How to Evenly Heat Your Home

It can be a challenge to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the chilly days of winter. Whether the rooms of your home are evenly heated hinges on many different factors. Luckily, there are also several things you can do to remedy the problem.

If your room is too stuffy, what should you do? Most people just 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 end up 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 obstructed, 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 emphasize 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 doing simpler tasks like changing filters and more in-depth jobs like identifying impending 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 cozy.

Don’t rely on Auto setting

Some rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more challenging 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.
