5. Why do I have rooms that are hot in the summer and cold in the winter?

Most home owners have experienced rooms in their homes that are always hot in the summer and cold in the winter. 

The average home owner justifies the problem by saying the ceilings are too high or there are a lot of windows in this room, which is not the problem.  All the rooms in a home should be within 2-3 degrees of each other. 

The simple answer is not enough air getting into the room. Every air conditioning contractor should perform a heat loss, heat gain calculation for every home to determine the size of the air condition and how much air each room needs.  This load calculation determines air requirements based on the construction of the home (type of walls, insulation values, and sun direction, etc.) 

The load calculation is vital to getting a properly designed system that will provide the most comfort with the least amount of energy consumed.   Please don't justify your hot and cold spots. Allow us to provide a solution to your hot and cold problems.
