Help Me Fix the Cold Room Above My Garage
Many homes across our country have cold and drafty rooms during the wintertime. It is unfortunate that uncomfortable rooms in our homes are quite commonplace. Generally, as homeowners, we simply accept them as “that’s just how our house is”. This is especially true for homes that have “bonus rooms” or rooms over garages. During the large number of energy audits completed by GreenHomes America, homeowners constantly tell us about the uncomfortable conditions in these rooms.
Thinking about rooms over garages for a second, they usually have unconditioned space or cold air all around. This includes the garage as well. Frequently, these spaces remain the farthest room from the furnace as well. Plus, they often contain small, undersized ducts that supplying the heat to the space. (Of note, often the ducts are undersized due to space limitations connecting the room over the garage to the heating system.) However, reliable solutions exist that make rooms over garages much more comfortable while saving energy for the occupants.
