The little furnace in our basement.. Our basement was really cold in the winter. My computer and other hobbies are all in the basement. After being down there for an hour or more I would get very cold. Even with dressing very warm my hands would get very cold at the keyboard. So we decided to add a small high efficeincy furnace to our basement. After running it a few days we found that it does not run near as much as we thought it would. I guess it had to warm the floor and walls up some. We also noticed that our main furnace only runs a third as what it did before. I guess all the heat in the basement is rising and keeping the rest of the house warmer than it used ot be. I am very glad we did this. I can now spend hours in the basement in a Tshirt and still be comfortable.
