My kitchen was freezing.

This would put a small boost into the amount of heat and air conditioning that flowed into the rooms and it could help with our ‘dead’ spots

Ever since we moved into our house, we have been finding areas of the house where the heating and air conditioning don’t reach. I had one area of the kitchen that was always freezing in the winter. One would think this spot would be by the kitchen door, but they would be wrong. The spot was in the corner near the stove. The only time there was any heat in that area, was when I was cooking. It was like we had our own personal icebox standing in that spot. I called the HVAC company and asked what I could do about this and the other areas in the house that were impervious to heating and air conditioning. When the HVAC tech showed up, he showed my husband and I how the spots we pointed out were the furthest from the furnace and air conditioning units. He said the ductwork didn’t reach those areas, which is why there weren’t any air vents there. He told us there were fans they could put into the ductwork that would help to push more heat into those rooms. This would put a small boost into the amount of heat and air conditioning that flowed into the rooms and it could help with our ‘dead’ spots. When asked how much it was going to cost, my husband balked. He said that before he put more money into the current ductwork, he would rather wait until we decided for the new system. He wanted to go with a ductless HVAC system in the next couple years, and I would just need to put up with cold spots.
