Thermostat remote sensor location

11 years ago

I am installing a wood stove centrally in my 2600 sq. ft. ranch (1floor) house. In the same room as my thermostat, very open kitchen, 500+ square foot. I purchased a Honeywell thermostat that cycles the furnace fan periodically to circulate the wood stove heat throughout the house. I can also connect remote temperature sensors to this thermostat. I was planning on putting a remote sensor at the far ends of the house to have the furnace turn on if those areas get to cold. One in a bedroom and one in the family room. Both sensors will not be exposed to outside facing doors. The only caveat is that the far bedroom I was planning to put a sensor has always been a cold room according to my family, also this room is the farthest from the furnace running the length of the duct work. My questions are is this a workable plan and is it a good idea to put a sensor in that room or in the hallway just out side.
