My name is Garrett P. edmands abd I am working on a turn of 20ieth century home of a friend of mine in Western Mass, in the Berkshire mountains.
This home has three floors,built in 1910, is colonial post and beam with a limestone basement floor where the kitchen and dinign room and living room are situated.
My problem is that it is freezing down here. We have a propane gas forced hot air furnace, always on right now, and I have moved some heating terminals to the floor instead of where they were first placed, at the ceiling.
This has not helped too much.
I understand that if you heat the stone, like those russian kacholofen soapstone stoves, then the heat will rise and the whole house will glow with the pleasantry of a warm house!!.
What system could I ue to heat this stone mass during the winter months and have it becost efficient and then just maintain the heat of the stone once it's heated up to a degree.
I would love to hear some solutions.
