Warpfive Fans design and manufacture a full range of Stirling engine stove fans for use across a variety of applications. View our full range of exclusive stove top fans, plus use the quick guide below to help choose the best stove fan for you.
Stirling engine stove fans have a high power output and low start up speed. For this reason they move large volumes of warm air. Simply place your Stirling engine stove fan on top of your log burner or multi-fuel stove – operation is entirely free. In fact you will heat your room up much faster and you will save money by reducing the amount of fuel you use.
Quick Guide – How to Choose a Stove Fan
- Firstly you need to establish your average stove top surface temperature. The heat on your stove surface will power your Stirling engine. Stirling engines are fueled by heat, so the more heat that enters the base of the engine – the faster it will run and the greater the volume of air moved.
- Once you’ve established your average stove top temperature, examine the start up temperatures for each of the Warpfive Stove Fans. Also think about where you will use your stove fan. For instance if it is a very large room, the Twinspeed will be the best choice. However if your stove surface is Soapstone or if you feed your fire irregularly, the Glasshopper is an ideal choice. Smaller spaces are best suited to the Sidewinder which has an overall height of 225mm (8.8 inches). The Steelhead is a classic style which suits most applications.
- If you don’t have a stove top thermometer – place a drop of water on the surface. If it bubbles away instantly you’ll know it is above 100 C (212 F).
