The powder room our children use is almost constantly cold. Now that it’s become incredibly chilly outside, I’ve begun to notice it when I go in their to clean on the weekends. At first, I thought maybe there was a problem with the room itself. I checked the baseboard radiator, however felt the heat coming out just fine, so the Heating and A/C method really wasn’t the problem here. Then I checked the window, expecting to assume a draft which indicated the gaskets for the window were bad or perhaps the whole window itself had suffered from a shoddy install. Neither of these happened either. I felt no chilly air coming out of the window at all, it was tight and solid, then determined to find the source of the chilly air, I went online and did some digging. Only then did I solve the problem, and it was so obvious I should have seen it coming from the beginning, however its something I’ve also never thought about before. The vent hood in the powder room doesn’t just suck up moisture in the air, however in the process it sucks up the hot air, recognizably the air in house thats been warmed up by the oil boiler. It may not seem adore these little vents can do much, however apparently you’re only supposed to leave them on for 20 minutes. An hour of a vent hood running can suck up all of the hot air in our house! So this weekend I’m buying a current switch for the powder room vent that is a timer, so we can make sure it always turns off promptly.
