The Dryer Was Confusing My Thermostat

I was super happy to install our brand current washer plus dryer into our brand current laundry room.

It wasn’t exactly a laundry “room,” but more of a small closet with a stackable washer plus dryer plus some built-in shelves to hold all our laundry supplies.

Some people may not get happy over a closet laundry room, although I was cheerful! Previously, the washer plus dryer were in the cold, dark, basement. I had to carry all the clothes from the minute floor, down two flights of stairs, plus then carry it all back up when it was done. With two small kids, the laundry couldn’t be neglected, plus it was a full workout trying to get it all done. This is why I was so happy to have it moved up to the minute floor, where all the home offices were! About a month into using our current laundry “room,” I realized that something was off. During the afternoons, it felt easily frigid upstairs, no matter what I set the thermostat to. The thermostat was saying it was 75 degrees, but it didn’t know adore 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, but it didn’t help much. When the HVAC professional came over to maintenance our HVAC system, I asked him about the upstairs thermostat plus why it wasn’t heating officially! Unluckyly, he told me that the dryer was causing so much humidity plus heat, that it was confusing the thermostat. It assumed the upstairs was already heated when it wasn’t.
