Our house is a 1918 colonial with a gas fired steam system. There are 4 bedrooms upstairs with a radiator in each room, and 3 rooms downstairs with 3 radiators and the thermostat. I get that heat rises, and we have more radiators upstairs, but there is often a 5-10 degree difference in temperature of the two floors. Any suggestions on how we can lower the heat upstairs, or move the hot air downstairs?
I've turned all the steam valves to their lowest setting (even turned one radiator off). I've thought about a cealing fan at the top of our stairs, but the landing/hallway is small (3 feet wide) so we would need a very short blade, but if it was small enough to fit the space, would it actually have enough "power" to help move the hot air down the stairway?
Other ideas welcome!
