We havethe new 201031RE Cruiser and was trying out the furnace tonite. All the floor vents seem okay but the bedroom floor vent seems to put out very little air. Is this normal because its the farthest away from the furnace or should we have more output. Thanks Craig

Harvette...Do a search as this is discussed often. The bottom line is that the furthest register normally gets the least amount of air (this is true for the A/C ducting as well). improvements can be made by sealing up the ducting attachment adapters at the furnace as well as the blank-offplates over the unused furnace outlets; adding louvered registers and closing registers in the living room. For the A/C, sealing the A/C unit itself, sealing around the ceiling registers and blocking off the ducting after the last register in the duct "run".

I replace the floor vents with ones that close from Lowes, That helps a lot, I also will run a Ceramic heater in the winter in the hall way keeps us toasty.

Our bedroom vent doesn't put out much, if at all. We try not to use our furnace at all. Did use the electric fireplace for heat lots, way more than I thought we would.

Honestly, I did a little project on this. Took apart the furnace cover and taped all the blanks not in use. Also, sealed up the register's correctly. In the pass-thru, I used metal register tape and re-did some sloppy openings. There are two feeding lines to the front and I shortened them and taped them and re-installed the hiding panel.

These all helped out to elimiate waste. Really, you don't want the full furnace flow to go into the bedroom, it would become a sauna.

Another thing that restricts flow to the bedroom is that it is going through a smallish round flex tube, which creates a lot o drag.
