Fan Improves Air Flow On Wood Burning Stove
I installed a wood burning stove at one end of my house. Half of the house was warm but the back half stayed cool. Heat would tend to “pool” near the ceiling. I tried turning on the fan in my forced air furnace but that didn’t help. Finally, I took a 12-volt cooling fan out of an old computer and hooked it to an old 12-volt power pack from a telephone. I put the fan at the top corner of the doorway leading to the back half of the house. I could immediately feel the fan pushing the warm air back. The little fan warmed the whole back part of the house. The cost? Almost nothing. (Jerry Brandt, La Grange, Mo., ph 573 655-2260; jbrandt000@centurytel.net)
