Fixing a problem myself

It never seems to fail.

The answer always seems to smack me in the face as soon as I give up trying to figure out a problem.

This happens all the time and it just happened yet again. The Heating and Air Conditioning in my house works very well. The two of us bought this house about 6 years ago and the best part of the sale was having a new, super efficient Heating and Air Conditioning model installed. I checked it all out myself first and had the HVAC company confirm it was a fantastic model and was the right fit for our home. It was fantastic from the very first day we spent in that house. That is except for 1 room. There is a small bedroom in the back of the house that just wouldn’t heat up in the Winter time. The two of us didn’t worry about it at the time though and my wife made it sort of a storage and craft room. All we did was stick a space heater in there whenever we needed to use the space. Well that changed after we adopted a foster child. The two of us needed that bedroom to heat like the rest of the house. I just couldn’t figure out how to get that room to be as warm as it should be. I reinsulated the window and checked to be sure there weren’t any other gaps letting in frigid air. Still, it did nothing. Our foster child was a fantastic sport and we’d heat the room up with a space heater before he climbed into bed. Like 7 or 8 weeks later, it dawned on me to simply put in room to room ventilators. This would solve the problem by equaling out the temperature among the adjoining rooms and didn’t cause me too much of a headache.
