We have a woodstove in the family room and with a small fan we can heat most of the rooms on that floor, but the family room gets very hot. I would like to connect a vent or fan to heat the upstairs also. Could I use a simple bathroom exhaust fan to send the hot air out of the family room and upstairs to the kid's room although there is no room directly above the family room?

Do you run your fan on your heating and A/C. That would circulate the air in your house without adding anything. Just an idea.

There is a hook up for the air intake of the furnace (on the other wood stove) and I tried to intake the hot air of the wood stove and use the fan of the furnace to circulate the air, I even blocked the other air intakes but that didn't work very well.
I am using just a small desk top fan in the family room, but I'd like to add an air exhaust unit in the family room.

I have a woodburner in my basement. I installed a vent in the floor that has a built in fan. It's a little loud on high, not too bad on low. It moves a decent amount of air and was fairly easy to install. It came as a whole kit at true value. I did consider a bathroom type fan. I think it would work, but the airflow rate is considerably smaller on these types of fans.

I have a wood stove in my family room with the fan on the back. My ceiling consists of accoustic tiles. In eack of the Bedrooms that a just above the family room I installed floor grilles and I put a wall grille in the tile on the ceiling. The warm air from my stove travells up to each bed room very efficiently.
