It can be a tough job to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the coldest days of winter. Ensuring the rooms throughout your home are evenly heated depends on several different factors. Luckily, there are also quite a few things you can do to correct the problem.
If your room is too warm, what should you do? Most people simply close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t understand is that blocking airflow to one room can throw off the balance of your system and essentially 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 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 permit your furnace to operate properly 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 minor tasks like changing filters and more involved 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 comfortable.
Don’t rely on Auto setting
A few rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more difficult to heat. Making sure 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 throughout your house and create a more even temperature.
