It can be a challenge to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the chilly days of winter. Ensuring the rooms in your home are evenly heated is determined by several different factors. Luckily, there are also several things you can do to correct the problem.
If your room is too warm, what should you do? Most people just close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t understand is that doing this can throw off the balance of your system and actually reduce your energy efficiency.
So, what should you do instead? We have some suggestions.
Keep the areas around your cold air return vents clear
Not only does your furnace push hot air through your home to heat it, it pulls cooler air from your inside your home. If your cold air returns are blocked, your furnace can only do half its job. Keeping these vents clear will permit your furnace to operate correctly and help it regulate room temperatures better.
Regular maintenance is key
We can’t say enough how important regular maintenance is to the proper and efficient operation of your heating and cooling system. Our experts can help keep your system at peak performance by doing simpler 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 comfy.
Don’t rely on Auto setting
A few rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more difficult 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 through all your rooms and create a more even temperature.
