It can be a tough job to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the chilly days of winter. Whether the rooms throughout your home are evenly heated is determined by several different factors. Luckily, there are also a lot things you can do to correct the problem.
If your room is too hot, what should you do? Most people simply close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t understand is that blocking airflow to one room can throw off the balance of your system and end up reduce your energy efficiency.
So, what should you do instead? We have some ideas.
Keep the areas around your cold air return vents clear
Not only does your furnace move hot air through your home to heat it, it draws out cooler air from your inside your home. If your cold air returns are obstructed, your furnace can only do half its job. Keeping these vents clear will allow your furnace to operate as it should and help it regulate room temperatures better.
Regular maintenance is key
We can’t tell you enough times how important regular maintenance is to the proper and efficient operation of your heating and cooling system. Our experts can help keep your system running well by doing small tasks like changing filters and more in-depth jobs like identifying impending repairs before they happen or repairing major issues like replacing a broken circuit board. No matter what maintenance or repairs need to be done, we’ll keep your home comfortable.
Don’t rely on Auto setting
Certain rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more problematic to heat. Checking that your thermostat has the fan switch “On” instead of on “Auto” can help. When the fan is switched to “On,” your furnace will keep air flowing throughout your house and create a more even temperature.
