Yes... and you will also be increasing the "heat" generated at the power plant which serves you and along the wires that carry that electricity to your house... not to mention your slightly elevated body temperature when paying your electric bill. Alternatively, you can use a "passive" technology--by building an enclosure around the stove and, by leaving inlets and outlets at the bottom and top of that enclosure, use the "free" force of rising heat to circulate that heat around the house. When stove makers build such a stove, they market it as a "convection heater." If you take a long, serious look at a steam radiator, you will note many elements of a convection device. Early 20th century heating engineers were not dumb. Most of us are aware of the fact that when we add a fan--especially a large fan--to a stove, we risk upsetting such things as firebox temperatures, stovepipe and chimney temperatures--opening up all sorts of problems we never had before. Not to sound like a Luddite, but... why throw electricity at a problem which can easily be solved by passive means?
