So How Does It Work?

You're probably now wondering how a heat powered stove fan works right? The motor which turns the blade is powered by a Thermoelectric Cooler (TEC), which operates according to the Peltier Effect. The Peltier Effect is the presence of heating or cooling at an electrical junction of two different conductors. When a current is made to flow through a junction between two conductors, A and B, heat may be generated or removed at the junction. Once the Peltier energy is generated, this then supplies power to the motor causing the blades to rotate.
