have you explored ductless splits? may work for your application and a lot less intrusive than adding ductwork.

- Lennox Pulse21

the other problem you have is that the pulse furnace has been recalled.
Lennox as of last year was still offering a discount to replace the unit.
basically they will provide a furnace..you still need installation

- Blower motor speed

the best way to increase air flow to one room is to dampen down some other rooms that may have extra airflow. speeding the fan up may help a little. the faster the fan the less heat will come out of the vents tho. an inline fan will not help.

- Mysterious Fan Cut off

some units dont run the outside fan continously. it only runs when the refrigerent needs it to. does the unit cool the house ok? are you sure it didn't operate this way last year? if it is a problem with the unit and the fan has been replaced it must be the circuit board.
