Hard to move the heat unless you put an insulated body around the stove to capture the heat and feed it to where you want it to go. I have found that it's easier to grab the cold air off the floor and make it go to the stove. Some kind of cold air return. If you can put a return trunk line in from the basement to the stove, a direct line, it will serve your purpose the best. I have a Vaulted A-Frame with a 40 foot ceiling. two ceiling fans that drop down 6 feet from the very top both going in reverse in the middle setting not the fastest but the next one down, when set at the fastest setting the fans wobble way to much because the ceiling doesn't allow the same pressure of air all the way around. I have a trunk line from the floor of the basement that feeds right into the stove with a fan inside the duct. You get rid of the cold and no matter what your gonna be warm. Cold air is easier to move also.
