Have you ever learned the temperature on your control equipment and wondered whether it was entirely accurate? I have! It seems as if the temperature in the various rooms of my cabin can fluctuate quite a bit, but for example, I am convinced that my kitchen is the coldest room in the house.
If I shut my door, it can almost recognize that I care about a walk-in refrigerator.
And yet, I set the control equipment to a mere 68 degrees. I walk out of my room into the living room and it seems as if the temperature goes up at least a few degrees; Then I go to the other side of my cabin in the guest kitchen, and it’s the warmest room in the house. I think there are a variety of factors involved in this peculiar situation. The closet that contains the components for my air cooler method is right outside my kitchen door, so perhaps I get the benefit of the best cooling in my room because of that. The guest room, on the other hand, gets the most sun exposure throughout the day, since it is on the west wing of the house, and there is an open field in that direction. On the east side of my house, there is a tree line that blocks the sun as it rises in the day. I do not know how much these little things contribute to the difference in temperature in each room of my house, despite what the control equipment says. I am satisfied with the situation, although I wonder whether or not my air cooler was the right size for my house.
