Improved charcoal stoves are known to generally develop high thermal efficiencies, but most generate appreciable level of gas emissions which has made them unsuitable for use within residential buildings. In order to eliminate this constraint, a supplemental air supply power pack was introduced to improve charcoal stove thermal and aesthetic performance. This paper described the experimental setup, test procedures and results showing optimized performance. Comparison between performance characteristics shows the air aspirated stove and other improved charcoal stove showed more than 20% increased efficiency, power input of 2.26 kW (0.691Kw/hr) and overall thermal efficiency of 36.74% for the improved stove, the stove is thermally efficient more than the traditional stove.
