Is one room of your house is colder than the rest of the house?

There could be a few solutions for the problem, some expensive and some cheap. Property holders regularly imagine that they need to live with temperature irregularities in various parts of their homes since they are hesitant to burn through countless dollars to upgrade their heating and insulating systems. However, much of the time, the solutions are so straightforward and economical but many may ignore them…

On the off chance that you have to warm just a particular piece of a room, for example, the work area region in a home office or a love seat close to a television, get an energy efficient, 1,500-watt compact electric space radiator. It costs no more $40 yet delivers as much warmth as bigger models.

If the problem is bigger there are a few solutions you can look at.

  1. Thermostat placed poorly: Is your thermostat placed in a room that receives a lot of sunlight, and the rooms heat up too quickly, it shuts the furnace off too quickly, not giving enough time for it to warm the rest of the house.

The problem could be solved by adding a wireless thermostat in the cold room, or a wired system like Nest, which costs around $200 to $300.

  1. Heat from your furnace is not reaching the cold spots.: If you feel that the airflow through the vents is very low, there is quite a good chance that the air is leaking through the small holes and leaks in ductwork. On average, in an old house, almost 30% of the air flow is loosed in leaks.

Use Aeroseal conduit sealant, a nontoxic polymer spray that contractors pump into both rigid and flexible ducts, fixing holes from within the pipes. This item got a Best New Product award from This Old House magazine. It has demonstrated so viably at enhancing heat flow (and saving money on heating costs) that it merits doing in your whole home.

  1. Heat from the hot room is not dispersing in the adjacent rooms: The rooms with an additional heating source (e.g. fireplace or a stove) get too hot but the heat does not disperse in the adjacent rooms.


For this problem, an ultra quiet fan system could be installed between the rooms right in the wall. One side of the ventilator system will help even out the heat between the rooms. It costs around $100 for the parts and installation.
