Is there an efficient way to bring the solar hot air from my second floor to my basement?
I have a saltbox — south facing, well insulated house, 1.5 floors over a full, very well insulated livable basement. In the winter, the solar gain on a sunny day brings temps to the high 80’s on the second floor. Should I try a blower to blow the heat down 2 floors? I heat (usually only in early mornings) with a kerosene Monitor heater on the first floor.
