Anyone using eco fans on their wood stoves?

Thinking about getting one.

We don't have one yet.  I've checked them out on home woodstoves and seems like the cats meow.

Coastal has several models going on their stoves in show room. Seem like they work well.

They work surprisingly well.  The guy in the corner opposite the stove should pay for it! 😂

I picked up a couple of these for the home insert.  Been very happy with them.

I don't know enough about the fans to know if the Amazon $35 versions are the same or worse than the 90-150 dollar ones costal has.

Eco fans work nice, they work off a thermoelectric pad between the top side (cooler) and bottom side (hot side) the heat differential from the base to the top part of the fan generates a small charge and spins the fan once the woodstove hits 150+ degrees, so the base must have good flat contact with the hot stove top.

1 fan doesn't move a lot of air, but better than no fan.  Helps dry stuff faster hanging near the woodstove. 

Worth it IMO

I'll second the Eco fan in the alaknak tent as it seems to get more condensation.   This definitely keeps the corners circulating better so that you don't get wet walls.

I have long maintained that you have never truly been cold until you had to snuggle with another dude. LOL

Back on topic though, those fans are really nice. For $35 and no additional cost it was money well spent and it certainly helped dry our wet gear.

In a effort to make things a little easier in my senior years, I got one of. These for each of my wall tents.

It holds the stove all the ropes, stakes, angles, ground cloth and extras. Just roll it up the trailer ramp and go.

There is a tray not pictured inside to hold small stuff. You can set the tray in the handle .
