But, as you said, floor level not up + 11 degrees. Take a temp. reading 6" off floor and see. You have kids, where they going to be...on floor, maybe.
You going the 'air circuit' route? It will take some more force to do air circiut than that small fan.
If yes, I am just trying to show you where you will be disappointed before you get there...but go a head if you must.
To clarify a bit because I'm all over the place.. my goal is to properly try to circulate the air with what I have going on.. It would be nice to open the basement door, because essentially I would be heating my basement and helping my upstairs too... instead of separating them.. and I"m trying to figure the best way to do this. Right now if I open my door to circulate I feel that it will just make the basement colder and all the heat coming out of the ceiling will just roll up stairs. I could turn my blower up, but then it become obnoxiously loud.. that thing can push A LOT of air on high, but it sounds like a jet plane. And the basement is for the kids.. I have my TV mounted and a living room set down there, but the other 70% has a ball pit, slide, power wheels, play mat, etc.. and the kids are pretty much on the floor. So right now I'm thinking that if I can get the heat to exit at floor level, and open the door.. that it might be a good solution for me. A ceiling fan would be nice, but I don't think I could set one up properly without going through a lot of hassle.
Here is my current plan:
1st.. I have a weird stand up sphere like fan that has all sorts of settings.. I'm gonna try to put that on circulate and see if it helps or hurts...
2nd.. if fan hurts, I will then look for a way to get heat to exit from floor and not the ceiling and open the door upstairs...
3rd.. if all else fails.. maybe find some type of ceiling fan that I could easily put up, or learn to live with down there.
I know someone said about putting another stoker/powervent downstairs, but I really don't wanna burn double the coal and double my work. Plus the only exit point would be under my deck, and I don't wanna be out in the hot tub breathing in exhaust.
