    Hi,
    at the moment we install a Drolet Eco‑45 in the Living room.
    It is nice to heath the living room, Kitchen and the area from the master bedroom.
    a isolated pipe runs from the ceiling over the stove in the loft with a 80cbf van to the Children room (on +5C and more it holds the temp in the room but not more main heat by central oil airforce)

    but what will the best place to heath the rest area??

    Maybe just a bigger stove? I don't see a natural place for a second stove, unless you can squeeze a small one in the hallway. But I think if you just went with a higher btu stove and placed it in the lower right corner of the living/dining area would heat the space better.

    Another option is to get a stove that has venting/ducting capabilities, and put it in the garage. Run the vents into the guest bed, hall, and children's room.

    I wouldn't use a boiler mod, but that's just my opinion.

    I still think the garage would be the best place for a large stove with ducting to the other rooms.

    Also, the way a stove works - it's one point of heat. So while you're in the room, it will be hot. But at night, when people are in their bedrooms, turn the stove up.

    Also worth a mention is installing a pellet furnace integrated with your existing forced hot air system. There are members here that have experience with them.

    Me too! More "even" heat through the whole house not just a room or 2. It may be more pricey, But truly the best way to heat the entire house IMHO.
