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 chilly days of winter. Ensuring the rooms of your home are evenly heated hinges on several different factors. Luckily, there are also quite a few things you can do to remedy the problem.

If your room is too warm, what do you do? Most people simply close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t understand 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 tips.

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 not clear, your furnace can only do half 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 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 completing minor tasks like changing filters and more in-depth jobs like identifying impending 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 comfy.

Don’t rely on Auto setting

A few rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more difficult 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 circulating through all your rooms and create a more even temperature.
