How to Evenly Heat Your Home

January 07, 2015

It can be a tough job 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 several different factors. Luckily, there are also several things you can do to correct the problem.

If your room is too warm, what should you do? Most people merely close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t realize is that doing this 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 push 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 completing small 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 cozy.

Don’t rely on Auto setting

Some rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more problematic 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 flowing through all your rooms and create a more even temperature.
