Our house (with a recently replaced
boiler) doesn't get heat in every room. I thought I had figured out the cause, but I was wrong.

We have a gas steam boiler installed about two years ago, and we live in Salem, Massachusetts.
The second floor of our house has four rooms: the office, the master bedroom, the bathroom, and the nursery. Each of these rooms has a radiator, and when each radiator is fully open and the heat is on, the radiators in the master bedroom and the office get warm while the other two rooms don't seem to have anything.
I think I had previously gotten heat in the other two rooms by closing the valve on the radiator in the office, making the office colder. However, when I did this last night, the radiator nursery still never got warm.
Is this a problem I could fix on my own? How could I investigate further? If not, is it expensive? If you're in the area, is there an HVAC person you could recommend?
