The house has an upgraded HVAC system with a return vent in the basement. However, the basement is open concept to the upstairs. I imagine it would be naturally colder but what can I do to take the edge off and ensure my wife and child will go down there in the colder months? I was thinking of installing a thermostatically controlled fireplace. http://www.electricfireplacescanada.ca/ ... gIIWPD_BwE
What are all your thoughts?
