What is the difference in btuh output between the starting temp of the stove and when it drops 25 Deg?
I get about 324 btuh less, while the stack is putting out about 20btuh less to the atmosphere.
The stove ? I have no idea. I didn't check the entire stove's surface area, or it's internal temps. However, the surface temp of the two plates directly in front of that small fan dropped, as I said, about 25 degrees.
Within fifteen minutes, the room was measurable warmer with just a small fan blowing across just that part of the top of the stove.
And, within a short time, the test points returned to the same non-fan temps when I shut the fan off to cook my lunch.
Now, . . . where's your test results ?
Well, it was a trick question.
You replaced radiant energy with conductive energy, and managed to convect it around the room in a different pattern than you had before.
The gain appears to be dropping the stack temp 3 degrees, which nets about 20btuh.
