Has anyone here played with thermoelectric power or even seen it in use? I recently bought one of those wood stove fans that’s powered by the heat of the stove. It not only works but it works better than I thought it would. I’m not saying it makes a big difference in the way the stove heats the room because it doesn’t make a big change. But it impresses me in the fact that it takes heat from the stove and using the difference between the stove temp and the air temp it makes electricity to power the fan. Which has me wondering if all of us using woodstoves for heat in the winter aren’t missing some free power. Why couldn’t we be making some useful power from that heat?
