How to Evenly Heat Your Home

January 07, 2015

It can be a challenge to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the chilly days of winter. Keeping the rooms of your home are evenly heated hinges on many different factors. Luckily, there are also several things you can do to fix the problem.

If your room is too hot, what do you do? Most people simply close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t realize is that blocking airflow to one room can throw off the balance of your system and actually 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 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 allow your furnace to operate correctly and help it regulate room temperatures better.

Regular maintenance is key

We can’t emphasize 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 bigger jobs like identifying potential issues 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 comfy.

Don’t rely on Auto setting

Some rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more problematic 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 moving from room to room and create a more even temperature.
