Hello, I am Melissa from NorthlineExpress here to give you some tips to help circulate heat around your home. Whether you use your wood stove or fireplace as supplemental heat or as a main heat source there are benefits to moving the warm air produced to other areas of your home. Wood stoves provide some of the best heat available. Other types of heating systems go on and off all day. The house warms, cools off and warms up again, over and over. But if you keep wood in a wood stove it stays on, constantly maintaining the heat. There are some considerations for circulating heat through a home which we will go over today.
If you have a small home open floor plan you probably do not struggle with circulating heat from your wood stove. However if you have multiple floors or a ranch style home you know the struggle. You sweat in the room that has your wood stove in it while all the other rooms are not as cozy. The concept of moving heat is simple and can be done by moving air. If air currents were visible, you would see cool air sweeping across the floor towards the wood stove and then rising in a big plume towards the ceiling. So, if you want to circulate heat to somewhere else, the best place to take it from is at ceiling level somewhere in the room where the stove is and you do not need to take it from directly above the stove.
The first type of room to room fan I would like to introduce you to will be the Comfort Geni Fans. These fans are installed in your wall or installed in existing registers helping to balance the temperatures from room to room or level to level. They have neutral and attractive finishes that blend well into any decor and fits flush to the wall, floor or ceiling. This register booster fan improves the comfort of the room for both heating and cooling, for just pennies a day. The library-quiet DC fans are much quieter and cost less to operate, plus they last longer than those with AC motors. We offer two models; the ComfortGeni 6XR Fan and the ComfortGeni 4X Fan. Both the ComfortGeni 6XR & 4XR Fans feature a built-in programmable temperature sensors with automatic ON/OFF allowing operation only when source temperatures produced benefit your needs. This is nice so that you are not wasting energy moving cool air around. ComfortGeniTM is ready for use as a booster fan right out of the box: simply mount it in place of an existing air register grill and plug it in. It also can be built into a wall for room to room direct flow.
If you do not want to do structural work, you could also install one of the small doorway fans. Our most popular door way fan is the Super Quiet Fan. This circulating fan has such low motor noise, it is hardly noticeable! This is ideal for mounting in a doorway to circulate heat quickly to adjoining rooms. The bracket allows air-flow to be directed for ideal heating efficiency and even distribution. The Super Quiet Fan is a great a great option for eliminating “hot spots” near stoves and ceilings.
If you are a wood burner, you know how much wonderful warmth and comfort a wood stove brings to a room. The products that we talked about today let you move the warmth to other rooms and levels, making the whole house toasty. The more you distribute the warmth, the more energy and money you save!
