High Ceiling


I have a high ceiling and most of my heat from my furnace is up there and down below where we walk and sit around is little cooler. What can I do in the way of simple solution? I could turn the ceiling fan on, but it will run even when my furnace is not running. That will cool the living space and we don't want that especially during winter time.

thanks in advance,

A ceiling fan is the best bet. The heat is still there and rising even when the furnace is not on. Or put the fan on a timed control or a thermostatic control located near the ceiling.
