I live in a two story townhouse with a basement this summer, they replaced the furnace and air conditioning unit. Last winter i put the 3M film over the windows to help with drafts and it worked great i was warm and comfy all year. This year i did the same and my room is always cold and the heat is set to the same temperature. This doesn't make sense i figured maybe new furnace would heat better. My bedroom is on the 2nd floor furnace is in basement. That is 2 floors away. Heat rises. In the summer the upstairs is a lot warmer than the ground level living floor. Now in the winter its the opposite the upstairs is colder...I don't get it. Anyway is there a way to keep my bed room warmer without turning the heat way up or adding supplemental heat with a plug in heater? Any one have any ideas?
I would also expect the new furnance to provide better heat than the old one. First thing to to is be sure you didn't arrange anything in the room different from last year. You don't have anything blocking the air registers. Check and make sure the air filter on the furnace is not clogged. If the room has only one register leave the door open so the colder air can circulate out of the room. If nothing in the room has changed contact the installer and ask them to check for any blockages or leaks that might be preventing the heat from reaching the room. It may be a problem with the blower pushing the air to that end of the house. If you have never had it done an energy audit is always a good idea. Most utilities offer them for free. They may point out missing duct insulation or air leaks that make the room colder than the rest.
