    Cant see it working somehow.
    All it will do is draw air over the heat exchanger faster stopping it warming up as much.
    You may get a faster airflow, but it will be cooler air.

    But there will be more of it, air that is. The energy from the heater can't get lost so a fan will give the same heating effect, it just might be better at distributing the heat around the MH.

    2CV owners often use computer fans in the cabin heating ducts to assist the airflow and apparently it works very well.
