    I have a chance to buy out some inventory on Magic Heat chimney heat extractors.
    Is this still a hot item in the cold weather, or are the new wood stove designs eliminating this item as popular?
    Any advice would be appreciated before I invest.

    Are you asking from a business or personal use standpoint. If they are cheap to buy, I suspect there always will be a market for them in the winter on eBay, etc. There are lots of old stoves still in use.

    This would be to try to resell them.
    I would have to take over 50.

    I think that sort of technology has been more or less discredited. Creates creosote and/or ruins draft. That's not saying anything about their marketability, however.

    I believe this question has been explored many times here. This kind of contraption, by nature, reduces flue temperatures. Robbing Peter to pay Paul.

    Aye. That's why I only asked about the selling. No endorsement for the product.

    They would be okay for a coal (Anthracite) because of coals clean burning. On the other hand coal can have stack temps so low you can hold your hand on the flue. Now wood i can see it clogging if you're not using a EPA equivelent stove. Lower temps, lower drafts, creasote haven. Kinda the same thing for electric dryers that gets the heat from the vents on the dryer. A small box fan near the stove would be better.
