    Hi guys

    Our radiator in the living room is behind the sofa and there is no choice in this so it’s heat gets trapped. I have read about a fan thingy-me-bob that draws air through the rad and out the top. There are some on Amazon and it gets decent reviews but isn’t cheap.

    So, i wondered if i could build my own with USB pc fans but was concerned with them melting. Also how to power them such as if i need a transformer. Lastly, how best to build the case so it wouldn’t block the rest of the heat by using thick wood and how to create a scoop at the top to come out over the sofa.

    Any thoughts guys?

    Cheers, Marc
