Can I use my electric furnace fan to move heat from my wood stove?
I have a 2000 SF home (approx 1000 foot each level, lower is "daylight" meaning one side is underground on the lower level and one side of the lower level is entirely open). I have two Blaze King wood stoves (catalytic converters) on each level but my thermostat for my furnance is on the main level. If I use my wood stove upstairs I don't heat my downstairs (where all my water piipes are) and if I use my downstairs wood stove it won't heat the upper part of the house.
My question is, can I use my downstairs wood stove and run the fan only on my electric furnance (which is also downstairs and fairly near the wood stove) to heat my entire house? Pros and cons?
