I put the vents in rooms that were furthest away from the stove like living room and kitchen hoping warm air would rise. I have been reading some about hooking duct work from the stove to vents and am leaning that way.
It tends to work better if the vents in the far rooms allow the cool air to drop to the basement floor pulling the warm air into those rooms. My stoker is in the uninsulated basement of our rancher. I have a floor vent in the far bedroom that is a supply for the A/C in the summer and has flex duct on it. I disconnect the flex duct in the winter at the trunk and let that end lay on the basement floor. You can feel the cool air coming out of the flex and the dust bunnies gather at the floor vent in the bedroom.
