I was super gleeful to install our brand new washer and dryer into our brand new laundry room.
It wasn’t exactly a laundry “room,” however more of a small closet with a stackable washer and dryer and some built-in shelves to hold all our laundry supplies.
Some people may not get gleeful over a closet laundry room, but I was glad! Previously, the washer and dryer were in the cold, dark, basement. I had to carry all the clothes from the minute floor, down more than one flights of stairs, and then carry it all back up when it was done. With more than one small kids, the laundry couldn’t be neglected, and it was a full workout trying to get it all done. This is why I was so gleeful to have it moved up to the minute floor, where all the study rooms were! About a month into using our new laundry “room,” I realized that something was off. During the evenings, it felt entirely chilly upstairs, no matter what I set the thermostat to. The thermostat was saying it was 75 degrees, however it didn’t guess enjoy that at all. I also noticed a lot of condensation building up on the door whenever I ran the dryer. I started leaving the door open while it ran, however it didn’t help much. When the Heating, Ventilation and A/C professional came over to repair our Heating, Ventilation and A/C system, I asked him about the upstairs thermostat and why it wasn’t heating officially, then unluckyly, she told me that the dryer was causing so much humidity and heat, that it was confusing the thermostat. It assumed the upstairs was already heated when it wasn’t.
