The single pane glass just gives you a lot less insulation and you've got a pretty good chunk of real estate to be heating. Updraft means air flow thru the furnace is headed for the attic for distribution down from the ceiling and downdraft means your warmed air is delivered thru floor ducts. Heat rises so you'll get better air mixing with a downdraft. I was just considering that since the current situation isn't satisfactory that the cheapest way to go might be an additional heat source in the room for when it gets really cold. A pellet stove is a wood stove that uses wood recycled into pellets that you buy in a bag. A lot cleaner burning and less messy than a regular wood stove. They have them at Lowes and Home Depot. One thing you might try that won't cost you anything is cranking down some on the heat registers in the rest of the house to force more heat flow from your existing heating system into the new room. Luck, Kizmet
