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 is determined by several different factors. Luckily, there are also a lot things you can do to correct the problem.
If your room is too stuffy, what do you do? Most people merely close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t know is that closing off a vent can throw off the balance of your system and end up reduce your energy efficiency.
So, what should you do instead? We have some suggestions.
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 draws out cooler air from your inside your home. If your cold air returns are not clear, your furnace can only do half 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 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 running well by doing minor 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 repairs need to be done, we’ll keep your home comfy.
Don’t rely on Auto setting
Some rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more problematic 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 flowing from room to room and create a more even temperature.
