Stove-Top Blower Heats Up Room Fast
“Most blowers mount at the bottom of the stove,” says inventor Andrew Tjernlund of Tjernlund products. “This fan heats air at the top of the stove and blows it straight out into the room.”
The back of the unit extends about 4 in. behind the stove’s heat shield and has vents on the bottom and back to pull in air. An efficient 20-watt blower moves air through the housing, which sits flat on top of the stove. A moveable chute on the front end allows hot air to be directed 45 degrees to either side.
“The low decibel motor on the blower is used in many of our products,” Tjernlund says. “You can leave it on at full speed and it’s not loud. It’s 50 percent quieter than most blower fans.”
It also uses very little electricity and is easy to install. You just clip it in place and plug it in. A toggle switch turns the fan on and off.
Tjernlund sells the Hot Shot™ for $150. The company also sells a heat shield kit ($60) for woodstove models that don’t have heat shields on back.
