If this winter, you are going to be using a wood burning stove or a free standing fireplace to heat all or part of your home, try this tip.
We also put another fan to blow the cold air from the back of the house into the hot room to help circulate the warm air throughout

We tried placing a cyclone/wind machine type fan in several positions for maximum air circulation because there just wasn't enough room to put it behind our wood stove (plus I worried that the fan might actually overheat,) but ultimately, since hot air rises, we wound up suspending the fan about six inches from the ceiling. No fan overheating, and because it could pivot, we could adjust the direction of the airflow. We kept it on the low setting the whole time. We were very pleased with how well it worked. We used an older than 2001 fan (not on the recall list,) and although we no longer have that wood stove, with just a little cleaning, the fan works just as well as ever.
