Blower Choices


Standard - 1/15 Horse Power Blower

Standard Blower
465 cfm

JUCA's Standard blower is much stronger than the 60 cfm or 100 cfm or 200 cfm blowers which are used in many competing woodburners. Interestingly enough, many of those products don't emphasize how small their blowers are!

This JUCA blower does an excellent job of moving the air around in an open area up to about 800 square feet of living area. The air will often come out at about 120F-150F (about the temperature of warm to hot water).

It usually should NOT be used when feeding warm air into a duct system, since it isn't designed to PUSH hard enough to move all the air in the ducts at the same time. There IS a way where the Standard blower can be used to get air TO the blower in a conventional furnace, for IT to do most of the work, but this kind of installation should only be done by knowledgeable installers.

115 watts, 2.9 amps, Shaded-Pole, 1530 rpm motor
(9.75"w by 9.87"h by 8.75"d)

It extends 9" out the back of free-standing JUCAs.






Medium - 1/6 Horse Power Blower

915 cfm

This is the smallest blower you should use if you're going to feed a duct system (unless you intend to use the power of your existing furnace blower to do most of the work).

It is also a nice upgrade for non-ducted applications in spreading the heat out more aggressively. If you have 600-1000 square feet of open space, consider this choice. The air will often come out of the JUCA at 110F-120F (about like warm water). It extends 13" in back of free-standing JUCAs.

This blower is commonly used in conventional gas and oil furnaces. (Its appearance is very similar to the LARGE Blower below.)

5.8 amp Shaded-Pole motor, 1050 rpm
(10.37"w by 12.75"h by 12.5"d)

Mid - 1/4 Horse Power Blower

1240 cfm

This is the newer, high-efficiency version of the Medium blower. It uses less electricity but moves more air than its predecessor Medium (above).

The air will often come out of the JUCA at about 110F. It extends 15" in back of free-standing JUCAs.

This blower is commonly used in conventional gas and oil furnaces. (Its appearance is very similar to the LARGE Blower below.)

Usually used for installations where some of the heat will be sent into a house duct system.

3.9 amp PSC High-efficiency motor, 1050 rpm
(9.25"w by 15.5"h by 15"d)






Large - 1/4 Horse Power Blower

Large Blower
1460 cfm

This is about as large a blower as we normally recommend unless the house is unusually large (say over 2500 square feet) or really spread out like a sprawling ranch where the ducts might have to move the air a hundred feet. The air will often come out of the JUCA at about 110F.

Only for installations where most of the heat will be sent into a house duct system.

It extends 15" in back of free-standing JUCAs.

This blower is commonly used in conventional gas and oil furnaces.
