We have our own wood workshop and I am fortunate enough to be able to work out of the basement of our home. When the two of us bought our new home we made sure that there was room enough for me to have a seperate space for all of our wood as well as the storage for all our paints and other things. Now that I completely have our woodworking room all unpacked and am using it everyday, I am starting to notice a problem with the room temperature. At least I guess it’s the room however maybe it’s me. It doesn’t matter what the temperature is outside the room is always on the cold side. It can be 90 degrees outside, but I still feel cold in the basement. In the rest of the house the temperature is perfectly comfortable, however the basement feels like an icicle. I couldn’t figure it out. I ended up scheduling an appointment with our HVAC contractor to see if she could figure out the problem because the room was so miserable to work in. My spouse was insisting that I was deranged and that the room was just fine. While the HVAC contractor was in the basement, she even said she noticed a drastic change in the temperature from the rest of the house to this one room, at least I now believe it isn’t me! She evaluated the HVAC system, the ductwork and everything seemed fine. Then she looked in the closet and she was able to find a thermostat in the closet that was well hidden. Apparently, the basement had its own thermostat and it was permanently kept at 50 degrees, however now that I found it I will be changing it!
