It can be a tough job to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the cold days of winter. Ensuring the rooms throughout your home are evenly heated hinges on many different factors. Luckily, there are also several things you can do to correct 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 move 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 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 in top shape by doing minor tasks like changing filters and more in-depth jobs like identifying impending problems 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 comfy.
Don’t rely on Auto setting
A few rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more challenging to heat. Checking that 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 moving throughout your house and create a more even temperature.
