Ok I know this has been talked about before but never saw what people had for results . So here's my idea . I'm gonna run a vent from behined my pellet stove at the highest point close to the ceiling . It will be a 12-15 foot run ending at the basement floor with a fan pulling the air down ( fan will be on the basement end ) I have an open stairwell that will be used as they return . It will be going into an insulated 400 sq ft guest room in the basement . The room stays 60 all the time just want to come up about 6-8 degrees . For the last 2 days I had a fan at the top of the stairs blowing down and the room got up to 65 and stayed there so I think this might work . Moving the stove is not an option ! I do have a secound heat source ( electric ) not gonna even go there . I just think to myself I've already got the heat I just need to get it where I want it . I know this goes all against the laws of physics but it seems to work in my little experiment . Let me know what you think ? All venting will be out of site ( I found a chase in the wall ) boss would kill me if I had something riged up on the wall !
