That is awesome, i like how it heats the floor.
I plan on using my 10 ASICs to heat my home this winter and hope to help off set some costs of mining. 
I'm building a 7'x4'3' cabinet and will pump the hot air out of the hot side and into the living space of the house from the garage.

Nothing really new here. Folks have been using them to replace/supplement cold weather heating needs for years. I have 5kw of miners running at home keeping the basement at 85F even in winter. The heat comes through floor taking care of the rest of the house. Only when it gets to below 10F outside do I need the furnace to run so in winter now the miners not only earn enough to more than pay for their feeding but in fact earn even more because rarely does the furnace run. As reference, pre-mining days it typically cost me around $400/mo for the heating bill.

That is crazy to hear about a $400 heating bill. Congrats on that.  I live in eastern VA so i don't think i will get that much, but the miners should help ofset the costs by a fair bit.  Any tips on routing the airflow?

Mine sit in an unused space under the basement stairs. Stairs are in the middle of the wall so cool(er) air is drawn in from one side of the basement comes out hotter the other side. In the process of circulating back to the intake side a lot wafts up the stairs helping with heating rooms near the stairs.

I will add that I have an unfinished basement so upstairs floor is exposed and that no doubt helps (in winter). If the basement ceiling is closed off - try and route the hot air through it along some joists?

Beyond that, one of the basement miners is a gimpy near silent R4 so when cold weather really get here it gets moved up into the living room. Only 1 board works but is a perfect 4.7THs @ 490w space heater Cheesy

 I haven't had a "heating bill" for about 3 years now - I have a year-round COOLING bill.

 Or at least "ventilation" even in the winter, which sorta counts.

Yeah, I'll go with that counting. I'm hoping to avoid some of that come summer but we will see.  Have you seen "Two Ton Hasher" on youtube?
