Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Daddio Wonderful product
I installed this unit a couple of weeks a go, when it was really cold out side. Since the install to my oil fired furnace, my basement temp has risen 10 degrees from a usual hi 40's low 50's. It is now in the hi 50's low 60's. This has made the living quarters more comfortable (especially on the feet).
When I think of all the years we just blew that recoverable heat out to the squirrels. The only thing I had to do to the unit was to change out the temperature switch from 180 deg on, to a 100 deg on, and 80 deg off. Otherwise it would rarely turn on, for a furnace any way. I don't know how well it would work on a wood stove, but it seems to me it would be worth a try. I am satisfied.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Skeeter JUst what I was looking for.
Swapped this unit in while replacing my old stove pipe. After taking all the measurements I needed, I laid it out on the floor and screwed it together. Popped in on the first try. This helps keep my shop nice in warm in the winter.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by steven buy a majic heat instead
poor quality ...magic heat will produce twice as much heat and is only 50 dollars more...i bought this reclaimer 4 months ago and it already blew the thermostat and just had to reorder one ...20 dollars for the thermostat is reasonable but 20 to ship it was insane for such a small and light part...oh and the fan flew off the spindle on the motor and made alot of noise and im just lucky i was there when it happened to stop it quick so it didnt damage anything ...i have a magic heat in my house and the miracle heat in my shop and majic heat is 10 years old with no problems and much more effiecent ...my house is 1800 sq ft and the shop is only 650 sq ft

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TJ1950 works well but needs more maintenance then described
I have used this product now for 2 burning seasons. It works very well in recovering heat and spreading it around. Do not allow the pipe to get red hot where the thermostat is as this will damage it. Replacement is cheap and easy if you do.
The major problem is that is to effecient in pulling heat from the stove pipe. This cause the creosite to condense on the air flow ducts. If you do no clean this regularly, it will plug up the stove pipe. A chimney sweep tool will not work. You have to remove the unit and clean the inside with wire brushs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by boiler miracle heat blower
The miracle heat blower was easy to install. It is functioning okay. It does not seem to have the air flow volume that the magic heat, which it replaced, had.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Muddyfeets Works amazingly well!
Can't believe how much heat this unit moves! It was fairly easy to install, but difficult to get exactly squared to the chimney so it looks a bit odd. I did need to find a way to keep the power cord away from the hot stove as nothing was included to do that. The thermostat is quite sensitive, will kick it on and off frequently when the fire burns low. Motor is much quieter than I anticipated. Only had it for a month, but so far it's an excellent value for the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oregon Works REALLY WELL
I love this thing the only Problem I encountered was getting it turned in the right direction so that it would blow the heat into the den. The directions as to where to put the 2 drops of 20 weight oil could be just a little bit more clear as well but other than that it's great. And the best part is that it's thermostat controlled ( the thermostat is in the blower itself)
