We have a small second floor bedroom, measuring 9.5'x 14', over our garage. It's always freezing in the winter. There are two floor registers and one return located about a foot from the ceiling. We have gas heat. With the door open the heat from the rest of the house warms this room, but it is still noticably colder. With the door closed, it's as if the room isn't heated at all.

The bedroom is located over our garage and two of it's walls are exterior walls. The ducts are dirty and dusty. Since we had this home built 5 yrs ago we never had the ducts cleaned, but I can see it's needed.

There's attic space above the room, but it is inaccessible and has no fan. The builder put an attic access panel in another part of the second floor that is so small we can't even fit our shoulders through the opening so it's useless. We've never been in the attic space above.

This is our toddler's room, so I'm hesitant to plunk a radiator in the room b/c I don't want her to get burned.

What can be done to restore heat to this room? Or ... how do I find a reliable HVAC or contractor to evaluate the situation in case you need to see it first hand to determine what's wrong?

I know this is alot of information, but I figured you should have the complete picture. THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR REPLIES!!
