More and more people have log burners nowadays and with winter just around the corner this is a must have, to enable you to spread that warmth around your home.....It can't be beaten at this price.

Starts this Sunday (25th Sept)

With an optimal working temperature of 205°C-345°C (230-650F)

Stove Fan is designed to be used on the top of a freestanding wood stove.

It helps to cut energy costs by dispersing heat around the room, using your stove's own heat as its energy source.

This maximises the efficiency of your stove so the room is warmer and means you use less fuel.

Dimensions: 21 x 24 x12cm

Material: Aluminium

Product Type: Tools & Equipment

Temperature Range: 205 - 345 degrees

Weight: 1kg

And they never need any batteries

They should also come with the Aldi 3 year warranty

For the price absolute bargain. But they ain't no Caframo...

Do they make much noise?

They are virtually silent, but need to be positioned carefully for optimum effect - to the rear and side of the stove top, so check you have enough headroom. This is an excellent price for one of these.

I have one identical to this and they make a big difference our log burner is in an enclosed space and once this starts spinning it helps push the heat out into the room. We have a thermostat in the room and the before and after temps were greatly improved. After 20 mins a very large open plan room was very comfortable. Worth it at this price as when looking they were £50 and upwards. Silent or I can't here any noise and work by the heated air flow....

Would these work on top of a normal radiator?

good find op, heat added

Good find.I wonder what make these are,as they are not a common product.

Winter is coming....

The pictures and description look identical to the Galleon Fireplaces fan on Amazon for £29.99. Seems to be well rated at 4.6 stars on 711 reviews.

Evidence for this comment?

We only have a 17cm gap at the top of our stove, I'd love to get one of these, but the really small fans are way too expensive.

Completely ill-informed. My woodburner is so efficient it's approved for use in a smokeless zone. Given how "the grid" produces heat a woodburner is probably the greenest form of heating available.

terry_dactyl- only if you use a cheap Chinese imported stove that has not been tested and approved by defra! my defra approved 5KW Hillandale Silverdale is a good quality stove (complimented by my defra fitter) and is 82% efficient (again tested by defra) so, I cannot see how your comments can possibly be true!

Doubt it. There needs to be a heat differential between the base and the heatsink on the top - thats why they are recommended to be placed at the back of the stove where cooler air can be drawn over the fins.

The two blade fan is better according to reviews.These are only £5 cheaper than Amazon.I think i will wait for the two blade option on Amazon.Might try it if its reduced in Aldi after a couple weeks of no sale.

He's probably talking about local air quality with regard to particulate emissions compared to burning natural gas.

Because mine is also 82% efficient, and approved, and because I've looked up the statistics for distribution inefficiencies (ie energy losses) of (predominantly) fossil-fuel sourced grid energy. But let's not burden this otherwise good thread with such dull detail, eh?

Not disagreeing with you regarding quality but I can confirm that stove is imported from China. Its a blooming good stove though!

Burning wood is carbon neutral, sustainable and modern setups are very efficient and clean.

That "clean" electricity from the grid mainly comes from non renewable fossil fuels.
I'd be far more worried about diesel vehicles then I would wood burners.

Phatboy you clearly know nothing keep hugging those trees before us stove owners burn them all Hee Hee

my 2 pevex log burners carbon neutral 70 to 80 efficiency.
smokeless rated defra rated . keeps damp from blocked up chimneys. and renewable fuel resources.

gezz someone needs to check there facts.

Really? Depends what you mean by green.
You are correct that total thermal efficiency for fossil generating plant is lower, remembering of course that the end goal is to produce electricity not heat.
However, coal is burned at high combustion temps and the flue gas is treated to remove particulates and sulphur dioxide.
Natural gas burns cleanly anyway, no sulphur or particulates.

Burning wood at low temperatures in an oxygen-poor environment, then releasing the exhaust untreated generates lots of fine particulates.
It is certainly potentially carbon neutral and sustainable, but that doesn't automatically make it good for local air quality.

Elsewhere in the world, wood burning is starting to come under scrutiny - control measures have been taken in Tasmania for example:
"From 2001 to 2004, the number of households that used wood-burning stoves fell from 66 to 30 per cent. Atmospheric pollution from air particulates during winter fell by 40 per cent.

Deaths among men fell by 11.4 per cent, particularly from cardiovascular causes, which saw a decline of 17.9 per cent, and from respiratory causes, which retreated by 22.8 per cent."

​It's not your burner that's carbon neutral but your wood.

I don't give a damn if you burn wood, coal or gas to warm your cockles but most people say 'carbon neutral' as a term they've picked up without having a clue what it means.

All points well made and well taken. I should have said "potentially", not "probably". Only thing to add is that burning natural gas is releasing the carbon that was taken out of our atmosphere millions of years ago when the earth was the greenhouse it is becoming again, whereas the carbon released by the average woodburner was only taken out a few years ago, hence "potentially greener". All very difficult equations, but all worth thinking through.

Oh yes, the issue is very complicated. Change one thing and some other problem always pops up!
Ideally we would not need fossil fuels, but I don't think we're there yet.
For better or for worse, the low cost of natural gas heating will keep it dominant for some time I think and on balance I will still take it over solid fuel burning.
Looking to the future, perhaps ground-source heat pumps combined with solar will become more popular, expensive to install though.

Utter nonsense


It is not nonsense, although this poster delivered his point in a somewhat surly style.

Remember that solid fuel burning in the UK fell out of favour many years ago with the rise of cheap and convenient gas heating so many of us don't know what it was like.

In other parts of the world wood burning is/was still widespread and has come under scrutiny in recent years as pollution from other sources has been more tightly controlled - Denmark, Tasmania some regions of the US - within the last 15 years or so are starting to realise wood burning is not the harmless thing everybody assumed it was - high levels of fine particulates emitted which stay stay close to the ground, especially in winter.

Don't get me wrong, I like a merry blaze as much as the next man, love having a wood burner in a holiday cottage, but I'll be sticking to gas in my own home.
