Could my electronics be the cause of a hot room?

So, for some reason my room is the warmest room in my house. Like, I'm almost sweating right now. I've got my vents uncovered and everything. Now, when I'm in my room I usually have my TV, Xbox, and laptop going. I know they all generate some heat, but would this be enough to heat it up a lot? And if it is, is there anything I can do about besides shutting them off?

well my dear sounds like you's the same with my room...its the hottest room on the floor because it only has a small window and the room is so small but I have everything in bed, the tv, my desktop computer, my nail table & all the accessories to go with it {like a powered drill & uv light(to cure gel)...} and on top of all that I also have a tall fan that I cant live without because I keep my door shut at all times for what little privacy I do seem to have here! That may be the source of your heat issue...sometimes I feel like I am in a sauna with the damn a/c even being on!
I would try keeping one on at a if you are on the laptop then they to just be on the dont need the xbox on while being on the computer either now do ya?! If you can eliminate the extra things you have on first of all you will lower the electric currents flowing in your room so it will get a little cooler not to mention help your electric bill! If you are sweating right now hun, water dont cost a thing...s h o w e r use yourself off...then have a glass of water or a cold fruit like some watermelon or melon...anything to keep your body hydrated & cool! Think about if your laptop gets overheated what will happen? It will shut if suppose you arent doing doing anything that interesting on the computer shut it off for a an hour or 2 to cool off & turn something else the tv or xbox...alternate...but dont keep them all on at the same time...I dont either!

good luck hope this helps!

yes its possible they are making your room hotter but it would have to be a small room.. your xbox and laptop both have numerous fans inside them to cool them down which im sorry to say dont work very well.. at this moment in time ive got my side off of my pc case and i have a huge room fan blowing inside, over my hardware to keep the temps down. so my suggestion would be to get yourself a room fan ;)

agreed 100%

ANSWER #4 of 6

Your electronics can raise the temp a little bit...but I'd think if your room is on the west or the south side of the house, that would be why it's the warmest....

ANSWER #5 of 6

Yes, it could. My room is much hotter now that I have a computer in it.

ANSWER #6 of 6

Haha, same here. My door is usually closed as well, I can't stand open doors. And I do drink an insane amount of water in here. I tend to play video games and talk to my friends on my laptop while doing so. Thank you!
