I have 1 zone for my first floor which includes my bedroom.

Customer Question
I have 1 zone...

I have 1 zone for my first floor which includes my bedroom. At night our bedroom gets super hot but the rest of first floor is fine. I’ve seen thermometers that can be put on a night stand so the thermostat can regulate based on that additional thermometer in a different room

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, do you think this is a larger HVAC problem, or something specific to the thermostat?

I think it’s the thermostat or really the placement We put off body heat at night so it gets warm but the thermostat is in another room so it doesn’t know it’s hot

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If it’s easy then yes

Hello?
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 6 months ago

You can't regulate warm air heat with a thermostat on a night stand. Probably the lowest impact option would be to move the existing thermostat to an area that can better control temp in the bedroom.

Can you regulate cold air with an additional thermostat?
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 6 months ago

You could add a second thermostat for the same zone and turn off the original one at night then turn on the one in your bedroom

Hello, you can use a thermostatically controlled warm air outlet in place of the existing one in the bedroom

.

Click here please

Tell me if that is the type of warm air outlet you have, or if you have around one in the ceiling .

We can go from there without any time limits.
