Obviously, it's just a fan—but the fact that it can be installed in the corner of a doorframe means that it will be out of the way—unless you are tall with poor eyesight and mistake it for a really thick cobweb. [Improvements Catalog via Red Ferret]

My parents have one of these. They have a wood-burning stove in the family room that is connected to the rest of the house by a 36" doorway leading to the kitchen.

This fan does very little to heat the kitchen with the heat in the family room. The family room often reaches 75-80 degrees with the stove buring full blast. The kitchen will remain a "warm" 58 degrees with the little fan working its heart out.
