Two common questions that we get asked here at Genuine Comfort are “why is my bathroom so cold in the summertime,” and “why is my bathroom so hot in the wintertime?” There could be many reasons why the temperature in your bathroom may be so extreme and that is why it is important to have an HVAC professional at your service, to determine the exact cause of your situation. However, there are ways to improve the comfort of your bathroom, by improving the overall temperature. Continue reading to learn about how we at Genuine Comfort can help you improve the comfort of your bathroom.
Improve The Comfort Of Your Bathroom
There are many ways to visually improve the comfort of your bathroom, such as improving the décor or installing new flooring or bath tiles. But one of the most effective ways to make your bathroom feel more comfortable is to have an even air temperature. You don’t want the first thing that you (or a guest) think about when you open the bathroom door to be, “Man, it’s hot/cold in here.” Luckily, there are options for bettering your air temperature.
#1: Too Hot? Use The Toe Kick
An effective way to reduce the heat in your bathroom is to simply turn off the toe kick underneath the counter. This will allow the room to have enough air to cool down but will decrease the heat entering the room.
#2: Too Cold? Install A Heat Lamp
If your bathroom becomes super cold during the summertime, an easy fix is installing a heat lamp into your bathroom’s fan. The bathroom fan will be able to distribute the heat, effectively warming up your bathroom despite the air conditioning.
#3: Install A Manual Damper
If you are finishing a basement, another thing you should do before you finish it is to install a manual damper in the run that extends into your bathroom. You can use the damper to turn down the air that is going into the bathroom, essentially regulating the temperature. You will still have colder air coming through the air duct, but less, which can be very useful for the wintertime.
