I am a new burner. I have been experimenting over the last couple of days. We have overhead fans in virtually every room. Outside temps dropped like a rock over the last few days to a low o 7 and a high of 31. I have been running my Quadrafire Isle Royale at a constant 400-500 and have not been able to get the living room that it is in over 71. I cranked up the ceiling fan to high and presto the room is up to 76 and rising in 20 min. What I learned is that heat is all about air circulation......similar experiences??
