About this deal

This stove fan is pretty quiet and won’t distract you whilst watching TV, reading a book or chatting with someone.

Valiant Premium 4 Stove Fan - Cheapest Online - Debrett Fires

It’s the best model I found with this feature. I like the high-temperature tolerance of this stove fan (340°C) and the clamp itself can withstand up to 400°C. It starts running at low temperatures and the fans operate virtually silently. The Voda 6 Blades Heat Powered Stove Fan may be equipped with six blades but it’s just as quiet as the single three-bladed models. Many stove users consider the four-blade models the best choice for large rooms, but this 6-bladed stove fan takes performance to the next level: it distributes 6 cubic metres of air per minute. When compared with a three-blade circulation device, the 6 Blades Stove Fan increases heat distribution by 90%. There’s a general agreement amongst online reviewers that this model puts out more power than a three-blade model but there is some disagreement as to whether it is as powerful as a four-blade fan, which has larger blades. This is why I still think the 4 blade model I use is probably better. Strong magnetic clamp that attaches to the stove’s flue pipe so you don’t need to have a stove with a flat top. Stove fans are designed to create a gentle airflow around the room so that the room will feel more evenly heated instead of being hot near the fire and colder the further away you move.As with the other fans I reviewed, this VonHaus model is self-powered and doesn’t require any batteries or electricity. Instead, a thermoelectric power generator module works with the heat from the stove to generate an electric current to start the fan’s motor. The stove fan works automatically between 50°C and 350°C.

Stove Fan – Valiant Premium 4’ - Chilli Penguin ‘Stove Fan – Valiant Premium 4’ - Chilli Penguin

Had been researching stove fans for a while, but didn’t jump at buying until I could find one that would fit our stove. This is very compact, and possibly one of the smallest (according to Valiant) on the market right now. Out of the box, there is nothing to set up, just pop it on the stove, and within a few minutes, it will start to spin. If you have not yet got one, I would suggest getting a stove thermometer. The fan itself is not totally quiet, you will hear a whirring noise, especially as it speeds up, but its not annoying. There is a bi-metal device on the bottom to prevent it from overheating, should the surface temperature get too hot. It works by literally lifting the fan up off the hot surface, but I would remove it if the safety device cuts in. Does it work? I think it does. At first, we thought its not pushing out much heat, but it works on movement of air – convection, rather than a force blow like a fan heater. The stove might appear cooler, but the room is definitely warmer, I would say by up to 30% more. For us, that is a huge difference. The optimum effect is reached around 200 – 250 degrees C, but it works at much lower temps. The unit is fairly robust, the fan is well made, if anything the unit could be a little on the light side, but its so compact, this will fit on any stove. Its also something of a talking point, as its a mystery to some how it works. With no batteries! 2 year warranty, which is good, and I think, we’ll be putting less wood on the stove, and that’s what really matters.Both the blades and base of this stove fan are constructed from premium anodised aluminium, making the fan highly resistant to rust and corrosion. The fan begins to operate when the base reaches 65°C. The optimum operating range is a respectable 85°C to 350°C. The six-blade design provides impressively high power, offering twice the power of regular three-blade stove fans. I started testing stove fans around 6 years ago and in that time have been able to test quite a few of the best stove fans at varying price ranges. At first, I thought they weren’t much difference between them. However, after trying a few different models for longer periods of time it became clear that they do in fact make a difference, some more than others and it all comes down to the design of the blades.
