Hot Room

Question: I have one room in the house that is hotter than the rest of the house. The house is a two-story wood frame colonial. The room in question is a 2nd floor bedroom. I have baseboard radiators with an oil-heat boiler.

Answer: Hot air rises and if this room happens to be at the top of a stairway you are getting all of the heat from the rest of the home flowing into it. A southern exposure could also have a radiant heat effect on that room.

Try turning off that baseboard radiator, shutting that room's door and closing window blinds and see if makes a difference.
