Another way to get heat into a room is to put hot ashes from your stove/fireplace in a metal container and place the container in the room on a heat-proof surface. We discovered this method when our power was out due to an ice storm. Our bathroom was far, far from the heat source (fireplace) but because it is a small room we were able to put the ashes back there and bring the temperature up a bit, to the point we weren't worried about the pipes freezing. We set the bucket on a couple of bricks to protect the floor and were amazed at the difference it made.
