My home office was feeling warmer than other parts of my house, which was unusual.
- It was on the ground floor, so I wasn’t sure why the heat was so strong in that particular room.
I tried tinkering around with the thermostat settings, but none of the changes I made affected the temperature of my office. I didn’t know how to fix the issue on my own, so I contacted an HVAC company to come take a look at things. When I told them that the office space wasn’t normally warmer than the rest of the house, they agreed that something was triggering it, so they began looking at the HVAC equipment to find the problem. They searched for 30 minutes before they found what the issue was. Unbeknownst to me, my daughter had closed the air vents in her bedroom, which happened to be next to my office. The HVAC professionals began explaining how it was negatively affecting the temperature of my office.The heat our furnace was producing wasn’t able to release itself into my daughter’s room, so it was pushing itself into mine, which was causing the extra warmth. The HVAC professionals confirmed that my daughter had shut the air vents for an extended period of time based on how much heat was coming into my office. I had to have a long discussion with my daughter when she got home from school that afternoon and she wasn’t very happy about it. She wasn’t looking forward to the heat being evenly distributed into her room.
