It can be a tough job to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the chilly days of winter. Keeping the rooms in 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 hot, what can you do? Most people simply close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t know is that closing off a vent 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 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 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 in top shape by performing minor tasks like changing filters and more in-depth jobs like identifying impending issues 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 cozy.
Don’t rely on Auto setting
Certain rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more difficult 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 through all your rooms and create a more even temperature.
