It can be a tough job to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the coldest days of winter. Ensuring the rooms of your home are evenly heated hinges on a number of different factors. Luckily, there are also quite a few things you can do to remedy the problem.
If your room is too stuffy, what do you do? Most people just close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t know is that doing this can throw off the balance of your system and actually 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 circulate hot air through your home to heat it, it removes cooler air from your inside your home. If your cold air returns are not clear, your furnace can’t fully perform its job. Keeping these vents clear will allow your furnace to operate as it should 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 bigger jobs like identifying imminent repairs 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
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 throughout your house and create a more even temperature.
