    Well here is version number 1 of my home made door fan, an old (from a dead computer) 12 v muffin fan and a simple over the door hook, if it works I will look into some bigger fans and make my own mounting bracket

    Sometimes the simplest answer is the best. I was looking into using a 110v muffin fan, but I knew my wife would be upset if I put holes in the wall/trim. I didn't think of the over the door bracket. Let us know how it does please. Thanks.

    It is in a room with 2 doors, one fan blowing in (down low) one out (the muffin up high) as I said it is from an old dead computer so I have no idea on size/ model.

    Nice job on the bracket!
    That is a good idea to use with the fan below.
    I don't have any old fans kicking around.
    We are still in the planning stage!
    May have to do 4 rooms. Not cold enough yet to know.

    Has anyone seen these?? 120 CFM
    Price is comparable to a new computer fan but will require holes in the door frame or use the bracket design above!!.

    I have two 105 cfm fans. They haven't failed me yet and as sawdustburners stated, blow the cold air towards the stove.

    Yes, I would buy them again. They're pretty much quiet and increase the heat in my hard to get to rooms.

    I used to have that type of fan. It's sounds like you have a Cessna in your living room, very, very LOUD!

    Thanks for the info!
    Looks like computer fans might be the way to go.

    If you dont want to drill holes use some of that sticky velcro, and remove itin the off season. Thats what I am using. The magic sponge removes any residue left from the sticky side.
