Close Heat Vent on Unused Room?


For the past two years, I have closed the heat vent in a guest bedroom to save heat. However, I don't seem to be using less propane than years when I left room open. Is it better to leave the room and vent open?

The house was built in 1968, one floor, 1000 sq ft, has cathedral ceilings, furnace is forced-air propane new in 2002.

Saves a little fuel, but not much.
There is no insulation in the inside walls. So the other rooms loose heat to it.
