Cold & Hot Rooms
Many customers ask us, “what can be done to fix the heating problem in the room above our garage or any room that is colder than other parts of the home during the winter.”
Comfort First Heating & Cooling has the answers. We will provide a thorough analysis of the room in question. Using infrared technology, we can measure ceiling wall and floor temperatures and also check the volume and temperature of the heated air coming from the floor registers. Many homes with rooms over the garage have poor insulation techniques and create a cold bedroom. In many cases, we remove the drywall in the garage ceiling giving us access to the fiberglass insulation. This insulation is removed and replaced with closed cell, 2 lb. spray foam. The bottom side of the bedroom subfloor in treated and the metal heat pipes (a.k.a. heat runs) are encapsulated in this foam. Any heat pipes running up the garage walls are also treated with the same technique. We have seen a 10-22 deg.F increase in heated air temperature under the same measured conditions. In all cases we have solved the temperature imbalance and satisfied the customer.
Comfort First offers a turn key job handling all the details from start to finish. Our technicians are equipped with the knowledge and tools to diagnose this problem and offer a proper solution.
