It can be a challenge to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the chilly days of winter. Keeping the rooms of your home are evenly heated is determined by many different factors. Luckily, there are also quite a few things you can do to fix the problem.
If your room is too warm, what do you do? Most people merely 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 ideas.
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 draws out cooler air from your inside your home. If your cold air returns are not clear, your furnace can’t do 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 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 in top shape by performing small tasks like changing filters and more involved jobs like identifying potential problems 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 cozy.
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 circulating throughout your house and create a more even temperature.
