It can be a challenge to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the cold days of winter. Whether the rooms in your home are evenly heated hinges on many different factors. Luckily, there are also several things you can do to remedy the problem.
If your room is too hot, what should you do? Most people merely close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t understand is that closing off a vent can throw off the balance of your system and actually reduce your energy efficiency.
So, what should you do instead? We have some tips.
Keep the areas around your cold air return vents clear
Not only does your furnace circulate hot air through your home to heat it, it pulls cooler air from your inside your home. If your cold air returns are obstructed, your furnace can’t fully perform its job. Keeping these vents clear will permit 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 at peak performance by completing minor tasks like changing filters and more involved jobs like identifying potential 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
Some 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 through all your rooms and create a more even temperature.
