It can be a real task to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the cold days of winter. Whether the rooms of your home are evenly heated depends on a number of different factors. Luckily, there are also a lot things you can do to remedy the problem.
If your room is too warm, what do you do? Most people simply close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t realize is that blocking airflow to one room 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 move hot air through your home to heat it, it removes 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 properly 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 performing simpler tasks like changing filters and bigger jobs like identifying potential repairs before they happen or repairing major issues like replacing a broken circuit board. No matter what repairs need to be done, we’ll keep your home cozy.
Don’t rely on Auto setting
Certain rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more challenging 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 moving throughout your house and create a more even temperature.
