Rasulullah ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) is reported to have said: ” When a person recites this supplication, Allah ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) says to Jahannam: “Verily a servant of mine has sought refuge in me from you, bear testimony that I have granted him salvation from you”

(Ibn Sunni)

Here is a hadith that makes this clear.

Sayyiduna Abu Hurarah Radiyallahu Anhu reported that Rasulullah ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said: “ Jahannam complained to its Lord saying ;”Oh My Lord! Parts within me have devoured each other” So Allah subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) allowed it two breaths; one in summer and the other in winter. Therefore the extreme heat that you experience (on earth) is caused by the heat of Jahannam and the severe cold too is due to the Az-zamhareer (the extreme cold section of Jahannam)

 (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith 537, Sahih Muslim).

This article on Ilmgate explains the cold section of hell in detail.
