I'm a landlord. I rent out the 3 story house to the tenants.
They complained about the one room, which is colder than the others and they have to raise the temperature on the thermostats for that room to be heated.
I installed a new gas heating furnace for my tenants before this winter and got rid of the old oil heating system. Also moved the thermostats to the 2nd fl hallway where there's not as many vents as the first fl so that the heat can be distributed equally.
They did not mention this problem when it was really cold 2 weeks ago, but very recently.
I wonder what should I do in this case?
I am aware that I should keep the minimum temperature for the unit to be 68 degree. But what should I do if most of the area is warm but only that specific room is not warm enough?
Thanks.

Is it a forced air system? If it is have the company that did the install go back and make sure the air flow is evenly between the rooms. If it's a hot water system you will need to check the radiator in that room, if that isn't the problem then the insulation/windows where the cold air is coming in at.
