How best to circulate wood insert heat into the bedrooms at the end of the house? Answered

We have a decent size wood insert with dual squirrel cage fans in the center of the house on the ground floor.  It does a good job of heating the room its in, however none of the satellite rooms nor the upstairs bedrooms get much heat.  We have central air,  would running the system on circulate help, or will that just pull the warmest air out of each room (the returns are up high)?  Ultimately, I'd love an air/water heat exchanger to plumb into our HVAC but that doesn't seem practical from a house layout, expense or cosmetic perspective.

The heater can only do so much. I doubt it could produce enough heat to warm the entire house.
