We referred to the attic as the haunted room.
It was dark and dingy and was always too cold for comfort.
I thought of remodeling the attic when I started online interior design classes during the lockdown. I looked into more about heating and realized there was a possibility of an inexpensive way to fix the problem. We fixed the attic window and even added a skylight to increase the natural light. The next step was to contact the HVAC company and find out what we could do to fix the problem. During previous HVAC maintenance, we had never thought to ask the HVAC technician why the heat pump was not warming the attic. At some point, we thought of buying HVAC equipment specifically for that room. We also had a separate furnace that we did not use for home heating. The HVAC repairman suggested we try heated floors to help with indoor comfort. It sounded like an excellent idea since it left a blank canvas for me to decorate, and also, at that point, we were willing to try anything to get quality heating. He also conducted a heat pump service which ended up being a minor furnace/heater repair. We had recently replaced the furnace filter, which was one less expense. During the same period, we replaced the dial thermostat with a smart one since it was among the energy-saving tips the professionals suggested. After that, all we had to do was have regular services of the HVAC systems. I turned the attic into my home office and a reading area, and I could not get my family to leave that room for a few days.
