    I have successfully been a member for 3 days and this is my 3 post... not to shabby lol. Anyways, now that i got the feel on how to run my insert effieciently. (Thanks to everyones advice on my previous posts.) I am onto the next problem.

    My kitchen has a vaulted ceiling (starts at about 7 ft and goes up to about 15 ft. , which has three light fixtures but no ceiling fan. I am getting good flow of warm air into the kitchen but i thermomet on the kithcen table.

    Would it be more effective to replace one of the hanging light fixtures with a celing fan and run it in revers to get that air moving?

    I am going to do a test tonight to see what the temp difference is from the top to bottom.

    Thoughts, suggestions???

    I'm betting if you replaced a light with a ceiling fan like you said, that would make a big difference!
