistic with this type of fan.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 9, 2012

Answer:
As long as the insert has a significant amount of protrusion onto your hearth, the Ecofan could be a good solution for your needs. The fan will start to operate at as low as 150 degrees, and can move up to 150 CFM of air, which is greater than most electric blowers can manage.

The only downside to this type of system is not the amount of air, but the amount of heat it will move. Your built-in blower will always be more efficient, as it is pulling heated air from around the stove casing, which has a considerably higher temperature than the heated air that radiates from the top of the insert. Because of this, the fan is likely to be a bit less effective than your current blower.

By Mike from Pottsville, PA on January 13, 2015
Can this fan be used with an Anthracite hand fired coal fireplace insert?
By Kevin E. on January 13, 2015

Answer:
This particular Caframo fan has an operating temperature between 150 and 650. If the surface of your insert heats up to within this range, then yes, this fan would work for you.
By Robbie from Auburn, AL on January 13, 2015

Answer:
I guess as long as it is going to just sit on top of the stove. The metal of the top of the stove is what heats up causing the fan to generate electricity.
By Bill from Romney, WY on January 13, 2015

Answer:
My Son uses one on his coal stove. Make sure to keep the surface temperature of your stove below 650 degrees.
By Maria from CA on January 13, 2015

Answer:
We use it on top of our pellet stove in our cabin and we love it. The fan, although small, pushes out the heat very well. Most of the time our furnace does not run. The fan is so quiet you'd never know it's running.
By Rick from CA on January 13, 2015

Answer:
In theory it can as long as you have a flat section large enough for this to sit freely on. I'm not familiar with the type of insert, but if it has an existing fan, these are not for you. The are meant for passively radiated stoves. These fans help circulate the air a little.

Your unit must be able to pull cool air from behind the fan so it won't overheat. If that can he done and it can blow air across a heated surface it should work fine.
By DB from PA on January 13, 2015

Answer:
I use the fan on a hitzer 608 stoker mainly to move some air when the stove is at idle. The stovetop is around 180 degrees and it spins at about 20% of its speed. It's rated up to 650 degrees but my stove has fans that move the air so it will never see those temps. It does not move air like an electrical fan or blower but it does move air. I have a thermometer about 40 feet away from the fan and it will raise the temperature almost 2 degrees when in use and the stove is idling. It's in an open basement that's about 2500 square feet
By Brian from Huntington, MA on January 14, 2015

Answer:
I am not sure if the fan will work on an insert. A couple questions need to be answered first. Is there enough surface area to put the fan on and what is the surface temp of the insert. These fans do need a source of cool air so on a conventional wood stove if you put the fan on a corner the fan can pull cooler air and push it across the stove surface. I have my fan sitting on a Vermont castings defiant and it works awesome!

We have a plate steel woodstove (Known as The Boss) enclosed inside a sheet metal cabinet with ducts running from inside the sheet metal covering to the floor vents above it. We could use more air flow. How would this fan stand up to being on top of the woodstove enclosed in the sheet metal "cabinet" sitting directly on the stove's surface?
By Chris C. on November 21, 2014

Answer:
From what you have explained, I would doubt that the Caframo fans would work for you. They rely on the base to be set directly atop the stove with cool air to be pulled through the fins on the back of the fan itself. This temperature difference between the stove top, and the cooler air at the top of the unit is what allows the fan to operate. Placing the unit atop a hot surface surrounded by hot air will not allow the fan to operate as it should.

By Sarah from Maine on November 21, 2013
We have a small wood stove that is made of soapstone. We often use it as our only heat in the winter (no heat upstairs). Our downstairs is basically a big open square with a staircase in the middle. The side of the house that the stove is on gets quite warm (lower 70's) but the other side of the house is often only in the lower 60's. Would adding a fan to the stove improve this heat discrepancy? Do you have any idea by how much?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 22, 2013

Answer:
Use of a circulating fan would indeed offer better balance to the average temperature of the entire house. It is difficult to say how much of a difference will be made without knowing the exact square footage of the home, but on average, a fan can make a 4 to 5 degree difference.

Can I use the Eco fan Airmax powered wood stove fan for my fireplace?
By Chris on January 10, 2014

Answer:
The Caframo Eco Fans will operate only when placed upon a surface in which the temperatures will reach approximately 225F. If your fireplace has a flat space in which to set the fan, it may be prudent to ensure the surface reaches a high enough temperature to operate the fan.

I have seen various letter combinations after the 812 designation. These obviously signify different models but what are the pros and cons of each?
By eFireplaceStore on July 21, 2014

Answer:
The standard 812 fan was revised from a 125 CFM output to a 175 CFM output fairly recently. When this occurred, the "AM" nomenclature was added. The remaining stock we had of the 812 fan has been depleted, so all fans shipped now are the "AM" version. The remaining letters are used to indicate blade color. The physical blade design and CFM output is the same for all colors.

By Marilyn from Greenwich, NJ on September 26, 2013
What material is this fan made of?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 27, 2013

Answer:
The fan body and blades alike are made from cast aluminum.

By Doug from Warren, PA on October 7, 2014
Does this model adjust its speed automatically?
By eFireplaceStore on October 8, 2014

Answer:
This fan will gradually ramp up CFM output as the temperature of the stove increases. The fan will begin turning around 150 degrees and will continually gain momentum until the stove reaches between 225 and 250 degrees. From that point up to the maximum of 650 degrees, the fan will be turning at maximum speed and producing the full 175 CFM of air movement.

By Dorothy from Brockton, Massachusetts on November 22, 2013
Could you use this fan on any wood stove and is this model your biggest one?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 22, 2013

Answer:
This model is indeed the highest CFM model that we offer currently, with an output of 150 CFM. The fan will work with any wood stove that achieves a 150 degree surface temperature, with ideal heat range between 225 and 650 degrees.

I can't order Airmax 812 without having additional fans added to my order I want just one of these! I have a gas stove and live in CO.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 8, 2013

Answer:
It sounds like you may have looked at the fan numerous times or evaluated other models and they were added to your shopping cart. You should be able to view all items in your cart and see all items added. To remove any unwanted fans, erase the number in the quantity box and click the update button. If you have several of the same Airmax 812 fans in the quantity box, revise the quantity to "1" and click update. We can also contact you to place the order via phone if you wish.

My wood stove is 3/4 inside an existing fireplace with a 6 inch clearance from the top of the stove to the opening of the fireplace. There is a 3 inch area at the front of the stove top outside of the fireplace opening. Is this space adequate to place an Ecofan?
By eFireplaceStore on December 8, 2014

Answer:
The height of the fan would make it necessary to place the unit on the 3 inch protruding ledge. I measured a unit we have in stock to verify the 3 1/4 inch depth is accurate and the fan does indeed measure to this depth. The fan is still stable with 1/4 inch protruding over a ledge and the base would still absorb enough heat for the unit to operate properly.

By Betsy from Montpelier, VT on January 27, 2015
I am debating between the 810 and 812 Ecofan for our woodstove. I want to push the heat toward the opposite end of a 20' room which is 11' wide. There are 2 ceiling registers to the upstairs above the stove. Which of the two fans would you recommend? I'm assuming that we will not feel any "breeze" coming off the larger fan.
By Kevin E. on January 27, 2015

Answer:
The larger 812 fan is capable of moving more air at the greater CFM of 175. So, it would be recommended to insure you are moving the greatest amount of air possible. These units do indeed move air and push heat across the room but you will likely not feel rushing air from the unit.
By Jean from Essex, NY on January 27, 2015

Answer:
I would suggest you get the Eco fan 812, it will not push the air the entire 20 feet of your room but it will most likely move it far enough to get to your registers. The only way I know to get more of a blower effect from your stove is to go electric.
By Tyler from MD on January 27, 2015

Answer:
My father has the smaller fan and I bought the larger fan. I definitely notice a difference in the larger fan. If your going to purchase an ecofan i would go with the larger one. You will not be disappointed!
By Ric from CA on January 27, 2015

Answer:
I would go with the larger 812 model because these fans don't push as hard as you would think. Unless you are right in front of it, you won't feel a breeze. They are also temperature sensitive, so the hotter your fireplace the faster the fan will run and vise versa.
By Cathy from OR on January 27, 2015

Answer:
I am sorry that I cannot answer your question very well. We tried the 812, however we had to return it because it was not circulating the air very well at all. It seems that our stove surface stays at about 180 degrees, which must be too low to allow the fan to do its job well. My advice, make sure the surface temp of your stove is hotter than 180. Maybe they can tell you what the optimum temp should be.
By Jay from ID on January 27, 2015

Answer:
You won't feel anything that registers as a breeze. It feels like light air movement at about 1-5 feet away. I sit about 8' in front of my 812 and I don't feel any "breeze". Mostly, it will even out the heat in your room. It's made a huge difference in my entire house. I have a thermostat that ran a base board about 27' in front of mine. It ran constantly in the winter but since I got the fan it doesn't ever run, unless the fire burns down. I would get the big one as the heat sink on top and the Peltier are heavier duty. That alone would justify it for me!
By Allawna from CA on January 27, 2015

Answer:
We have a 13' x 26' room with a wood stove and chose the 812 Ecofan. We were attempting to move the heat through the home as well as the room. We do not feel any "breeze" coming off this larger fan. It has worked perfectly for moving the heat through the room. We also feel a difference in the outer rooms of the home.
By Chuck from OH on January 27, 2015

Answer:
We are using the 812. Our set up is a room 22 ft long and 15 feet wide with peaked ceilings about 15 feet high. The room is south facing with a wall of windows. We live in northern Ohio. We have an addition at the end of the 22 foot room,15' x 12', that has a pocket door that is open during the day.
We are very pleased with the increased room warmth using our Ecofan and we are happy with our purchase!!
By Diana from AR on January 27, 2015

Answer:
I only have experience with the 812. We use it for a room that is 22' x 22'. You will not feel any breeze and the fan is silent.
By Loren from PA on January 28, 2015

Answer:
I would definitely go with the 812. It has almost 30% more CFM (cubic feet per minute) then the 810 (810 is 125 CFM and 812 is 175 CFM). While you won't feel a "breeze", it does move that much more air around the space. The price is only a little more for the 812, but, the cost savings in heat far surpass that small amount in no time. You won't be disappointed.
By Kim from Glen Rock, PA on January 28, 2015

Answer:
I bought the 812. My room is 15 x 13 and I have an adjacent bedroom. It does a good job of distributing air. I chose the 812 "just to make sure" it worked for our purposes and it has been worth it. I haven't noticed a breeze but when I'm warming up the house after an absence I always point the fan to where I'm sitting and it makes that corner of the room noticeably warmer.
By Mike from MN on January 28, 2015

Answer:
Go with the bigger model 812. My room that I use the fan in is similar in size. You will not hear the fan and after about 10 feet or so you won't feel it either but it is working and I feel works very well. Good luck.
By Chris from VT on January 28, 2015

Answer:
I would say get the bigger one, the 812. They say this unit pushes about 150 and 175 cfm depending on the site you look at but I would say it is more like 100cfm when the stove is very hot. So I am glad I didn't get a smaller one. I have a 2500sq foot home and a ceiling fan in the living room were the wood stove is. So, we bought this unit mainly for if the power goes out. But it works OK and we are happy with it. But I would buy the bigger one if I were you. Hope this helps.

There are several models of the Caframo wood stove fans. What is the difference in performance of each of the different styles?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 8, 2013

Answer:
The basic 810 models are capable of moving 105 CFM of air, while the larger 812 model can move 150 CFM. The operating temperature between the two is very similar. Besides differences in blade color, these are the only things that separate them.

By Judy from Forestdale, Massachusetts on February 28, 2014
Our wood stove is a top loader. Sitting a fan on top of this would mean removing it each time we had to load the stove. Although it is simply an extra step, my question is how safe is this extra step? Will handling the fan this often damage the fan? Our more importantly would it damage us?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 28, 2014

Answer:
It is possible to carefully pick up and set aside an Ecofan by using the supplied handle. Depending on the stove, the handle can get quite hot, so a glove should be used when moving the fan. No damage will occur to the fan if it remains upright while being moved. The fan blades are blunt and will not cause injury, but care should be taken to avoid touching them while the fan is spinning, as the motor hub and blades are easily bent.

I'm looking for a fan to help circulate the air in a 12x14 wall tent with a wood stove. What size or model of fan do I need?
By Chris C. on October 14, 2014

Answer:
The AirMax 812 would be the best option that we currently offer as this model moves more air than previous units. I would expect the 812 to circulate air around the space described adequately.

A Great Conversation Piece That Also Does the Job!
By
Curtis Finney
from United Stateson
December 10, 2013
I would recommend this item to a friend.
I was a little worried this fan would not do what was promised but am pleasantly surprised with it. It is a great conversation piece as many of my friends who own stoves saw it and 2-3 have ordered their own. I believe the design itself draws attention and they are surprised to hear it does not require electricity to run. Although it does not move air like a plug-in fan would, the air movement is enough that within a few hours our bedroom which is down the hall and through a door (and always cold) was warmer and stayed warm as long as the fire was going. As long as there is a fire in the stove the fan continues to move warm air.
Pros:
Electric free-no wire or plug to worry about melting. As fire dwindles the fan slows. Unlike a plug-in that runs even when the firebox has cooled. Quiet Industrial design that is cool to look at.
Cons:
None

We have a wood stove in the living room that serves as our main heat source through the winter. While my preferred sitting area is directly in line with the front of the stove, my wife prefers to sit on an angle, which reduces the amount of heat she receives. I purchased this fan, hoping to get her a little more heat. Neither one of us were too sure about the concept, but after firing up the stove we watched in amazement as the fan began to spin faster and faster. The best part was when my wife said "I can really feel that heat now." -- Happy wife - happy life!
Pros:
No electricity. No maintenance (other than occasional dusting)
Cons:
Honestly, there really aren't any. I guess I could wish for even more air movement, but I'm very happy with this purchase.

Quieter than a Whisper
By
Michael
from Naples, NYon
March 6, 2015
I would recommend this item to a friend.
I bought this fan because I use a wood stove for my primary heating. I also get a kick out of unusual scientific gadgets. I can hear it only if I put my ear within a foot or two of the motor. Stove noises and ambient room noise drown it out at greater distances. My soapstone stove is not as hot as a cast iron or steel stove, so the fan probably runs slower on mine. The warmth feels more like radiant heat than a breeze, which is fine with me. Although my ceiling fan distributes most of the heat around the room, aimed directly at my chair, this fan seems to make things cozier. And it's a cool conversation piece.
Pros:
Essentially silent, self-powered, unobtrusive, cool gadget.
Cons:
Kind of pricey.

By

February 28, 2015
Not impressed, the blade runs counter wise , not clock wise. very very little air movement. If they would have told me that the blade runs counter clock wise I would have passed. If the blade ran clockwise it would move some air, it is advertised to run 175CFM which is go if it ran the right way. I emailed the caframo to ask why to help me better understand; but no response.
Pros:
Too little to mention
Cons:

We've been wanting an eco fan for some time. We live off grid and heat solely with wood. Figuring out where to put it on the stove makes for lively conversation and then it starts turning. As you watch it, it's difficult to believe it's moving any air, so we held a piece of paper up in front of it. Sure and begorah it lifted our sheet of paper. We use it to move air toward the back of our home and there's a noticeable difference in temperature back there.
Pros:
moves air, doesn't use any power.

I bought this fan after reading about moving my wood stove air more efficiently. It is an excellent product. I have been burning wood for 25 plus years and this silent running fan moves heated air away from the stove into my living space. All that said it was defective, after a week the blade fell off. The company agreed to the defect but i have yet to receive the replacement part. An overnight shipment would have been appreciated in this cold New England winter.

use with a coal stove
By
Lois
from Hubbardston, MAon
January 28, 2015
I would recommend this item to a friend.
I had my doubts about the ability of this fan, especially when we took it out of the box. we have a Vermont Castings, Vigilant II coal stove and were using ceiling fans and mounted corner fans to move the heated air with some success. The instructions to the ecofan suggest placement on a wood stove to the rear of the stove and not directly in front of the stove pipe. For our coal stove, we found that the ecofan worked better in the front of the stove, to the right/left of the stove pipe (not directly in front) with the back of the fan facing the stove pipe but angled out into the room. Prior to the purchase of the ecofan, the fans we have moved some heat to other areas of the house but not as well as we wanted. After about a week of adjusting placement of the ecofan, we found that with the help of all the other fans, the heated air moved more efficiently throughout the house with higher temps in distant rooms. we picked this fan for the max fan speed (175 revolutions/min) and its varying degree of heat tolerance (175 to 650 degrees) for use with a coal stove.
Pros:
no electricity needed-great way of moving heat around the house when a power failure happens observing the fan speed will give you an idea of heat gain/loss from your stove works well with coal stove too
Cons:
fan rotation may need a little push to get started but will start on its own with patience!!! surprised at the cost hope it will owe us nothing in the long run

We bought the Airmax 812 and it does a great job of distributing the air to our 4 room cabin. We are noticeably warmer in the adjacent bedroom when we point the fan towards the bedroom door which is on the wall farthest from the stove.

ecofan 812 airmax for wood stove
By
Stinger
from Arvonia, Virginiaon
January 27, 2015
I would recommend this item to a friend.
Even as it spins atop my woodstove, this fan is a bit of a mystery to me .I can't tell you exactly how it works- but it certainly works. I read mixed reviews before I purchased it but I really wanted to heat the house with little electricity as a sort of personal challenge. It is true that you cannot feel the air blowing on your hand just inches from the fan. It is also true that if you sit back a bit, you can feel the heat coming in your direction. The EcoFan helps the stove to heat up the room much more quickly and seems to work perfectly with the temperatures of my stove. When the fan slows down, I always seem to have just the right amount of hot coals to add more wood and get it fired up again. Therefore, the fan acts as a perfect gauge of when to add more firewood (which is less often than I had previously thought.) This item definitely works exactly as intended and described and will be a big help with heating the house.

Everyone with a wood stove needs this fan. It makes zero noise and runs on just the heat from the stove. Love it. It's fun to see it still going around even after the fire has been out for 8 hours. We can tell we still have embers just by looking at the fan.

The unit is built well functions as stated. Its a great addition to your wood stove. Don't expect a major wind though. It does circulate air and it does not use electricity. Hopefully the technology will get to the point where a considerable wind will be produced
Pros:
quiet and circulates the air
Cons:
needs to produce a greater air flow

The service was fast and the price was good but maybe I was expecting too much after reading some of the comments. I put the fan on the back of the stove per directions , checked the temperature of the stove top with an infrared thermometer , 288 degrees f and the blade was moving but I just don't feel much air movement. I even lit a match and held it in front of the fan to check for air movement and it wouldn't even blow the match out , I guess I was hoping for more. Like I said , I was impressed with the company just not the product.
Cons:
lack of air movement

I bought one of these fan a couple of weeks ago and we love it! No noise like the little electric fan we used to run, it doesn't run if the stove is cold so no cold air blowing when the stove runs down over night. Actually most mornings, the stove is still a little warm and the fan is running slowly. We run our stove in a large room with high ceilings and it's been much more comfortable since we got the fan - keeps the warm air moving all over the room!

We heat almost exclusively with wood and have used two Ecofans on our woodstove, allowing us to heat three rooms with one fire. The fact that they operate without electricity means that we enjoy their benefits even during a power outage.

Huge Improvement In Air Circulation

I purchased a Caframo Ecofan AirMax 812 Heat Powered Wood Stove Fan to help circulate the heat in my sitting room. I have a wood stove that I have been using to heat my house, and have been using an electric floor fan for years to circulate the heat. I wasn't happy with the constant noise of the electric fan, and all of the ash that was being pushed through the house. My husband noticed your fan in a stove store and suggested that we might buy one in the future; so I decided to surprise him with one for Christmas. He was so pleased with the gift, and we are both more than pleased with the way the fan is functioning for us. It is quiet and powerful. We are getting soooooo much more heat throughout the house. Our days and nights have been unusually cold and the house is warm. Also, we have had much smaller electric bills this winter. I would recommend this fan to anyone.
Pros:
Quiet and powerful
Cons:
None

I've been using Caframo Ecofans on both wood stoves for over 5 years. I got them after several winter power outages and needed something besides creeping heat to keep the house warm. The fans have been a reliable solution to pushing heated air away from the stove besides using convection - and standing close to the stove. Usually, I also use a ceiling fan to blow down air, in the middle of the room and help push it into other surrounding rooms, when the lights are on. One of the fan's motors gave out last year and Caframo's 800# service was great - had the motor in stock and shipped right away. Otherwise, they just keep on going and going, without using any electricity !
Pros:
Long Lasting Reliable Works as advertised Little kids' curiosity about the blades turning won't hurt them.....the blades stop readily when touched.

The only comment I want to make is that I personally like the look of the all black, but the fan spins so fast you can not see it when the stove is hot. I love the fan and I still prefer the all black look, but you need to take care when reaching anywhere near the fan. You could get a quick nip if you reach too close.
Pros:
Wonderful invention. It does everything it claims. Pushes hot air from the stove into the room. My husband 's back really has problems, he pulls his shirt up, turns his back to the stove with the fan directing heat off the stove to his back. He says it really feels good and helps! No cons to convey.

Pros:
It's very quiet and helps distribute the heat throughout the room. It's also a good indicator as to when more logs need to be added to the wood stove. It senses the drop in temperature before the thermometer on the wood stove goes down.
Cons:
I bought two of these fans. One seems to get "stuck" occasionally after slowing down, and needs a push to start again.

This fan works just as advertised. No connections, very quiet and fun to watch as its starting up. Two things keep from being a five star to us, one is that the blade is sort of a faded gold color that is not as vibrant as depicted. The other is that the volume of air moved is not we hoped, but we still think it a good buy.
Pros:
Quiet. No set up, just unbox and place it.
Cons:
Not a very noticeable air flow.

My package was received earlier than expected , well packaged and shipped (double boxed). It looks and works great, no noise.. We are extremely pleased with our ecofan.

The fan works very well. It takes a bit (as described ) to get to the proper temperature but once it starts as long as the stove is hot it is silently moving are through the room.

I bought this fan because i was intrigued with the"non-electric" concept not knowing we were in for a major winter storm that knocked out our power for over a day. This fan kept circulating the warmth from our wood stove during the outage. We haven't used the ceiling fan since we bought the Ecofan.
Pros:
Works well, circulates the warm air from the wood stove. Also is an indicator of the heat coming from the stove.....fan slows down, time for more wood.
Cons:
I read in the instructions that eventually the fan motor will need to be replaced. I wonder how much they are and how long they last.....time will tell!

I've used Ecofans from Caframo since 2001, with my woodstove to help circulate the air/heat away from the stove and into the rest of the house. We have two, one on each side of the stove (Regency F2400). The new design seems to work even better than the old design. I suspect the improved blade shape results in more air being moved. And the improved radiator design will probably make the whole unit more efficient, too.

Loving it! See comments under Pros tab
Pros:
At first I wasn't sure if this was going to be a good purchase. Now that we have been using it, it great! Before our 1 bedroom / loft would just have the heat go straight up and try to blow the heat back down with the ceiling fan. The result was hot loft area and cool downstairs, with cooler room off to the side. Using the Airmax 812 we are able to heat to down stair area first and don't even use the ceiling fan. Also nice that I did not have to run electrical to power anything. Have already noticed that we will be using less wood to heat (burn). In my opinion this fan pays for itself.
Cons:
Really none that I have seen. Would be nice if it put out more cubic feet of airflow, but then the unit would probably have to be twice the size.

I have to start by saying I was very skeptical, this is not an inexpensive item (in my opinion). However, after reading all the reviews, I thought I would give it a try. My husband was even more skeptical than I, so I had to convince him that we should try it. We LOVE it! Our wood stove is in our living room with french doors to our kitchen/dining area, both areas have cathedral ceilings (lots of lost heat!). We used to be so cold sitting in the kitchen but, no more. This fan is awesome! There is only 1 to 2 degree difference between the rooms now - absolutely fantastic! Plus, it is quiet! Totally would recommend this product to anyone. As an aside - I don't usually do reviews on products, this is an exception and an exceptional product. Also, my negative husband agrees!!
Pros:
Quiet. Does the job perfectly.
Cons:
A bit pricey - but it does what you want it to do!

My stove doesn't have a fan option or blower so I use a small electric fan to get the heat circulating on real cold days and bought the Ecofan to keep air circulating when I turn off the electric fan and go to bed. It does just that and of course it's silent.
Pros:
Quiet, no electrical cords, no energy requirements. Only operates when there is sufficient heat in the stove so it doesn't move cool air.
Cons:
Somewhat limited on moving massive amounts of air but that's obvious before you purchase one.

The Ecofan 812 that I purchased at this store has really helped, so far, to convect the warmth to to the far corners of a 2900 sq ft white cedar log home heated by a wood stove. I live in the northern Adirondack Mts. I've had 11 snows so far this season 11/22/14. In my home, the fan raises the temp by 3-4 degrees in those very far areas of the house. Remember, you are raising at the cooler areas by 3-4 degrees. My house is pretty tight , so once the fan starts turning, it takes 2-3 hours to convect in to my corner to raise the temp. Don't expect a miracle. Anybody who heats by wood have colder areas. It makes those areas more comfortable. I use solar for electricity, so not using elect. or batteries is sure a +. Best prices I could find, so keep on trucking !!

Just got it in UPS left it on the porch. Started a fire in my Hearthstone Soap Stone stove, expected it to take at least a half hour to get hot enough to run this fan. Thermometer was just reading about 150 deg. on the stove pipe and the stone top was just warm to the touch, reached over and touched the fan blade and it started turning on its own, couldn't believe it ?!? Kept turning faster as the temp came up, moving warm air all through the room can't believe it works so well. Put aside your doubts and order this thing its absolutely great !! Shipping was right on time, very pleased with this purchase. PS, this is the Airmax 812

Ecofan 812

I would recommend this item to a friend.
First off, company was great to deal with, very quick delivery of product. As for the Ecofan, it is truly amazing, in about 5 to 10 minutes after building a fire, the fan begins to spin, and although it doesn't quite feel like it's pushing the warm air out, it is, as our temperature in our family room is much warmer than when we were not using the fan. It's quiet, unique looking and using no electricity! I'd give it a five, but have only burned a hand full of times this fall and do not know how well it will hold up over time.
Pros:
No energy costs, Quiet Unique look
Cons:
Could throw more air out into room, but not bad overall.

Love this fan. So glad to have bought it. Highly recommend it to anyone who has a would burning stove.
Pros:
It circulates the heat so much better than the fan that was installed in the stove. I can move it to push the warm air to other directions. Loving it It's silent and is so efficient. No electricity use. This is gong to save a lot of money this winter.
Cons:

After returning a defective fan we stuck the replacement on the stove and were wowed! I love watching it turn and I can judge the temperature of the stove by the speed of the fan. It directs the heat into an adjacent room and that room is noticeably warmer. Our stove is the center of our house and the fan is a definite addition to the character of the place. It's very cool....
Pros:
Directs heat from the stove efficiently and without obstructing the flow of the house. It's quiet. It's fun to watch.

Circulates air, but not as well as forced air fan
By
Shaun
from Northern Idahoon
June 5, 2014
We purchased this fan mid-winter, after the cheap electric fan that came with our stove stopped working. The advantages are it is quiet, will work even during a power outage, and it shuts down on it's own (as the stove cools, the fan gradually comes to a stop). However, for us it did not work as well as an electric forced air fan. It did not put out nearly as much heat. Most of the time this was not a big issue. However, since it was a really cold winter, on the days it dropped below zero we really noticed it. This may be because our stove was designed to work with the electric fan, which would push out the hot air trapped in the space between the back of the stove and the heat shield.

Caframo Ecofan Airmax 812 with Gold Blades

This is amazing! There is air movement any time there is any amount of heat in the stove, even when you think there is no heat if there ii hot embers the fan is moving air. less heat the slower it turns. We purchased the gold blades, following review recommendation, so the blades could be seen when they are turning, I can see that the black blades could be an issue with being seen. We were so surprised in the difference the fan made with keeping the area warm. This has been a really cold odd winter and we have been very comfortable with our thermostat set at 65, there is no way we could have done that before we purchased the fan. Before our purchase we read reviews and were like hmmm...if it works half as well as we are reading it will be worth the purchase. We were shocked at the difference it really did make. Would strongly recommend it! well worth every penny!
Pros:
No electric used

Cool Tech
By
Monte
from Pine, COon
February 26, 2014
I would recommend this item to a friend.
This is a most amazing device. A fan with no wires or batteries that literally runs off the heat of your stove. Right out of the box, I set it on my stove and built a fire. At about 275 degrees on a flue thermometer, it slowly starts to turn; rather eerie actually. I have the large one and with a fire stoked and going, it puts out a significant breeze which I direct toward a stairwell. With a hot, roaring fire, it sounds almost like it wants to take off, serving as a warning you're getting too hot. One cool thing is the next morning with no overnight stoking, the stove is still warm to the touch and the fan is turning about 3-5 rpm. Like it doesn't want to quit. I highly recommend the fan, it seems well made, and in the event it stops working, probably with many hours of use, replacing the electric motor, will restore the fan.
Pros:
Well made and a cool-looking design Does actually move some air No wires Large Wow factor, runs on heat!
Cons:
Expensive but worth it. Rotating blades are a slight danger (no guard), for homes with kids. A guard could probably be offered as an accessory but it would ruin the aesthetics of the design.

The "Little Fan that Could"

I would recommend this item to a friend.
Got this "little" fan on the recommendation of a friend who has TWO of them . . . took his advice with a grain of salt, but the sale price made the purchase much less painful than I anticipated. When it arrived, I was surprised that it was so, umh, SMALL and was completely ready to be disappointed. Well, I am the first to admit my first impression was very wrong! Set it on my stove, and within minutes, those little blades were whirling around . . . no noise, no wind current, just turning around smoothly. My first thought was, "Is this all there is?" Our home is only about 900 square feet, but is very poorly insulated and is open all the way up to a second floor loft bedroom and the eves above the living room and dining room -- it has been really hard to heat. At night we had to use a heater in the first floor bedroom (down a hall from where the stove is) and the kitchen NEVER got warm. Within an hour of setting this fan up, the temperature had gone up 4 degrees, all the way in the kitchen at the opposite end of the house. Now it just stays comfortable. Easy to take this fan for granted, but don't! It is AWESOME! Long story short, I love this fan! If you have any doubts, please put them aside. You will be amazed!
Pros:
Quiet, efficient, intriguing looks!
Cons:
None!

This little fan doesn't move a lot of air but it does definitely get the heat out into the room. I have a Hearthstone stove that sits fully on the hearth outside of my fireplace and I have no circulating blower. Without the fan, the heat tended to go straight up to the ceiling. The fan sets up enough of a flow to make the middle of the room at seat level warm as well. It is a great conversation piece too when I tell people it runs on electricity but has no cord and no batteries!
Pros:
good looking quiet effective cool gadget
Cons:
expensive but still worth it not super powerful

My wife and I had put off the purchase of an Ecofan because it seemed a bit pricey, but we decided to make it a Christmas present between us. From the first fire in our wood stove, we could tell the difference. During the winter, we depend on the wood stove to heat the house with the central furnace only as a back up during the night or on extremely cold days. With the Ecofan, our main room downstairs easily reads 3 to 4 degrees warmer than what it used to average without the fan. The entire room heat and adjoining kitchen just seem to be more equally heated. We are happy with the purchase.
Pros:
Creates even room temperature More heat into adjoining rooms No maintenance No batteries to replace

Great little fan and conversation piece. PURE MAGIC, where else can you have a product that is self powered and not solar powered. Amazing this fan can produce enough power from the temperature difference between the hot stove and cooler air to turn the fan blades. You can really get the fan humming once the stove is up to temp. Don't have a temp gauge on stove but it does the trick. Honestly can't truly tell yet a noticeable difference in warm air movement yet, but it certainly is moving/mixing some air and that can only help.

We have considered buying this fan for several years but never quite got around to it. This fan is unbelievable. We use it on our propane gas stove which runs much hotter than a normal "gas" heating stove. (I bought an inexpensive disc type grill thermometer prior to purchasing so I would know which model was most appropriate) Our thermostat is all the way across the room and I don't think our stove has ever shut down without us physically turning the thermostat down. Now, with this fan, the stove cycles periodically just because so much warm air is being pushed out into the room. And the fan continues to turn long after the fire has cycled off, just with the residual heat. I can't believe we waited this long!
Pros:
see above

none

I saw the Ecofan at a friend's house and had to have one- I literally went home, looked it up, and bought one. The product really does what it says and heating the house is much more economical (we use less wood). I did have an issue right off the bat with it making a loud noise at a certain temp, and was taken care of promptly by the company's service center, leaving me very impressed. I would say to all who have a woodstove: if you don't have an Ecofan, get one. Seriously.

Arrived well packed. Tried to figure out how a temperature differential between the heat below and the cooler fins could cause energy that would drive the blades but it does. Does not move a lot of air but heat should not be moved at high speeds. Fascinating to watch yet hard to understand. Sitting on top of a kerosene space heater in my garage it keeps the whole 3 car garage 20 degrees warmer than outside. Without the fan, had to keep the heater near by.
Pros:
Fascinating
Cons:
Wish it moved a little more cubic feet of air per minute.

I guess I'm right in the "middle". I do like the fan because there is no power cord and it's very quiet. I just wish it moved my warm/hot air from the woodstove around more. I think if I had two of them....one on either side of the stove pipe it may be better. But with the price I can't afford to do that right now. All in all it's a cool product, but needs a bigger blade.
Pros:
Small and quiet
Cons:
Doesn't move air as much as I would like

My fan is on a fireplace insert with a blower. The eco fan is nice when you don't need the blower or when i turn the blower off at night . It's a great addition to heating your house with wood.
Pros:
Quite
Cons:
Should have gotten a colored blade instead of black. You can't see it spinning and you could get to close. I did.

A fan completely powered by the heat off your wood stove is very novel. There is no way to say how much it benefits but it has to be a good thing to move air around by other than convection. It is noiseless. It also lets me know when I need more fuel. It slows down when the heat is reduced. I like it a lot. It's attractive and a real conversation piece.

This is a really nice fan. Once the temp on the woodstove hits about 100 degrees, it starts up, increases speed with increased temps. It puts out a good breeze, and today was the first day of the season for the electricity to go out. I was really pleased that the stove was on and the fan was running, warming the room.
Pros:
Small, easy to use, reliable, handle stays cool

We just started the wood stove & use the Ecofan instead of the built in fan. It doesn't take long to start, is super quiet (the built in one was not) & keeps running for a very long time.

This fan has done a spectacular job of getting the air to circulate throughout our kitchen.

The difference that this product makes in terms of making the room much more comfortable is simply astounding.

Well, you can’t feel any air draft but you sure can tell that it’s getting the heat to parts of the room it didn’t used to reach. Good product and price. I’ve seen one like it for over $100 more at a store in our town.

If the price of this fan causes you to do a double-take, don’t worry. It’s a great little product and will save you money. I can’t believe the difference it’s made already, and I haven’t had it long. The room I have my stove in is about 170 square feet, and I’ve found in the past that when I run electric fans, hoping to circulate the heat, they actually make me feel colder! Plus, they’re too loud. This little fan doesn’t turn fast, but it’s silent and keeps the heat circulating. Really nice to have, too, when the power goes out! If you have a wood stove, you should buy one of these.

If you want to increase the efficiency of your wood stove's heating abilities without increasing your work or your power bill and at the same time doing it in an environmentally friendly way, I'd strongly recommend that you get one of these fans. We have this model, and it works great for us, even up here in Maine where the winter stays bitterly cold for a long time. We live on a farm, and our home has two floors, so if I had it to do over again I'd probably buy the more expensive model with three blades. But I'm not complaining about this one--it really does a great job for us. I like the fact that it's environmentally friendly, like I said, and doesn't make any noise and doesn't blow dust around like an electric fan would. In fact, some relatives of ours got a fan just like it for their house, and they love it too.

What a great idea. What a great product. We live in northern New England where it’s cold, cold, cold so much of the year. On top of that we live in an older home, nearly 2000 square feet, that was built a long time ago, and the insulation is really poor. For years we struggled along trying to stay warm with our wood burning stove, buying electric fans and blowers to move the heat around. The trouble was, they just didn’t work that well. And they used extra electricity, and they were noisy. I’m so glad we saw one of these fans in operation when we visited our neighbors. They sang its praises and sold us on it! We were concerned about the price, but then we were reminded that in the long run it pays for itself by making your stove more efficient and by saving electricity. Anyway, we highly recommend you get one of these. You won’t believe how well it works. Oh, and here’s a tip—when you’re using it, also set a pan of water near the stove to add moisture to the air.

I’ve had this fan for a couple of years now and have been really happy with it. I did some “do-it-yourself” maintenance on it recently, and I thought I would share that with others. If you’ve had your fan for a while and it won’t spin as fast as it used to, you can speed it up again by taking the fan apart (unscrew the screws holding it together), taking out the thermoelectric module, and carefully scratching off the heat sink compound (it’s silver) that’s on one side. Then put some silicone grease on it. Then put it back together again. Hopefully you’ll have the same experience I had—the fan works like new again!

Cooler Near the Stove, Warmer Elsewhere

I would recommend this item to a friend.
If you have a wood stove or fireplace, you know that one of the problems is you can be pretty nigh scorched when you’re close to it but freezing cold a few feet away. This fan alleviates that problem. I hoped it would keep the house warmer, but I hadn’t thought of the fact that it also keeps the air around the stove moving, so it feels bearable there. If you’re thinking that you could save money by buying an electric fan to move the heated air around, take it from me—I learned the hard way. That just doesn’t work—it costs money, and the air cools down as it’s blown around. This fan works great, no noise, you don’t have to turn it off and on…. It’s really a great idea, and we’re thrilled with it!

I love this terrific product. It works so well that the only suggestion I can give is that I wish they would design one that would work for stoves placed inside an existing fireplace. I really like the fact that you can kind of keep track of how hot your fire is getting by watching how quickly the blades are rotating. It doesn’t make any noise either, which I can’t say for the former electric fan we used to use! If you have a wood burning stove, your setup really isn’t complete unless you have one of these.

This is better than any electric fan. Before I got this fan I had an electric one that would turn on and off automatically. I like this one better, though, because not only do you not have to remember to set a timer, but it also saves energy. By the way, I read some people’s comments that claim you have to put the fan in some exact spot on the stove top or it won’t work. Well, I didn’t find that to be true. As long as the stove is hot enough, the fan spins no matter where I put it on the stove.

If you really want to get warm air moving around your living area, these little fans are the best way to do it. In fact, after years of experimenting, I’d say they’re the only way to do it. Great product, great price. Saves you lots of money over the years too.

Old Stove, New Fan

This works great to help my old wood burning stove work more efficiently. I’ve used it all winter. One tip—put a container of water on top of the stove too so the air in your house isn’t so dry.

My wife really likes this product. On cold nights, she sits right in its path and enjoys the flow of warm air. We can definitely tell a difference in the air circulation. This is a really good product.

Over the last seven years we have bought two of these items. They are exceptional, particularly in how they distribute the heat.

Doesn't Require High Heat

I would recommend this item to a friend.
I thought maybe this fan wouldn’t work until the stove was really, really hot, but I’ve been happy that it works even when the stove isn’t all that hot. I like its compact dimensions. It’s exactly what I was looking for.

Works Great

I would recommend this item to a friend.
We used to have a problem when heating with our wood stove—maybe you’ve had the same problem. The area of our house near the stove would get warm—sometimes too warm—while other areas would stay too cool. I can’t believe how this one little fan has changed all that, helping the heat be distributed more evenly throughout the house. I haven’t had it very long, but I wanted to pass along these good comments to others. It does what they say it will do, and I also like that it works silently.

Works Great With Woodstove

I would recommend this item to a friend.
This product is simply amazing when one puts it to work on top of a wood stove. It runs extremely fast, but what astounds me is how effective it is when it comes to dispersing the heat where it needs to go. Even more remarkable is the manner in which it operates. Unlike similar products, it does not operate like an electric fan. It is extremely difficult to explain how it operates; instead, it is easier to watch it in action where it is quite easy to see how it is designed to function.

Excites Curiosity

This fan works as it was described, although I do have to squelch my curiosity that wants to take it apart to figure out how it functions. It produces a nice flow of air, but I did think that it would turn a little faster than it does.

Pros and Cons
By
Janet Patterson
from South Dakotaon
August 22, 2010
I would recommend this item to a friend.
I do like this fan, but if you think it directly and completely replaces an electric fan or blower on your stove, you should realize that it doesn’t do that. I like the fact that it isn’t loud like the electric blower on my stove, which is nice when I have people over and we want to converse without shouting at each other. The fan does what it’s supposed to do, helping to circulate the heat throughout the area. But I’ve found that no matter how hot the stove gets, I have to physically push the blades to start it moving—it doesn’t just start rotating on its own. And it won’t rotate quickly until the stove gets pretty hot. For me this is a bit of a problem, since I like to start a fire in the stove when I leave for work and let it warm the house all day. Unless I wait around in the morning for the stove to get really hot and then start the blades spinning, it just sits there. I don’t want to sound too negative, though. The product does what the manufacturer says it will do. I may buy a second one—I think the two together would move as much air as my electric blower does.

So Glad We Bought One

When people used to talk to me about these fans or when I saw them advertised, I thought, “Cheap gadget. Probably a trick, won’t work.” Well, I was wrong. We went ahead and bought one a few weeks ago. I’m not paying for electricity to run our stove’s blower any more (and the noisy thing never worked that well anyway). You can tell that the fan is circulating the warmth through the room. It really is amazing. I recommend this product.

When you get down to it, this product is the best one currently available for purchase on the Internet. It is extremely effective when it comes to making a room nice and toasty for all of the occupants.

Everyone in the family has fallen in love with our Caframo fan. It is excellent when it comes to getting the warm air to more effectively circulate throughout the house.

Very Quiet
By
Mildred Lopez
from Vermonton
May 17, 2010
I would recommend this item to a friend.
This is a very ingenious product. It is destined to become the conversation piece whenever someone sees it, but it runs so quietly that unless you are looking at it, the chances are you will not be able to notice it running. Since this fan is activated by heat, you do not need to worry about either electricity or batteries. In order for it to work, you will need to position it so that cool air can flow in from the back, and it is because of this design that it is well nigh impossible to use this product in conjunction with a fireplace. I realize that because of the set up at my home, I will not be able to get optimal results from this fan, but overall, what I do get is something that really is quite special.

Works for Wood Burning Stoves

I would recommend this item to a friend.
We have a pellet stove, and we tried to use this fan with it, but that didn't work. The pellet stove top just doesn't generate enough heat to get the blades turning--I guess it's really well insulated or something. But this fan has been really helpful when we've used it with our wood-burning stove.I like the fact that it never has to be turned on or off. It's totally automatic and works great. We recommend it to friends.

I made the decision to purchase this fan for friend who owned a stove and had a good deal of trouble getting the air to move around the house. Ever since he installed it, he has found it to make a significant difference in the temperature of his home. Not only is this able to move air with ease but also it looks really cool as it operates. He loves it so much that he has told me that his greatest fear is for it to get damaged in any way.

A Converted Skeptic

I’m a skeptic, and when I read other people’s praises about this product, I thought they were probably exaggerating, but I decided to get one and find out for myself. Well, now I’m joining the ones singing its praises—I really love this fan! We can really tell an improvement in the ability of our stove to heat the house, and it doesn’t increase our electric bill. Very happy with this product.

One year I decided to get this fan and give it to a good friend of mine as a present. I made the decision to get it and to give it because I already own one like it. What is really remarkable is how often this fan becomes a conversation piece, particularly because of its design.

Runs by Itself, Great Little Fan
By
Kimberly Allen

What a great idea! I love the fact that the fan runs by itself when the stove gets hot enough. It moves the heat all through the room where our stove is. I'm very happy with this product!

Great in Keeping Home Warm

I would recommend this item to a friend.
This fan is full of surprises, and I am happy to report that on numerous occasions, it proved me wrong. Initially after I had taken one look at it, I thought that there was literally no way that it would work. This was not helped in the least by my not properly installing the fan so that it could work effectively. However, once I figured out what I was doing wrong and made the corrections needed to get things working properly, the results were significantly better.

This item does a good job, but it does not actually reclaim the heat. I like that it runs without using electricity. I can even use it to rekindle the fire.

Ideal For Circulating Air

This is a very effective product that operates extremely well without making use of electricity. Unfortunately, it does not move as much air as I had hoped it would.

Disperses Heat

I would recommend this item to a friend.
When using a woodstove, most of the heat is concentrated in the area around the stove. A ceiling fan helps some, but it doesn't really solve the problem. Although small, this Ecofan does a great job of dispersing heat throughout the home.

Ordered Two

I actually ordered two of these fans in order to send the heat in opposite directions. They arrived quickly and work just as they were described. This product is an exceptional item.

I am quite happy to report that this fan works extremely well as it strives to keep our rooms warm. The reason for our decision to purchase and use this fan focused on the defects of our previous fan that worked only intermittently.

Outstanding Appliance
By
Wayne Rogers

May 10, 2009
I would recommend this item to a friend.
The only adjective that one can use to accurately describe this fan is outstanding. Even though it really does not move air in the manner that one would expect a fan to do so, this fan is incredible when it comes to getting the air to move around the room. It is very quiet, and my only real complaint is that it is a bit pricey. If it did not cost as much as it does, I would buy another in a heartbeat.

Needs to Be Bigger
By
Janet Stewart
from Arizonaon
April 14, 2009
I have decided that if I needed to buy it all over again, I would buy a larger fan! Initially I had decided to purchase a fan that would help circulate the air through our cabin in the woods, but I found myself somewhat disappointed with the somewhat marginal effect that this unit had.

If you don’t have a wood burning stove but know someone else who does, you might want to give it to them as a gift. That’s what we did, and our relatives have told us how much they like it and how warm it keeps their house.

My biggest regret is that I did not make the decision to purchase and begin using this product much sooner than I did. Not only is this product noiseless as it circulates air throughout my home but also it is extremely well made. I highly recommend this fan to anyone that is in the market for it.

I’m very happy with this company. Their customer service is great, the price on this fan is great, and the quality of the fan is outstanding. I love the way it works on its own, just spinning away! I could never keep some parts of my home warm enough before with just my wood stove. It’s amazing, but this little guy keeps the whole place warm now by keeping that warm air circulating. What a simple idea to solve a complex problem! My only regret is that I didn’t purchase one a long time ago.

This fan really does what its advertisement describes. It doesn't produce a ton of airflow, but it definitely circulates the heat in the room.
