I have forced hot air system in house with the fresh air intake in the same room as stove and I'm going to wire the circulating fan from the furnance to a timer to kick on at timed intervals to get the heat to my furthest rooms from stove and add a bathroom style fan in the coldest upstairs bed room on a variable control switch to draw warm air up. Will give a update in a couple days. Increased feed and fan rate to almost 2lbs per hour stove temp @ 300/320 all rooms are warm but rooms where stove is almost 85 need better air movement.
2lbs, That sounds more like it. Very typical to move the warm air to the other parts of the dwelling via duct work and such.
You are very fortunate to a forced air system already in place, lots of us are heating "electric" homes with no such convienent ducting and are forced to be abit more inventive.
Sounds like you're well on your way, congrats.
