Hot Here. Cold There.
When walking from one room of your house to another, you realize that the temperature changes. Your bedroom is a comfortable temperature, but the bonus room above the garage is too hot to spend any time in. In fact, it’s so bad that for many parts of the year you don’t use the room at all because it’s too uncomfortable. Additionally, in your dining room, the air temperature is consistent with the thermostat’s setting but the floors are much colder than the rest of the home’s floors.
You’re Not Alone.
These symptoms are indicative of various issues. Bonus rooms—rooms built above a garage—are especially prone to extreme temperature swings due to lack of insulation in the floors, walls, and even the ceiling. Ductwork is often improperly installed or leaky. HVAC units are commonly sized wrong or installed incorrectly. Crawlspaces often lack proper insulation. Unfortunately, these issues are common in new and old homes alike. While homeowners try remedies such as closing certain vents or using window units, these treatments seldom work and act more as a Band-Aid then a true solution.
