Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
The federal housing laws require a proper heating system in the entire home. If there is no heat provided to the bedroom, then this could be a housing code violation. You need to read your loan agreement though first of all, because if it requires maintaining compliance with codes and the heating system is required by your codes in GA or federal codes, then you have to make sure you comply (add on or not). If the bedroom is properly heated, you need to provide evidence of that, as there is no law saying it has to have separate heat.
