Why Do Some Spots Of My House Feel Cool, While Others Feel Hot?
Many homes suffer from uneven temperatures. Residents often need to remove layers at times then reach for a sweater a few minutes later. A common cause of uneven temperatures is an undersized HVAC unit. Poor insulation is a common culprit and leads to drafts. The third most common cause is a poorly maintained air conditioner. Blackout blinds and energy efficient windows can aid insulation problems, while a regular maintenance schedule keeps heating and cooling units functioning properly.
- Many persons think of their home as their oasis, a place of refuge, and because of this they expect it to be cool.
- When the temperature in the rooms in the house is not balanced, one might feel hot one minute and the other is suddenly cold.
- When the HVAC unit in the room is the wrong size, maybe when it is too small, it has to do so much work to cool the room.
