    Hmm 2 cold bedrooms and end of run

    duct starts at 8x18, goes 5 ft before an 8x18 elbow
    then the run reduces down in a soffit, to what, not sure..
    run might be 15' long.. 2 bedrooms, 12x12 are at the end
    of this run and are colder than the rest of the house..
    what can I do to warm these rooms up?
    would like to add something in the furnace room at 8x18 duct
    before the elbow.. any suggestions?

    thanks

    The tempurature in your house is controlled by the thermostat. Where is this located? It may help to damper sown the heat run around the t-stat to make the unit run longer to help heat the 2 rooms. Also you may try to run your fan all the time to help circulate the air in the house.
    Its a good Life!

    If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.

    From the first part of the 8X18,have your contractor run anothe duct ,like a 9" round flex to near the bedroom ducts with a damper to adjust air flow.Something like this will likely solve te issue.
