I have never genuinely considered the lifespan of a junk room. It just never occurred to myself and others how a particular room in the house somehow becomes the junk room. A junk room is where stuff gets chucked into as well as never serves as an actual home office. In every home I have ever lived in, my mother had a junk room. Those rooms were packed with a bunch of items that she just couldn’t bring herself to throw out. So, they of course needed to be in an HVAC cooled and heated room inside the house. However, I can’t criticize too much because I sort of have a junk room in my own house now. This got myself and others to wondering how this room became the unused guest room. It starts with the easy fact that this room in our house is always several degrees colder than the rest of our home. The only time this is a benefit is when the HVAC is pumping in July and August. The rest of the year, that room is just too cold. I had the HVAC woman in here because I thought that maybe the room just wasn’t ventilated the right way. Unfortunately, the HVAC tech explained that when the former owners upgraded the house, they didn’t do so with HVAC airflow in mind. This guest room just doesn’t receive the right HVAC exposure as a result. However, I was able to find an answer to the problem. I put in some room to room ventilators in the walls. This pulls HVAC treated air into the junk room. Perhaps with the better temperatures in that room, it might stop its descent into junk room.
