Canadian Product Blows Away the Competition to Win Innovation Award
The Caframo Ecofan GS gas stove fan was awarded a prestigious Vesta award at the North American Hearth Industry Expo held at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center in Reno, Nevada on March 15-17. The Vesta Award for Hearth Accessories recognizes innovation in technology and product design.
Caframo accepted the award for the Ecofan? GS for gas stoves, the newest addition to the line of revolutionary fans that create their own electricity to circulate the warm air from wood and gas stoves throughout a room. By distributing the stove's heat more evenly, the Ecofan GS allows homeowners to feel warmer and recognize fuel savings.
The Ecofan concept was conceived 10 years ago by local inventor Randy Reid who teamed up with Caframo to manufacture these unique Canadian products. All Caframo Ecofans use thermoelectric technology to convert the surface heat of wood and gas stoves into electricity that is then used to power a fan to increase the comfort level of the user by moving warm air throughout a room.
An engineering breakthrough allows the award winning Ecofan GS to operate at much lower temperatures than the original Ecofans that were designed for use on wood burning stoves. The Ecofan GS is ideal for propane or natural gas stoves with surface temperatures that range from 150°F (65°C) to 300°F (150°C).
"For years consumers have been asking us for an Ecofan that would work on their gas stove and we're proud to finally be able to provide a product that can deliver that luxury" said Tony Solecki, President of Caframo, "It's extremely satisfying to see the efforts of our small company recognized on a world wide stage."
Today, Ecofans are enjoyed by consumers throughout North America as well as in the UK, France, Germany, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Japan and New Zealand.
Caframo was founded in 1955 to manufacture innovative fans and heaters for a variety of retail markets. Located on the shores of Georgian Bay in Wiarton, Ontario, Canada, Caframo is a privately owned company focused on innovation and consumer comfort. Other Caframo products include Ecofans for wood stoves, various home and office fans, the True North AC Heater, and industry recognized 12 and 24V marine fans.
