Introduction: Computer Fan Heater
In the winter time my house is cold.
In my house we have a gas fireplace, because we do not like running the heater and it saves money and the environment.
What i have noticed was the gas fireplace doesn't spread the heat around the room.
So i made a fan system out of a couple dead computer fans.
Step 1: What I Did
What i did.
I took a three computer fans and hooked them up to a 12v converter, then i set them up so they would
push the hot air out of our gas log fireplace saving us money, and reducing my carbon foot print.
Step 2: Materials
What you need!
3 or 2 computer fans ( i used 3)
1 12v converter
Step 3: The Fans
If your computer fan has three wires coming out then cut off the yellow wire and keep the red and black wires.
Then use a wire tie and connect and the wires together with the extra wire, then attach it to your 12v converter
Step 4: Seting Them Up
When you have them all wired up and working you can set them up in your fireplace
But first make sure you know which way the air blows out
