How to Evenly Heat Your Home01/07/2015 It can be a challenge to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the cold days of winter. Ensuring the rooms in your home are evenly heated depends on many different factors. Luckily, there are also several 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 understand is that blocking airflow to one room 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 move 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 running well by completing simpler tasks like changing filters and more involved jobs like identifying imminent repairs 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 Certain 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 circulating from room to room and create a more even temperature.
