It’s the cause of many arguments between roommates: One person is
too hot in their room and wants to turn the AC on, while the person is
too cold and wants to leave it off. No ones is right or wrong, but the
solution is more complex than just turning the AC on or off. Here are
some of the causes of the discomfort inside your home:
Some things can’t be helped, like what of day the sun shines directly
into your room. The room facing the sun at a particular part of day will
be naturally warmer than the others. This means that an AC set to a particular
temperature in a home won’t cool the room facing the sun as much
as the others because the AC is gaging the temperature of the home as
a whole, not that room individually.
A Single Thermostat Can’t Measure a Whole House
A single thermostat doesn’t take into account all of the variables
that affect a multi-level home. For starters, as cool air is introduced
to a home, the heat inside rises to the top floor. If the home has one
AC on the ground floor then it will only take into account the temperature
of the ground floor and assume it’s the same up top.
You should also take into account that the room closest to the AC system
will always warm or cool faster than the others. From that point on, air
travels through the vents into different areas of the house, potentially
running into another issue.
Something in Your Vents
Air traveling through a vent can run into a number of different problems if the
ductwork isn’t in good shape. The vent leading to one room may have leak
causing that room to get little to no air while the others do.
