Now that my Englander 30-NC is set up the way I want and cooking nicely, I need some input on how to spread the heat around. Here's a rough diagram of the main floor of my 1700 square foot house: Heating the upstairs is optional (and easy, given the preexisting floor vent directly over the stove). Heating the basement is not a concern. That leaves the about-1000 square feet you see above. Currently, the stove room and office stay very warm, the bedroom stays tolerably warm as long as the doors are open, and the living room can fall into uncomfortably cool territory if it's really cold outside. The corner bath is an ice chest and the kitchen stays warm only when the cookstove in there is going. (We have a heat pump to keep things from getting too chilly, especially when the fire dies down at night.) So far I've tried a pedestal fan in the bedroom door, pointing straight at the stove and as far down as I can get it. This helps achieve the airflow outlined above, but I know there's more heat to work with if I could only spread it around more efficiently. Any ideas? I'll be happy to post back with more info as needed.
