Cold Room With Forced Air Furnace

Question: This summer we moved into an older home. With the colder weather, I have turned my furnace on and have noticed that one of my children’s bedrooms appears to be cold. Do I need a new furnace?

Answer: Before you run out and buy a new furnace you need to look at the house and the position of the air ducts, especially the cold air returns. It is not uncommon that what was once a central location for a cold air return has changed due to the addition or removal of walls and doors.
