Welcome to our ‘How-To’ video series!
Certain areas of home too cold
- Check for items around the room or doors which could be preventing proper ventilation.
- Check for open windows, door and windows with drafts. Repair, replace or upgrade windows and doors with bad seals.
- Check the thermostat in the cold rooms and turn up the temperature setting if too low.
- Inspect radiator valves and make sure they are fully open to allow hot water flow. Open further if needed.
- Bleed radiators in cold areas to remove trapped air preventing heat circulation.
- Verify zone valves for the cold area are open fully. Adjust or replace valve if not functioning properly.
- Check for closed supply/return valves for the zone. Open fully if found closed.
- Insulate exposed pipes and radiators in cold rooms to prevent heat loss.
- Look for leaks in pipes or radiators within the zone that may be losing heat. Repair any found leaks.
- Consider upgrading room thermostats to newer digital models for more accuracy.
- Consider upgrading windows and doors which don’t provide adequate seals and insulation.
- Consider installing additional insulation around the house.
