What is the average temp. in your basement?
is your basement insulated?k
is your stove centrally located or at 1 end?
..... roughly where did you put your vents?... and are they just cut into the floor now to use as gravity feed?
... do you have a stairwell down into your basement?.... and if you do-..... do you leave the door open or closed?
... every house is different... and what works for someone else may not work for you... but that stove should be more than adequate for your home...100,000 btu ?
... now it is just a matter of getting the heated air up into your living space efficiently... and you are definitely at the right site...f. there are a lot of guys on this forum that can help you out... and even save you some time.... and eliminate guess work for you.... but a little more info would be helpful
....and lightning is right... let's just hope Fred does'nt read this thread
