    Yep...... One last question. Did you use another large register instead of the little slit register they provide? Out of the 3 pics, I dont see the "little" one?

    Would probably provide better airflow with a bigger one.

    Just had to ask.

    Pay attention its the sixth pic in the first post :exclaim:

    Here it is again anyway, and a pic of where the stat will be.

    I did use the little one, they call it a diffuser and you can feel air flow out of it. Not sure you would with a bigger one.

    The diffuser is mounted up high in the cavity, thats just a shelf you see under it.

    I'm gonna leave it run all night and see where its at in the am.

    Well, the overnight results are its not effective in my situation I actually had better success with a muffin fan mounted in the upper corner of the doorway.

    I'll still hookup the stat and now I'm thinking of mounting the muffin fan behind the register I added above the door, pushing warm air in.

    The temperature differential this morning was 6-7 degrees from one side of the door to the other.

    With only the muffin fan it was more like 1 degree, but I didn't care for the look and the fact the door had to stay open.

    Just ordered the AS1.

    Here's to hoping it works.

    Can you feel the air coming out of the diffuser?

    What would you compare the noise level to?

    The through the wall fans I have (Broan 512) work great. 90 CFM, but they are noisy. Not as bad as the Corner fans were. But still to much for the babies room.

    Noise level is excellent IMO.

    Decent air flow out of the diffuser.

    I'm really suprised it doesn't work better.

    Only thing I can think of is the incoming warm air is 25' from the stove.

    But the corner mounted muffin fan worked good in that location and thats only 50 cfm.

    Nice.... With some tinkering, I'm sure you can get better results. Trial and Error, is the greatest way to learn.

    I will let you know my results when I get it installed.

    Thanks for the link and putting up with my million questions.

    I have a level to level fan for sale if anyone is interested. Bought it to move air but it would not work in my situation. New in box, never hooked up, PM if interested.

    Yep, when I get time I'll try mounting the muffin fan behind the empty register and see what happens.

    Well, I got the smoke show patented rubber mounted muffin fan setup pushing air into the room and the AireShare pulling air out of the room.

    I think you could fly a kite in there. :lol:

    I'll let the stove run overnight and check temp differential in the AM.

    Nice... Your something like an engineer.

    J/K..... Looks good buddy. You should get much better results. Looking forward to the a.m........

    Mostly reverse engineer stuff.

    3 degree diff this morn, 71 in stove room 68 in finished room.

    It def lowered the temp in the stove room, normally it would be 75ish in there.

    Yankee engineering to us New Englanders. Pops was a farmer he called it "ham and egger"! :)

    Nice change you are seeing, Do you also have an air return somewhere?

    Just checked Amazon. Its out for delivery today. Hope to install it tomorrow.
    Just gonna put mine on a standard switch.

    Glad to see your getting better results. Muffin fan did the trick.

    Thanks again for the link..........

    The muffin fans pushin and the aireshare is pullin. If that makes sense?

    Ham and egger? Redneck engineering here. :lol:

    Sure does, Better flow if you have balance. If your just pushing air in to a room it will only take so much. It will basically dead head to a certain pressure. I think they call that static. Add a vent/return to reduce pressure and you get better flow. What you did is add a forced air return so you should have no/nada static pressure build up.

    Not sure I got all this techy terms right, Just a hack mechanic who likes ham and eggs! ;-) Dang, Now I'm hungry again!

    Just came in 30 minutes ago. I was starting to doubt the tracking on UPS....

    Well. It looks well made. After looking it over, I see now how its a "directional" fan. Both the blower and the difuser have to go in a certain way (depending on the configuration / high blower low diffuser, or low blower high diffuser)

    Got a lot to do tomorrow, but gonna try and make time.

    Just realized I have a little work to do tomorow also.

    Checked the tracking on the stat and it said delivered, sure enough it was on the front porch.

    This won't take too long and I'll try and hurry. :lol:

    The Lux LV3 thermostat is installed and functional.

    I turned the muffin fan off this morning to see if the room would maintain temp and it started to drop almost immediately.

    So in conclusion the Aireshare was not enough on its own in my situation.

    Now if Dexter would hurry so we can hear/see his results. ;-)
