How to Evenly Heat Your Home01/07/2015 It can be a real task to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the cold days of winter. Whether 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 hot, what should 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 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 pulls 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 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 at peak performance by doing minor tasks like changing filters and more involved jobs like identifying impending problems 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 Certain rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more problematic 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 from room to room and create a more even temperature.
