Common Hot and Cold Indicators

  • Lack of airflow circulating through the room.
  • Poor return air pathway or insulation in the home.
  • Issues with the air ducts that may affect their performance (wrong size, leakage)
  • Obstructions or other foundational structures affect the temperature. Walls, chimneys, and slabs can influence airflow, and rooms with a lot of windows or glass can raise inside temperatures due to sunlight.
  • Rooms that are too far from central airflow and conditioning can feel warmer or cooler than the rest of the house.
  • Lack of dampers or dampers not working correctly to regulate airflow.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are some rooms hot and some rooms cold on the same furnace?

If one room feels warmer or cooler than the other, there could be issues regarding airflow throughout the house. If rooms are farther out from the furnace or air conditioning unit, they may not receive the proper ventilation from the HVAC unit. Closed or dirty vents can also obstruct airflow, so annual inspection and cleaning are important. Our HVAC technicians can assess your home to figure out ways to solve the issue of different rooms not benefiting from your heating and cooling appliances.

Why is one vent in my room hot and the other cold?

Vents in the same room that are different temperatures could be a result of obstruction or issues with your ducts and vents. Items and furniture blocking airways can make an impact on temperature. There might also not be enough vents in the room to circulate airflow properly or issues with the ducts being too long or not appropriately insulated. If your vents are unobstructed and you still have problems with varying temperatures, it’s time to call Bradley Mechanical to assess the situation.
