Kitchen Floor Cold - Heating crawl space underneath?
New to the discussion but need some advice:
I live in an old farmhouse that had been upgraded and added on. Majority of the field stone basement has heating ducts from the furnace and is about the same temperature as the rest of the house. About 1/3 of the basement is a crawl space, and in the far SW corner of the house there is a very tight crawl area that leads to a pit that drops about 10-15 ft (not sure what the purpose of it is). This area is not heated and is directly below the SW corner of our kitchen. The kitchen floor in this corner is very cold in the winter. Our dishwasher is in this corner of the house and the lines will literally freeze up on a cold night. There is some insulation underneath the floor but this “pit” gets very little heat from the rest of the basement. Could I just put a fan in the entrance of this area to blow some heat from the rest of the basement into it? This area is barely accessible so I have no clue how to check the seals, vents, and such.
