Thanks Fred. I built the house (80% myself and with a good friend) 27 years ago.
At first the temp. in the living room was much too high.Others parts of the house: bathrooms, small living room, basement were much colder and needed some electric baseboards heating. That is the reason why I made a faux-foyer or cage to keep the heat inside of it then the warm air is send in the basement , then sent in all the entire house. Less expensive than the electric baseboards and much more confortable than before.
Works fine since more than 20 Yrs. One of the biggest problem for the heat transfert in my house was that the stove is in the livingroom and I had to send heat down in the basement for my small office. Even more confortable in all seasons. Plus the air is filtered, sterilized, humidified if needed.
