anyone have any ideas (or have done) to get the hot air from the blower to upstairs, and it needs to look ok bacause it in my finished basement. last year (burning wood) I used the rectangular part of a floor register and some metal dryer vent and put the rectangular part in front of stove and the other end at a hole I cut thru the ceiling. does anyone make somethin gthat can go on the front of the stove?

Read through my "projects index" link below. There are several pages, which deal with that.

Warm air wants to rise upstairs & colder air wants to come down into your basement. Just provide as many ways for it to get its way as you can! :lol: (floor vents, open stairways, cold air returns.... etc)

Take a look on the 'Venting, Chimneys, etc forum, there are dozens of threads on the topic of distributing heated air.
