A basement is a cube, if 4 sides and the floor is insulated the heat will rise, and go to cold. Insulated walls will block the circulation, room to room fans may help move the heat. The floor above the stove will be warm as long as there isn't insulation there. A stairwell may help with return air as well as heat movement. There are many variables here and many questions. What kind of stove or furnace or boiler is a keystoker 85000?

I have a 40 x 28 basement, not insulated. My stove is in the basement and blows into my warm air plenum. The radiant heat keeps my basement at 60* furthest from the stove and 70* in the general area. The floors above are warm because there is no obstuctions in the basement and the stove runs 24/7. As long as you can get the heat to the different rooms you should be able to heat the floors.

Does the Keystoker have a jacket that you can hook duct work to?
