Continuous forced hot air fan

I heard of a fan that can be put into a forced hot air system that will continuously circulate air throughout the house. Rumor has it that this fan uses as much energy as a light bulb.

Has anyone heard of this? I am interested because I have a wood stove and would like to use the heating system to try and spread that warm air around the house.

Well yes and no. Your thermostat should have a switch that says fan on, im pretty sure thats what you heard about because they do not pull many amps, between 1 and 5 amps usually, and thats the same motor that pushes the air out of the furnace

The ones that do not use as much energy are variable speed or ecm motors.
