No longer will you have to stoke your stove to blazing hot temperatures only to end up with a VERY hot area in the direct proximity of your stove and mildly warm air across the room. The Whisper will help uniformly circulate the air, leaving you a cozy, comfortable atmosphere to enjoy while reducing the amount of fuel your appliance consumes. In addition, the Whisper costs you absolutely nothing to operate!
No batteries or plugs are needed! The Whisper's power comes from a small Stirling-cycle powerplant (also known as a sterling engine) that uses only the heat radiated from your appliance for fuel. What is a "Stirling-cycle" or sterling engine powerplant? The Stirling-cycle powerplant derives its power from very rapidly heating and cooling the same volume of air - almost like a steam engine, but without the water or steam. When the air is heated, it expands, pushing a piston outward; when the same volume of air is rapidly cooled, it contracts, pulling the same piston inward, providing the power needed to turn the blades.
For wood stoves with a temperature between 190°F (minimum requirement) and 390°F, the Whisper circulates up to 200-300 cfm (cubic feet per minute) of air. The Whisper's fan speed increases relative to the temperature increase of its heat source. So, the hotter your stove, the faster the Whisper will run and the higher the volume of air circulated.
The Whisper is an ideal air circulation fan for gas & soapstone woodstoves & pellet stoves that do not generate as much surface heat. Lodges, cabins, & winter resorts will appreciate the silent benefits of using a Whisper to optimize their heating systems.
The Whisper is designed to be maintenance-free under normal conditions.
