Do you know how much it will cost approximately - if I had to get this done by some one. My room is 20 x 14 I guess.

Call some local carpet supply shops, they may be able to give you a ballpark figure. Often installers are subcontractors, if you can find one you may get a better price.

You could take a chance by using a studfinder to find joists through the carpet/flooring/subflooring and sink small-headed screws to fasten down these loose boards.
You may not notice the small holes in the carpet.

At 14 ft. I you have 2x8 floor joists, that would explain everything.
