I need to reintroduce some moistrure into the air of my home. We live in a very dry climate in Utah and right now it is reaching temperatures below zero at night. Growing up and at our cabin we use those cast iron kettles. Is there anything better, cooler, awesomer? Also, I have an old PRE-EPA stove with no blower. Would a small fan positioned behined the stove assist in moving warm air throughout my house and help it move upstairs where it is really needed? If so, do you have any recommendations on a fan? Something that uses low watts and has a very slow setting would be nice. I do have a quite a bit of clearence behind the stove but getting one that is not prone to melting (ie: heat resistent) would be wise.
