Something doesn't sound right. How much of a fire are you burning in your woodstove? Is the wood dry or wet and just smoldering? How high is the temperature on the stove pipe? (there are magnetic thermometers to stick to the pipe that show the proper burn temperature) I had a fireplace insert in our stone fireplace for a while, I wouldn't recommend them-- unless you use a stainless steel pipe inside the chimney because your stone/brick chimney likely won't get hot enough to stay clean, and then you need a way to remove the soot. Regardless of what you burn wood in you need to maintain your chimney!

Another reason you aren't getting enough heat from the ducts could be the blower (surely your ductwork uses a blower). Is the blower running? Has a key lost from the fan/motor shaft? Is the filter plugged? When I was a kid growing up, coming in from doing chores my favorite spot was sitting on the floor in front of the kitchen register. The air blowing from the duct was extra warm and felt wonderful!

I sweep my chimney regularly, 2 times a season regardless if it really needs it or not. Open the damper & let it burn hot once a week for 30 minutes. Currently burning elm, mixed with some oak. Everything I burn has been sitting for 3 months or longer before I burn them, also the trees have been dead for 2 years. I like the idea of an insert but the idea of burn of burning twice the amount of wood & the cost makes me wonder if I should upgrade to a actual wood furnace for the same money as an insert.
