ok here goes..referring to room temperatures. in a 'normal' room with a temp of 75-78F. the cooler part of the room is near the floor and warmer air is higher up. what if your controling the room temperatures via a fan/heater(with thermostat) on the floor without using a central air/heat vent on the ceiling.. would this be making the whole room warm/cool or do the principles of warm air rises and cooler air falls still apply? :?

If I'm understanding your question correctly, then I believe the rules of warm air rising still applies. There won't necessarily be a huge difference between the temp on the floor and the temp on the ceiling, but the difference should exist. Unless maybe it's a really small room, and you have the heat/ac going constantly. I only have floor vents in my house, and sitting on the floor always seems marginally cooler than sitting on a chair or something.
