I'm looking in to getting a pellet stove this summer to alleviate some of my oil bill, which who knows how much that will be next winter. My house is a 3 bedroom, 1200 sq ft ranch which has a fireplace in what is now our dining room (we added on a living room and turned the old living room into a dining room). I would like to use the existing fireplace to put in a pellet insert which will hopefully heat the whole house. The fireplace is at one end of the house. My questions are how hot will it be in that one room with the pellet stove and will it be able to heat the whole house, even the bedrooms at the other end of the house.
