How to Evenly Heat Your Home

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 depends on many different factors. Luckily, there are also quite a few things you can do to correct the problem.

If your room is too hot, what can you do? Most people just close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t know 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 tips.

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 removes cooler air from your inside your home. If your cold air returns are not clear, 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 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 doing simpler tasks like changing filters and bigger jobs like identifying imminent 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 comfortable.

Don’t rely on Auto setting

Certain rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more difficult 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 moving through all your rooms and create a more even temperature.
