It can be a challenge to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the chilly days of winter. Keeping the rooms throughout your home are evenly heated hinges on several different factors. Luckily, there are also several things you can do to fix 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 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 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 removes 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 allow 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 running well by completing small tasks like changing filters and bigger jobs like identifying impending issues before they happen or repairing major issues like replacing a broken circuit board. No matter what needs to be done, we’ll keep your home comfy.
Don’t rely on Auto setting
Certain 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 moving through all your rooms and create a more even temperature.
