It can be a challenge to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the coldest days of winter. Keeping the rooms of your home are evenly heated is determined by several different factors. Luckily, there are also a lot things you can do to remedy 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 realize 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 draws out 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 performing small tasks like changing filters and more involved jobs like identifying potential issues 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 comfortable.
Don’t rely on Auto setting
A few rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more challenging to heat. Ensuring 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 through all your rooms and create a more even temperature.
