"Why does one cold room seem to affect the whole house? "
We get the same question in the summertime too, but during that time of year homeowners are wondering why one hot room seems to affect the whole house.
Whether it’s a bathroom in the middle of the house, a room above the garage, or the top-floor bedroom, many homeowners deal with a room that is seasonally uncomfortable.
So let’s discuss why this phenomenon occurs and what you can do if you’re experiencing the same problem.
Room too cold?
Cold rooms are often a result of rooms adjacent to the exterior or an unconditioned space (such as a garage), that were not properly air sealed or insulated. Many times you need to insulate/air seal the rooms above, below, or adjacent to the problem room.
Room too hot?
Hot rooms tend to be located on the upper floors in a home, either above a garage or directly below the attic. It could mean these rooms were not properly air sealed or insulated. In some cases, hot rooms can be the result of an inefficient cooling system, where an inadequate amount of conditioned air is reaching the room.
If you’re having either of these problems, we can help! We will come out to your home, listen to your issues, diagnose the problem, recommend the most cost-effective solution and implement your comfort-controlling measure. Most homeowners communicate a noticeable difference before we even leave the house.
Should you get an Assessment or an Audit?
The root of the problem behind rooms that are too hot or too cold can often be identified with an Insulation Audit and Infrared Thermal Inspection.
