I'll be looking at a gas fireplace or something to heat up the basement. I havn't done the ceiling yet. Any other ideas of what can be done in the interim other than plugging an electric heater? Don't find it humid, so don't think a dehumidifier would do much.
You have one or more of:

Too few hot air vents
Undersized Cold Air Return and/or wrong location(s)
Inadequate insulation
Poor air sealing
