I have recently been noticing the evolution of a junk room. It just never occurred to myself in previous years how a particular room in someone’s otherwise tidy home ends up being the junk room. A junk room is that room that never serves as an actual bedroom because it becomes the recipient of a bunch of stuff that has no other place to be stored. My mother always had a junk room. Those rooms were packed with arbitrary items that she just couldn’t bring herself to get rid of. So, they of course needed to be in an Heating & A/C treated room inside the house. All this being said, I can’t criticize too much because I sort of have a junk room in my residence, as well. This got myself and others to wonder how this room ended up becoming the poile-it-in room. It starts with the simple fact that this room in our cabin is considered a cold spot in our residence. The only time this is a happy accident is when the Heating & A/C is pumping in June, July and August. The rest of the year, that room is just not a comfortable place to lay your head. I had the Heating & A/C guy in here because I thought that maybe the room just wasn’t sufficiently ventilated. Unfortunately, the Heating & A/C tech explained that when the former owners added on to the residence they didn’t do so with Heating & A/C airflow paid attention to. This guest room just doesn’t get the right Heating & A/C exposure as a result. Because I hate junk rooms, I set out to find a solution. I put in some room to room ventilators in the walls, and we use them to draw Heating & A/C treated air into the room. Perhaps with the more favorable temperatures in that room, it might stop its slide into junk room.
