How many fans do you have, where are they in your case, and which are blowing in and which are blowing out? It may just not be getting the same air circulation as it was in the other room.

It could just be that the air density in your current room isn't as high as your old room.

To test this close your door and window and hold your hand to edges of the door, if you feel air being pulled into the room then the air density isn't as high.

Slide open a window to ensure better air circulation for the entire room.
