Hello everyone. I saw a post in the last week or 3, about moving heat around the house, and it got me thinking about my own situation. My house is around 36' long by 28' wide (around 1000 sq feet), with an open unfinished basement (ICF foundation), and a stairwell leading up to the main living area in the middle of the house. I run a Drolet Austral (2014). In order to move warm air upstairs to the main living area, I took all of the gyprock off the walls at the base of the stairwell, including that around the transom of the door, in order to open up the stairwell and facilitate warm airflow up through the stairwell. I recall using toilet paper strips in various spots around the bottom of the stairwell so I could visually watch and see if there was indeed air movement. I also placed a small fan at the top of the stairwell that pointed directly down the the stairs, following the angle of the stairs as closely as possible, in order to move cooler air from the upstairs living area down into the warm basement, thus creating a nice thermal convection loop that warms up the main living area quite nicely. I always leave our whole house heat pump set for 20° Celsius, and when running the stove like this it boosts the upstairs temp to around 22°C and warms up the floors, which we find very comfortable. I've posted some pictures and a couple of short videos to document the process. I hope this might help someone, by showing how a small change in technique can have some grand effects.
