Circulating Wood/Pellet Heat

Posted by xndman (My Page) on

Greetings all. I live in a 1500 sq ft rancher with a fireplace on a wall about 1/3 the way along the house. The fireplace faces the remaining 2/3 of the house where there's an open living, dining room and kitchen. The "master" bedroom is located on this side of the house. My problem is that behind the fireplace wall are the two bedrooms for my kids. There's only a hallway entrace (located about two feet to the left of the fireplace) to access the two rooms and hallway in between. Is there any way to circulate warm air behind the insert and into the bedrooms? The ceilings are not high and we have no ceiling fans in the area. Any thoughts?

RE: Circulating Wood/Pellet Heat

There's a fan that can mount very easily in the corner of your doorway. It will blow the warm air into the kids room. I have used it for years for heating and a/c. The fan is called "entreeair" fan. It's only about a 6 inch fan. You can get them everywhere online.This fan will allow you to get the warm air to them,plus walk in and out of you rooms with ease. Also think about getting a circular vent. They are in every Lowe's and Home Depot location. Good luck.
