    How does the fan actually turn?
    1 Answers
    Ecofans use thermoelectric technology to convert a temperature difference into electricity. At the center of an Ecofan is a unique thermoelectric module. The patented Ecofan design creates a hot side and a cold side on the module and when this happens, a principle called the 8220;Seebeck Effect 8220; causes electrons to flow within the module and electricity is generated to operate the fan.

My basement usually gets to 80 + degrees with the upstairs only reaching the mid 60's, would this fan help circulate the air through the stairwell (the stairwell is 12 feet from the stove)?

    Yes it would help. Any fan you use would help. The best feature of this type of fan is that it does not require electricity to operate.

    I'm very interested in your Ecofans, but I'm not sure which is appropriate for my fireplace (most talk about being for a stove). I moved into a new home with a gas fireplace seemingly retrofitted to the former location of the wood burning fireplace. I lose basically all the heat it generates up the chimney and would like to install a fan. They didn't wire an outlet to the fireplace, but I do have access to the top and bottom louvered "doors." Which fan would you recommend for this application? Should I choose whatever fits or something specific? Thank you.

    1 Answers
    The fan body itself is an aluminum finish and can be wiped down with a damp cotton rag. The set screw should be loosened and the fan blade removed from the motor before cleaning, as to prevent bending the blades. The fan motor can be lubricated with a couple drops of a good machine oil, such as 3-IN-ONE.

    We have a wood burning fireplace insert (Avalon brand) that does not protrude much from the fireplace front face. Is there a particular model of Ecofan that would be likely to work with our heat source?
    1 Answers
    The Ecofans are not recommended for wood inserts. While the blades may turn due to the thermoelectric heat produced by the hot surface of the insert, the lack of space on the insert will not provide enough airflow for the fan to circulate heated air.

    How well will this Caframo Ecofan AirMax 812 heat powered wood stove fan do in an open concept home? It is not only open on the first floor but is open to the second floor as well.
    1 Answers
    The Ecofan will only push heat from the hot surface of a wood stove throughout a room and will not provide any amount of measurable added heat to the entire home. 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. They typically make about a 4-5 degree difference in the space a wood stove is effectively heating.

    1 Answers
    If the surface temperature is between 185 and 650 degrees, the fan will work. Please note that it will not be as effective as it would be when placed on a wood stove next to the stovepipe as is intended. There will not be as much heated airflow for the fan to provide as much of an impact in this configuration, but the blades will turn and it will move heated air. Many of our customers have reported that the fan works just fine in scenarios similar to yours, but this is not a manufacturer's recommendation.

    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.
    13 Answers
    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.
    Kevin E.
    on January 27, 2015
    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.

    Tyler
    on January 27, 2015
    from MD
    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.
    Ric
    on January 27, 2015
    from CA
    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.
    Cathy

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.
    1 Answers
    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.

    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?
    1 Answers
    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.

    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?
    1 Answers
    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.

    Does this model adjust its speed automatically?
    1 Answers
    This fan will gradually ramp up CFM output as the temperature of the stove increases. The fan will begin turning around 185 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.

    1 Answers
    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.

    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?
    1 Answers
    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.

    I have seen various letter combinations after the 812 designation. These obviously signify different models but what are the pros and cons of each?
    1 Answers
    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.

    A Great Conversation Piece That Also Does the Job!
    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.
    ProsElectric 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.

    Worth Every Penny
    Once I purchased the Ecofan, I couldn't wait for it to arrive to see if all I thought it would do was true... Well, let me tell you, it is all that, plus... Not only can you skip worrying about plugging in a fan to move the heated air throughout your home, but it is so much more efficient by allowing the heat to evenly disperse throughout your home using less wood to get the same results that you would receive when burning a much larger fire... I highly, highly would advise anyone who wood-heats their home, as I do, to choose it: one or two, whatever your needs are, as they are very good at fulfilling their claims... Oh, yeah, my home is 2500 square feet, 2 floors, and now I am getting results- even heat throughout it with less wood.

    I purchased the ecofan about mid winter. I heat strictly with wood. I love this little fan. It was great at dispersing the radiant heat throughout my living area. I have three other family members who purchased after seeing mine. I will buy a second one so I can point in two directions for a more even distribution. It worked like a charm all winter. Easy to clean - just took the air hose to it and blew the dust off. No messy fan clean up. If you have a wood stove or even an insert you need one of these - especially when the power goes out - the heat from the stove kept it going with no problem.

    Well made device, works probably as anticipated. It doesn't blow air out like an electric fan, which is sort of weird. The fan is super quiet, which is really nice.

    It Really Works!
    We use the Ecofan AirMax 812 to help spread the heat from our oil burning stove in our house. The stove is pretty much the same as a wood burning stove, but you don't have to keep adding wood once you get it going. The stove is in the corner of a fairly large room with cathedral ceilings. We purchased the Ecofan rather than buy an electric blower. The fan works as advertised; quietly and without using electricity. We purchased it from the eFireplaceStore rather than Amazon as the price was slightly better. In addition, the company sent emails to confirm that it had been shipped "and" checked to make sure that it had arrived. I was impressed with the service.

    Skepical
    I was really skeptical the first couple nights with this fan. I was expecting a blast of air I guess. Other reviewers are right - at our house at least, I doubt this fan would blow a match out from 5 feet away. But... by the third night, I was thinking, wow, this thing really works! First, I messed around with the position on the stove top. I found the sweet spot was angled away from the flue, and pulling from the direction of our sliding glass door where the colder air is. Our upstairs is about 850 sq ft, and it was always really hot in the living room where the stove is, and cold in the bedrooms about 20 feet away. Now the temperature is much more consistent between the bedrooms and living room. It may not be blasting a wind, but it's definitely circulating the air very effectively. We are burning less wood and not fleeing the sauna in the loving room like we used to. I wish we had purchased one of these a long time ago. It's a great product.

    Love everything about this fan!
    Love this fan. We had a smaller model 800 prior and it lasted for 20 years. When deciding to shop for a new fan I chose eFireplaceStore. The selections were clearly labeled and I was able to purchase our new fan without guessing that I was ordering correct product. The fan was shipped immediately and well packaged. The pricing of the fan was the best among the many stores I compared the pricing with. The fan allows our wood insert to really perform well with heating our 2 story home of 1800 square feet.

    Functional and unique
    I saw one of the self powered stove top fans and thought about the purchase for days finally deciding to pull the trigger. Within a week it arrived and to the woodburner it went. The thermometer was reading 300║ when I placed the fan on the top surface. After a minute it started working and quickly and came up to speed. The amount of air this thing moves surprised me. I can stand 4' back and still feel it. I am positive that this gadget is making a positive impact on the efficiency of the stove. Besides that it looks good working away on its own power and is absolutely quiet.

    Fine little device
    I'd seen the Caframo Eco Fans in catalogs (typically at higher prices than I paid through the dFireplace Store), but had not seen one in action till I bought an Air Max 812 for our cabin. It moves a surprising amount of air with only the faintest whoosh of sound. We used to use an electric fan placed near the wood stove, but it was a bit noisy, and would suck smoke out the stove door unless we turned it away to stir or stoke the fire. The Caframo fan sits on top of the stove, and really makes a difference in circulating the air around the room. We liked it so much we bought a second one within a week.
    ProsQuiet, effective, and not bad looking

    AirMax 812: Great product, modest improvement
    We notice a modest improvement in how the heat from our woodstove is transmitted into our open, vaulted-ceiling living room. The fan looks great and works nicely; nearly silent, too. We're glad to have it, although it doesn't move quite as much air as I'd thought it would.

    Amazing Fan
    This little fan is unbelievable. The amount of warmed air it distributes from the top of my wood stove has made a big difference in the comfort of my log home. The stove has a designed electric fan system attached on the back to distribute the warm air to the room but it is not very efficient. In addition to that it is noisy. This little fan moves so much more warm air without a sound, and by creating it's own electricity to power it. I highly recommend this fan to anyone using a wood stove.

    Surprisingly light weight but efficient
    4 pounds shipping weight! Last time I looked for one of these they weighed 15# or more. Works great, but I didn't find anywhere in the description or specs that the MFG does not want the item to be exposed to more than 650 degrees F. Our stove can get over 1000 degrees F, so we're experimenting with risers under the unit so we don't damage it. We have found that keeping just 1/4 inch air space under the unit keeps the temp well below the 650 mark, and it still works as expected. If this info had been included in the online description / specs, I might not have purchased this model, holding out for one that could sit directly on the stove. Outside this one minor issue, the fan works great. Our forced air heater runs about 50% less once we get the hot air from the stove moving around. Bottom line - worth the sale price. If I had paid the full price, I probably would have returned it.
    Prossilent operation, moves hot air efficiently, small footprint. the blade does not spin with enough force to hurt a person if they accidentally get in the way. Has a lifting handle on top for easy re positioning, even if the item is hot, and it weighs less than 4 pounds.
    Consfan blade does not have any sort of guard, careless persons can accidentally get arm or finger impacted by blade. Online info did not tell me that the unit could be damaged if exposed to more than 650 degrees F

    Amazing product
    We put this fan on a wood stove we just installed in the basement. The fan began to spin as the stove heated up and was going full tilt within 30 minutes. We use it to blow warm air from the wood stove toward the air intake for our heat pump. At 29 degrees outdoor temperature the arrangement was so effective we were able to heat the entire ground floor of our big home to 72 degrees using just the fan on the heat pump. We live on a farm so wood is free. Highly desirable situation. PS: The fact the fan is totally silent is a wonderful bonus.

    I came across the Ecofan on the internet and decided to give it a try.
    The theory behind the Ecofan seemed logical and the price was right. It came a few days later, and I built a fire in my small Vermont Castings Resolute stove. In the past the area around the stove was always too warm and the end of my combined living room - dining room cool. Now that problem has been solved. The Ecofan is a handsome piece of metal too. So I'm greatly pleased.

    Remarkable increase in heat distribution
    We are overall very happy with our EcoFan, We have a large woodstove in the living room of our cabin and the rooms at the end of the hall from it get cold. We positioned the fan to blow over the top of the stove toward the hallway (stove is just to right of door to hallway) and the end room eventually gets about 8-10 degrees warmer. As the stove is next to the cabin's thermostat, the back rooms get no heat when the stove is on, so this is a big help. The lack of a fifth star really has more to do with our situation than the fan itself. So far it has greatly helped improve the heat distribution in our cabin.

    Does the Job
    I hate noise and had already tossed out the back shield blower fan. Had searched for a quiet fan to blow heated air thru the bedroom door 10 ft away. Thought this fan was a big risk but approaching 300f it will waft a hot breeze about 12ft. I'd hold a 2' strip of TP in the doorway and the lower tip would sway a couple of inches, as well as heat felt in the bedroom. As a bonus it's great to judge when to add wood or adjust the dampener by the rate its' spinning. Silent to me. Might assign 5 star yet have owned only a month.

    Caframo Ecofan AirMax 812 Powered Wood Stove Fan
    We have had this fan for about a month, it does a very good job of circulating the air. We set it on top of the wood stove, when the stove starts building up heat, the EcoFan starts running. This helps a lot because we don't have to run the fans on the stove which run continuously since they aren't thermostatically controlled. So with the EcoFan it saves a lot on electricity. Would recommend this fan.

    What a lifesaver!
    I recently purchased another Ecofon as a gift for my daughter & son-in-law. Two days later a wind storm knocked out power at her house for three days. By putting the Ecofon on the warmer plate on her fireplace, she was able to heat her house and keep the family safe and warm. The same storm knocked out power at my 1800 square foot home for four days. I have a free standing gas fireplace with a micro thermostat so I was able to have heat. The Ecofon allowed me to heat my entire home. What a difference. Before when the power went out we huddled around the fireplace. Now we have circulating heat! Fantastic!
    ProsThis has become a "must have item" for cold weather power outages.
    ConsNone!

    Works quite well, actually!
    I initially bought this with a fair degree of skepticism. Man am I glad to be proven wrong. I just tried it out last night for the first time. A little pricey but does exactly as advertised and looks neat as heck to boot. What more could you ask for; it's nearly silent, it pushes a goodly amount of air across the top of the stove and even though the breeze is very soft it moves enough air to really even out the heat in the room. Best of all it uses a passive heat engine and the energy of the heat transfer from the stovetop to the cooling fins to generate the current to power it, so no batteries, power cords or energy use! A+ Thinking about getting a second one, just 'cuz it would look cooler with two and move even more air. Note, put it on the edge/side of the stove blowing across it for maximum efficiency, not in the middle.
    Prosefficient, almost silent.
    Consa little spendy, but should last nearly forever.

    Although it does work somewhat it lacks the airflow I thought it would have. I can't feel any flow while putting my hand or face in front of the unit. Not sure it is helping any. Thought it would supplement the side airflow that my stove built in fan does not. It appears it does not.

It took awhile to heat the air enough to start the fan, but once it did the room felt warmer, and the difference from the side of the woodstove without the fan which was hot behind the stove, and with the fan, cooler behind the stove and warmer in front of the fan was obvious!!! We are naw considering one for the other side of the woodstove!!!! It's also FUN to watch!!!!

    Pleasantly surprised at how effective it works
    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!
    ProsNo electricity. No maintenance (other than occasional dusting)
    ConsHonestly, 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
    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.
    ProsEssentially silent, self-powered, unobtrusive, cool gadget.

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.

    use with a coal stove
    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.
    Prosno 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
    Consfan 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

    ecofan 812 airmax for wood stove
    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.

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.

    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.

    Nice Addition
    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 !
    ProsLong Lasting Reliable Works as advertised Little kids' curiosity about the blades turning won't hurt them.....the blades stop readily when touched.

    Great fan!
    I purchased this fan the other month for a wood burning stove. This is an amazing product. Once it heats up a bit, the fan turns on automatically and it moves the warm air around the room VERY nicely. You can definitely feel the difference when using the fan.
    ProsGreat price for an awesome product
    ConsNone. Hoping this product lasts for many more years.

    What a great idea this is! This little fan runs so efficiently and produces no noise at all. I also love that you can stop it with your hand--no worries about cutting off a finger. I'm thinking of getting a couple more!
    ProsPushes air in whatever direction you point it. No noise. No danger of cutting your fingers off.

    We love this fan. It does exactly what it says it'll do. It forces the hot air from the stove into the room. No electricity!
    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.
    ProsWonderful 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.

    Good product.
    It's easy to use, and does it's job well. I'm pleased to have bought it. The price and promptness of delivery were very good, too.
    ProsIt'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.
    ConsI bought two of these fans. One seems to get "stuck" occasionally after slowing down, and needs a push to start again.

    Works As Advertised!
    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.

Your website was very informative there was enough information about each model that I didn't need help ordering. 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. We noticed how much further the heat travels with this little fan. It seems to be well made. Could be a little cheaper but all in all we like it a lot so far. I do recommend.

    Who needs electricity!!
    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.
    ProsWorks 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.
    ConsI 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!

    Ecofan 812 - just keeps getting better
    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.

    Caframo Ecofan Airmax 812 rules
    Loving it! See comments under Pros tab
    ProsAt 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.
    ConsReally 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.

It was well packed and just as ordered. The fan has worked just as noted on the web page and has made a big difference in the area we occupy.

    Great Little Fan!
    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!!

    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.
    ProsQuiet, no electrical cords, no energy requirements. Only operates when there is sufficient heat in the stove so it doesn't move cool air.

    very helpful fan
    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 !!

    Ecofan 812
    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.

    Compare to another brand product I had before, this fan starts spinning at lower temperature and seems to move more air. This is a well designed and I'm satisfied with this purchase.

    Ecofan
    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....
    ProsDirects 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
    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!

    Cool Tech
    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.
    ProsWell made and a cool-looking design Does actually move some air No wires Large Wow factor, runs on heat!
    ConsExpensive 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"
    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!

    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!

    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.

    Makes a Big Difference
    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.

    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.

    Awesome!
    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!

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.

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.

    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.

    Heat Power
    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
    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.

    This fan has done a spectacular job of getting the air to circulate throughout our kitchen. What is particularly impressive is that it sits at the back of the stove and in a very short time frame begins to start blowing, moving the heat throughout the room.

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!

    Environmentally Friendly
    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
    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.

    Good Fan and Maintenance Tips
    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
    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 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.

    Works Anywhere on Hot Stove Top
    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.

    Wife Likes It
    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.

    Extremely Useful
    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 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
    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
    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
    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.

    Makes Room Comfortable

    Love It

    Very Quiet
    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
    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.áI 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.

    Gave to Friend
    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.

    Ideal Present
    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
    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
    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.

    No Electricity
    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

    Disperses Heat
    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.

    Top Notch Product
    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
    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.
    By Janet Stewart from Arizona on April 14, 2009
    Needs to Be Bigger
    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.

    Purchased as a Gift
    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.

    Well Designed
    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.

    Should Have Bought This Years Ago
    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.

    As Advertised
    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.
