According to the power source, stove fans can be divided into 2 categories: electric powered stove fan and self-powered (heat powered) stove fan.
Now, most stove fans are powered by heat, but some fans remain electric design. The heat powered wood stove fan is environmentally friendly. There is a motor at the base of the stove fan. The motor runs by the heat difference between the base and the top of the fan.
For example, the motor of Signstek’s best wood stove fan is imported from Japan. It runs more smoothly and makes almost no noise. There won’t be any additional costs.
Number of blades
