‘If you don’t have one of these, then there is no point in having a wood heater. This is small enough to fit even into smaller spaces but packs a mighty punch with some larger than average blades. I bought this as a gift for friends, and they liked it so much, they bought another.’ Richard D.
Standing at just 12 cm tall, the Cocoon Fan is made for situations where the space available between the wood heater and the mantlepiece is restricted.
The Mini Cocoon Fan operates at a low starting temperature (60°C), which means your living space will be toasty in no time. Simply place the Mini Cocoon Fan on top of your wood heater and feel the warm air distribute further into your room.
Thanks to the new 4-blade design, you won’t feel the breeze, just the warmth—a real plus for improved comfort and warm winter nights.

‘How does this work?‘
Physics! This fan uses an innovative thermoelectric device to generate electricity directly from the heat of the stove to run the fan. The electrical energy is generated from the thermal energy flowing through the device from the bottom (hot) portion of the fan stand to the top (fan-cooled) portion of the stand. But most of all—regardless of how it works—it is effective! For more info, click here.
‘I don’t have a wood heater. Will this work with my pellet, coal, barrel, propane, etc., stove?‘
Yes, it can! The fan works on any surface that gets hot enough to cause it to generate enough energy to power the fan motor. The base of the fan just needs to get to around 60°C to start spinning, though the hotter it gets, the more powerful the fan will be. If you have a grate, insulation, multiple layers on the top surface, it is less likely to be a good option, but you could measure surface temp (e.g., drip a drop of water on it at full temperature to see if it boils would be one easy way) to see if it’s a good solution.
‘How many fans should I get?‘
If you have a large space requiring more circulation power (more than 6 m by 6 m), you might consider getting two fans—though, it is not necessary. About 20% of our customers get 2 fans or more to spread the hot air best.
‘Where is the best place to get highest performance from my Mini Cocoon Fan?’
Place the Mini Cocoon Fan at least 10 cm away from the flue, so that it does not pick up the radiant heat from the flue. This will cause it to run faster, and for a longer time when the fire is low. If you wish to distribute the heat from the flue across the room, point the fan slightly towards the flue so that the moving air picks up the flue heat as well. In our experience, placing the stove fan towards the back of the wood heater, and pointing into the room, works best.
‘Can the Mini Cocoon Fan overheat?’
The Mini Cocoon Fan is equipped with a safety strip in the fan base to prevent it from overheating. However, if the stove gets way too hot, it may overheat the fan and damage the motor. To prevent this, you can get yourself a magnetic stove thermometer to check on the temperature and know when it is getting too hot for your fan. If it gets too hot, you can try moving it to a cooler part of the stove.
‘Do I still need to dry my laundry right in front of the wood heater?’
Not anymore. You can air damp clothes much further away from the wood heater, and they will still dry quickly and evenly.
