Why Are Some Rooms Hotter Than Others?

Have you ever walked into a room in your house that is significantly warmer than the others? Many people face this problem and have no explanation for it. What causes one room in the house to be hotter than the others and how do you fix it?

Why Are Some Rooms in Your Home Different Temperatures?

A possible cause for one room to be warmer than the other is faulty ductwork. In order to cool a room off to the desired temperature, a certain amount of cold air needs to be pumped into that room. If there is not enough air being directed to that room, your air conditioner will have to work much harder, leading to a higher energy bill. If you have faulty ductwork, you will need to have a professional come out to confirm the problem and fix it.

Another explanation is that your thermostat is not placed in the right spot. If your thermostat is in the wrong location, the room it is in could be much cooler than other rooms in your house. An easy way to fix this is to have a professional come out and advise you on the correct location of the thermostat.

Your air conditioner could also be the problem. If your unit is too large, it will not run enough to heat/cool the entire house and there will be a noticeable difference in room temperatures. The way to fix this problem would be to replace your unit with one that is made for your amount of space.
