Why Are Some Rooms Colder Than Others?

It’s not uncommon for homes to feature one or two rooms that are significantly colder than areas throughout the rest of the house. Uneven temperatures can hinder the comfort level of a home, but luckily, there are ways to address this issue.

What’s Causing a Cold Room?

You should start by getting to the bottom of why certain rooms are cold. Let’s walk through some of the more common causes.

An Unbalanced System

When a home’s heating and cooling system is unable to provide an even temperature for the house, that’s called an unbalanced system, and it can stem from a variety of issues, from inadequate return vents to rooms that were recently added on to a home. The professionals at Alps Heating & Air Conditioning can take measures to address an unbalanced system.

Problems With Ducts

The air ducts are the veins of a heating and cooling system, delivering the conditioned air. If a room is too cold, it’s possible that damaged or leaky ducts are the culprits.

Filthy Air Filters

Believe it or not, but some homeowners forget to change their HVAC system’s air filter every few months as they should. These air filters can last up to six months before they start to create some serious issues. If an air filter is really old and dirty, it can restrict flow of air from a furnace, leading to chilly rooms.

Closed vents

This might seem like an obvious one, but it’s a problem that often goes unnoticed. If the vents in a room are closed, warm air is unable to get through and it can cause a cold room.

These problems range from relatively basic to technical. The more technical issues should
always be diagnosed and addressed by trained, licensed heating and cooling professionals.
