I would say that in the house, especially close to appliances specifically designed to generate heat, ventilation should be a very high priority. If I were you, I’d look for or make a variable speed blower run to the outside via a dryer vent in the rim joist and open at least one of the windows in the finished section of the basement to replace the air being evacuated. As for the blower, more power = better in case you’re using something really nasty (like sprayed lacquer) and want none of the fumes making it into any other part of the house. I’ve sprayed catalyzed lacquer in my shop with everything closed to keep the dust at bay, even with a mask on the stench was bad (I only do this for small projects with very short exposure time). Even a day later the smell can still be quite strong as is the associated danger.
