As talked about in a previous post, these heaters really benefit from using a fan to spread the heat around. My initial attempt using an ancient rule fan that I repaired I deemed was too noisy, so I ordered an EcoFan.
This sits on top of the heater and generates electricity from the heat of the furnace. It finally arrived yesterday and I tried it out – works well! It’s only a matter of time before I accidentally catch part of myself in the spinning blades though.
