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 in your home are evenly heated depends on many different factors. Luckily, there are also a lot things you can do to fix the problem.
If your room is too stuffy, what should you do? Most people simply close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t understand is that closing off a vent 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 do 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 emphasize how important regular maintenance is to the proper and efficient operation of your heating and cooling system. Our experts can help keep your system at peak performance by doing minor tasks like changing filters and more involved jobs like identifying imminent problems 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 challenging to heat. Ensuring 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 moving through all your rooms and create a more even temperature.
