How to Evenly Heat Your Home

January 07, 2015

It can be a real task to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the chilly days of winter. Ensuring the rooms throughout your home are evenly heated depends on a number of different factors. Luckily, there are also a lot things you can do to remedy 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 actually 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 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 blocked, your furnace can only do half its job. Keeping these vents clear will permit 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 in top shape by performing simpler 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 needs to be done, we’ll keep your home cozy.

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 through all your rooms and create a more even temperature.
