Is it possible to trigger the phone to search for network, i.e find the best/closest tower again?

I don't want it to be with airplane mode, since I'm usually using the WiFi at the moment I need it.

The situation is, that when moving in the house the cellular reception can be fine, but when going to my room the reception becomes very poor. If in such situation I turn on and off airplane mode, usually the phone connects again but with much better reception.

Ideally, I want to be able to change such thing with an NFC tag I'll locate by my room, but if it's not possible, also another method might be OK.
