I hate doing laundry in the wintertime.

The reason I hate doing laundry in the wintertime is because we keep the heater turned off in that room. It gets really cold in there. It would be warm in there if the same heaters we had in the rest of the house were kept in that room. Of course, when the laundry room was built on, the builders did it different. We keep that heater turned off since we don't go in there on a daily basis. I wonder if we kept the door open, it would stay moderately warm.

u should put heaters till ur laundry is done or put clothes in washing machine and come from there .don;t stay there till all the laundy is over. u can come outside and go when u want to change water or change to dryer. and then come again outside the laundry room. by this way u don;t hate to do laundry in winter. as i have heater in my laundry room also, i don;t have any problem ,in doing laudry in winter.

Maybe you could try opening the door about an hour before you do the laundry. My laundry room is in the basement and while it is not as warm as the rest of the house it is not unbearable. Once I get the first load in the dryer though it becomes warmer from the heat of the dryer.

Why don't you turn the heater on on the days that you do laundry? It seems to me that heaters are there to heat the room so that we can do whatever we need to do in comfort. I think that someone has yet to devise the perfect 'predictive' heating/cooling system but, for heavens sake, heating systems are there to be our servants not our masters!
