Has anyone experienced this. Obviously it isn't an issue with the furnace itself as it is working really well to the rear.

Any ideas on how to correct this, or make the air hotter in the master suite? Thanks

Slightly OT - but this is a good time to ask a question of you all -

I have noticed some FW units that have the furnace located about half way between the front and rear of the unit (don't recall specific models).
I always thought that is a better location for it as the warm air travels equal distance from the front to the back which would prevent this type of problem. Our 29rk furnace is located in the rear and I haven't noticed any air flow peoblems.

Your thoughts.

Well it was a theory of mine - guess that is why I am not an engineer.

I am sure that many different things come into consideration on something like this - size of furnace, ducting size and routing, fan size, etc.

I'm thinking a duct work issue.
Air will flow or follow path of least resistance.

Wow, I'm surprised a dealer installed more 1 adjustable register. The heater manuals have a lot of warnings in them about causing a fire hazard by overheating the burners by restricting the airflow out of the ducts. Make sure not to restrict too many at the same time.
