- Stove fans…. The ones that go round and round
Having knocked out kitchen through into the snug the (8kw) stove is now at one end of a 19m room.Posted 9 months ago
Will a stove fan help persuade the heat to move down the room or not really.
We got given one, seems to really help even out the room temperature.Posted 9 months ago
i have them, i reckon they help get heat out of a fireplace but the draft does move air far, 19m? doubt it would make much difference but try a cheap one. I have a cheap one and a valiant, they look identical and the heap one shifts noticeably more air, so I’d say get a £25 cheapy.Posted 9 months ago
Researched to the end of the earth – high end and low end options. I ended up buying a cheapo Aldi job for £20 whilst perusing the aisle of dreams.
Definitely makes a difference and worth the money; not sure what more expenditure would get me. Gratuitous photo of a nearly-normal living room 🙂

We bought a £15 Amazon one and using it for the second time tonight.
I’m far too hot, I have no idea if that’s because the fan has done its job or if I built the fire too big.
Edit: I’m going to aim in the other way tomorrow and see if I’m colder.Posted 9 months ago
Yup make a difference not sure in a room that size but worth a punt, el cheapo here too.Posted 9 months ago
Got one a couple of weeks ago.
Made a huge difference to the whole downstairs of the house. Quite surprising.
And a bit of heat is now going upstairs too.
It will certainly make a difference for you.
We got an expensive one. Didn’t know you could get em for 20 quid. Will get a cheapy for the kitchen stove.Posted 9 months ago
Aldi have a cheap one in the Isle of Shite from Thursday.
And yes, they do make a difference.Posted 9 months ago
Another Aldi one here, not seen them on there for a while though.
it looks like valiant may have realise the right price for these is £20, not £100. This looks a good deal
or this is a good deal too
The stove I got is a convection stove, didn’t notice any improvement of hot air flow with addition of a fan (Aldi Wtf aisle)Posted 9 months ago
I bought two of the Aldi fans this week and they are noticeably better than our Ecofan.Posted 9 months ago
Our fan certainly seems to help shift the warmth about. Can’t offer objective evidence for that, mind ewe.Posted 9 months ago
I bought another this week, the Aldi one for £16 I think
Seems as well made as the £20 one I bought a while ago and might work a little better (faster spinning for the same temperature & starts at a lower temp)
I would definitely get anotherPosted 9 months ago
Could one of these be used to push hot air out of a doorway into another room? Kitchen gets too hot and would be useful to spread the heat to another room.Posted 9 months ago
Yes if they are pointed the right way.
Depends on the distance involved – more of a push than a blow.Posted 9 months ago
A very much more effective way to move heat a long way around a house is to use an electric fan. Put it in the cold area and set it up to blow the cold (and denser) air toward the warm room/stove. It will displace the warm air and push that out toward the cold spot.Posted 9 months ago
