Why is This Room So Cold? Solving Temperature Imbalances Within Your HomeAndrew at Aeroseal
Are you one of the many homeowners currently suffering from a temperature imbalance in one or more of your rooms? Have you found yourself asking questions like, “Why is my bedroom the coldest in the house?”, “Why is one room in my house so hot?”, or “Why are some rooms colder than others?” Assuming your ductwork has been properly installed, every room in your house that has a heating vent should be the same exact temperature when you turn on the furnace. If you have a room or section of your house that either does not get up to the same temperature as the rest of your house or takes much longer to heat and cool than other rooms, you could have a problem with your ductwork. Properly installed ductwork is designed to provide every room of your house with equally cool or warm air, depending on how your furnace is currently set up. It does this by pushing air through different sized branches of ductwork. The size of the ductwork connected to a room will depend on how big the room itself is. The bigger the room, the bigger it’s ductwork. Ductwork needs to be different sizes like this because every furnace pushes out warm and cold air at the same rate. The only way to create an evenly heated or cooled space throughout the entire house at the same time is by giving each room a bigger or smaller hole for air to be pushed into. If you experience cold rooms or rooms that take too long to heat and suspect you have a problem with your ductwork, let’s take a look at some ways you can remedy this issue and get your house as evenly heated as possible.
