I don't experience as much difference in the air temp from ceiling to
floor as I anticipated.  In a 30 by 60 metal building with only 2
inches of glass insulation, the difference in temp on two matched
thermometers floor vs. ceiling is only 2-3 degrees during both summer
air conditioning and winter heating as long as there is _some_ 
periodic fan circulation.  I guessed there'd be 10 or 15 degrees!
