We have heated our house entirely with wood for ten years now. We have a Hearthstone, freestanding fireplace that is awesome. Everything the company says about soapstone radiant heat is true. I digress, for ten years, we have threatened, or, intended to buy one of those EcoFan units we drooled over in the Lehman's catalog. We homestead as lightly as we can, if get my meaning. So this fan was always something that we felt would fit and serve its purpose.
There is one thing that will fool you, as it did me. You put your hand in front of it while it is spinning and you can't really feel the air move. This is deceiving, as I said, it moves a lot of air. All in all, we love this fan and find ourselves wondering why it took us ten years to get one. I'm not kidding, every year I would say, I'm going to buy one of those fans then never did. We are glad we finally made the plunge.
