How can I increase the efficiency of my wood stove?
Researchers from the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Waterloo and Caframo collaborated on a scientific study aimed at measuring the reduction of Ventil'Home.
The team developed a protocol and procedures to measure, evaluate and verify the effectiveness of eco-friendly fans in reducing the amount of fuel used. Conducted under controlled conditions, the tests were designed to maintain a human comfort level of 22.5°C (72.5°F).
The test setup was designed as a room within a room. The interior room resembled a living room with a wood stove, sofa, finished floors, ceilings and walls; and the exterior room was set up to control the exterior temperature, modeling the heat loss of a typical house. Made in winter 2010, Ecofan.
