I have an old house, circa 1870s, with forced hot air headed by gas. I have my thermostat set to 70 which seems to be accurate at the point where the thermostat is. However, my kitchen is freezing. I bought a thermometer to double check this and indeed at the point of the thermostat, it is 70 degrees. But, my kitchen is usually 55 in the winter and I can't take it. My house is not that big to warrant such a huge temperature change. The kitchen is insulated. I had the basement ceiling below insulated but that hasn't helped at all. Whenever I ask about what to do to warm up the rest of the house, I get a lot of strange answers. One was to move the thermostat into the kitchen which will make the kitchen warmer but then the living room will be way too warm and the furnace will work too hard. Does anybody have any idea why this is this way and what to do about it? I'm so tired of being cold.
