How to Fix this
We are currently shopping a new heat pump system for our 2,950 sq. foot rambler. I need to decide how to resolve a heating/cooling problem that we have had in one room which is currently being remodeled into a larger space.
The original bedroom, 180 square feet with four 3' x 6' windows with one floor supply shown in Red. The air return, shown in Blue, is in the hallway just outside the door. The room was always been too cold in winter, too hot in summer. Air is coming through the supply well, and we do not find a problem with the ducting.
For the new room, we removed a wall between the original bedroom and what was a small office, creating one larger space, now apx. 280 sq. feet with six 3' x 6' windows and two floor supplies although they are somewhat close to each other.
Other considerations: The new room has a LOT of halogen track lighting in a large portion of the room, which creates a lot of heat.
We are re-flooring also, so all options are on the table: add a supply, move a supply and/or add a air return. What do you think is the best option to make the climate in this space better? Or, is the information given sufficient to determine the likely best solution, or what specifically is needed figure it out?
Thanks for your thoughts.
