The Caframo Ecofan 810 UltrAir and 812 AirMax are heat powered fans designed to circulate the warm air created by a wood-stove operating with normal surface temperatures of between 85°C and 345°C. These fans do not use batteries or mains power.
Increased Efficiency: Warm air is circulated directly into the living area rather than having most of the stove's heat rise immediately to the ceiling, thereby increasing the heating efficiency of your stove.

Fuel Savings: Testing carried out in collaboration with a leading Canadian university has proven that using an Ecofan® results in fuel savings of up to 18%. For more information click here.
'No Fuss' Operation: The Ecofan® starts automatically and adjusts its speed with the stove temperature. As the stove heats up, the Ecofan® runs faster to move more warm air into the room. As the stove burns down and cools, the Ecofan® automatically shuts off.
Costs Nothing to Operate: Using the heat from the stove, the Ecofan® is the most economical way to effectively circulate warm air. No cables, plugs or batteries are required.
Unique Blade Design - Safe and Efficient: The unique Ecofan® blade is designed to deliver a broad cross section of gentle warm air movement to avoid uncomfortable drafts. The blade is our most efficient blade yet, moving more air at a wider range of stove temperatures.
Complies with IEC 60335-2-80 safety standards.
For Optimum Performance of your Ecofan®: Placement of your Ecofan® on your stove top is critical. Be sure to position the Ecofan® on the stove so that cool air will be drawn over the 'cooling fins'. The Ecofan® should not be used directly in front of the stovepipe or at the front of the stove. Place the Ecofan® at the back edge of the stove as shown in the diagram.
See the enclosed user manual for further tips on positioning the
Ecofan® on your stove.
