How to Evenly Heat Your Home

It can be a tough job 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 is determined by several different factors. Luckily, there are also a lot things you can do to fix the problem.

If your room is too hot, what can you do? Most people merely 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 essentially 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 pulls cooler air from your inside your home. If your cold air returns are blocked, your furnace can’t fully perform its job. Keeping these vents clear will allow your furnace to operate correctly 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 at peak performance by performing minor tasks like changing filters and more in-depth jobs like identifying imminent repairs before they happen or repairing major issues like replacing a broken circuit board. No matter what maintenance or 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 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 circulating throughout your house and create a more even temperature.
