A Great Conversation Piece That Also Does the Job!
December 10, 2013
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 like this fan. I don't think it is as efficient as an electric fan for the stove, but it does move the air and is very quiet. We wanted one because we don't like the noise of a fan and because if the power goes out it will continue to work.

Caframo Ecofan Airmax 812 with Gold Blades
March 28, 2014
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
February 26, 2014
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.

Air Max 812 Fan Circulates Heated Air Magnificantly!
February 21, 2014
The fan works very well. I have a stove & set the fan on the corner of the stove as I also have a cast iron pot with water in the stove to add humidity. Out of the box, on the stove & about 1 1/2 hrs later, the fan was moving quickly!
Pros:
Small enough to sit near the corner of the stove, but it can move the heat into the room!

The "Little Fan that Could"
February 19, 2014
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!

Nice Addition
February 19, 2014
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

Really Moves Air!
January 11, 2014
I am so happy with this purchase. I wish I would have bought one years ago. It really moves the air around. I used to have trouble heating the bedrooms of my cabin, all the heat stayed close to stove, but now the bedrooms are nice and toasty. Money we'll spent especially because I am not using excessive amounts of wood to kind of heat the whole cabin. This fans a must for wood stove users!

Excellent Low Cost Hot Air Distribution
January 11, 2014
The Ecofan AirMax 812 was purchased as a 2013 X-mas gift for my son-in-law. He heats a large 4 bedroom home in Maine with wood. The Ecofan has made a huge improvement to the problem of distributing the heat that used to stay mostly near the wood stove. With the Ecofan he reports his family is now enjoying the benefits of wood heat quicker and using less cord wood to maintain warmth.

Makes a Big Difference
January 8, 2014
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

Fan Works as Described (MAGIC)
January 8, 2014
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.

This fan is quiet and works well with my stove. It doesn't move a lot of air but I didn't want a lot of ash blowing into my room so this works well. I use it at night to move air to the back part of the house when sleeping and since it doesn't need electricity, that's a bonus.

I bought this to replace a previous model, in case I was unable to repair it. I was indeed able to replace the motor in the old one, so I had a side by side comparison. There is in fact no comparison. The chief use of the old one was to see at a glance whether the woodstove needed more wood. This one moves so much air it is amazing.

moves lots of air

January 1, 2014
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
Cons:
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.

Fascinating
December 29, 2013
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.

Quiet and Small
December 26, 2013
This fan is small and quiet. That's the best part. I read reviews on the product before I purchased it. Some said it moved air wonderfully while others said it didn't hardly work at all. 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

Doesn't move air as much as I would like

Heat Power
December 12, 2013
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.

Warms up the downstairs
December 12, 2013
I was expecting a little more heat from this ...or maybe just hoping for a little more direct heat I guess. However, that being said...it does work very well at warming the downstairs of my house...we have it placed on top of our wood burning stove and it gets the thermostat up to 70 degrees after a few hours...that is a definite plus.

November 4, 2013
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.

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. We not only save money on our heating fuel bill, but also the electric to run the fan. We highly recommend this fan.

Good Fan and Maintenance Tips
October 4, 2013
Iíve had this fan for a couple of years now and have been really happy with it. I did some ďdo-it-yourselfĒ maintenance on it recently, and I thought I would share that with others. If youíve had your fan for a while and it wonít 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 (itís silver) thatís on one side. Then put some silicone grease on it. Then put it back together again. Hopefully youíll have the same experience I hadóthe fan works like new again!

Lasts a Long Time
September 4, 2013
I don't know why I've spent so much money over the years buying electric fans to help move my wood burning stove's heat throughout the house. They wear out fast no matter how much money you spend on them, and they're noisy and really don't do a very good job. This self-starting fan solves all those problems. It's a great fan. I guess you could say I'm a fan of this fan!

Needs to Be Bigger

Very Quiet
July 20, 2013
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 Great

We used to have a problem when heating with our wood stoveómaybe youíve had the same problem.

I canít believe how this one little fan has changed all that, helping the heat be distributed more evenly throughout the house.

The room I have my stove in is about 170 square feet, and Iíve found in the past that when I run electric fans, hoping to circulate the heat, they actually make me feel colder!

Cooler Near the Stove, Warmer Elsewhere
April 3, 2013
If you have a wood stove or fireplace, you know that one of the problems is you can be pretty nigh scorched when youíre 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 hadnít thought of the fact that it also keeps the air around the stove moving, so it feels bearable there. If youíre thinking that you could save money by buying an electric fan to move the heated air around, take it from meóI learned the hard way. That just doesnít workóit costs money, and the air cools down as itís blown around. This fan works great, no noise, you donít have to turn it off and onÖ.

Pros and Cons
December 17, 2012
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 doesnít do that. I like the fact that it isnít 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 itís supposed to do, helping to circulate the heat throughout the area. But Iíve found that no matter how hot the stove gets, I have to physically push the blades to start it movingóit doesnít just start rotating on its own. And it wonít 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 donít want to sound too negative, though. The product does what the manufacturer says it will do. I may buy a second oneóI think the two together would move as much air as my electric blower does.

Environmentally Friendly
December 7, 2012
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.

I'm a Big Fan of This Little Fan
October 5, 2010
What a great idea. What a great product. We live in northern New England where itís 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 didnít work that well. And they used extra electricity, and they were noisy. Iím 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 wonít believe how well it works. Oh, and hereís a tipówhen youíre using it, also set a pan of water near the stove to add moisture to the air.

Great in Keeping Home Warm
April 22, 2010
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 is better than any electric fan. Before I got this fan I had an electric one that would turn on and off automatically.

By the way, I read some peopleís comments that claim you have to put the fan in some exact spot on the stove top or it wonít work. Well, I didnít 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.

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.

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 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 Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on January 14, 2013

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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 150įF, but require no more than approximately 250įF 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.

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 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 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 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 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.

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

Answer:

I have a Franklin Stove, which does not get as hot on the top surface as an airtight wood stove....therefore which model would be best for my Franklin stove, the Airmax 812, or the model made for gas stoves ?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on February 6, 2012

Answer:
That all depends on the surface temperature of your stove. The Ecofans for wood stoves can be used on stoves with surfaces that do not exceed 650įF (345įC). The Ecofan GS is specifically designed for use on gas stoves or stoves with a surface temperature between 150įF (65įC) and 300įF.

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.
