Achieving the right indoor temperature has been a struggle for me.
More often than not, I would end up with a hotter or cooler than the necessary indoor temperature, despite my best efforts to achieve an ambient indoor temperature.
At first, I thought the problem arose due to my analog thermostat. So I replaced my mechanical thermostat with a programmable thermostat, but my indoor temperature problem persisted. I knew I had to act fast to correct this problem, or else my children would begin to experience health issues. I called an HVAC technician to diagnose my home and fix the indoor temperature issue. The HVAC professional was successful at eliminating cooler spots in the house. Unfortunately, the HVAC repairman wasn’t able to eliminate the hotter spots in the house. We still had to deal with this problem until I decided to take matters into my own hands. I called a few of my friends over. One of them was a construction expert, and the other, Tim, was an HVAC professional. Together, we brainstormed on how to fix the hot rooms entirely. My builder friend, Greg, suggested that we add a new window and improve the existing insulation. These measures aimed to improve the circulation of air in the house and inhibit heat from getting into the indoor space. Tim suggested that I install a ceiling fan to help in cooling the body. His suggestion was born from his observation on where the hot air was more concentrated within the house. After making the necessary adjustments and HVAC installations, I was able to achieve my desired indoor temperature.
