      Kent,

      If your furnace intake in the basement is the only one, or is at least
      significantly larger than any others, pulling the air back from this warm
      basement room has a good chance of working. As Rod said though, the air
      temperature from the supplys will seem cool if the furnace isn't running as
      the supply temperature will be much lower than the normal 120 deg. F or so.
      As a trial, if there are other intakes in the house, a piece of newspaper
      temporarily set over the return grille can do for a trial (with the furnace
      fan running) and give you a chance to evaluate air and temperature
      distribution.

        Kent,
        Best treatment of this subject is in Jay Shelton's Wood Heat Safety and Solid Fuel Encyclopedia Out of print, but www.powells.com can usually get them for under 10 bucks each. Explains circulation or lack thereof of heat and air in structures, and accounts for site conditions and other anomalies.
