How to Evenly Heat Your Home

It can be a real task 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 is determined by many different factors. Luckily, there are also a lot things you can do to correct the problem.

If your room is too warm, what can you do? Most people merely 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 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 blocked, your furnace can’t fully perform 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 doing minor tasks like changing filters and more involved jobs like identifying potential 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 comfortable.

Don’t rely on Auto setting

A few rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more challenging 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.
