How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

Service

A good heating and cooling system means your space will constantly be the perfect temperature, right? That’s not always the case. Even with the greatest HVAC system, you may find that your home isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the warmest and coolest Marshfield days. That’s because there’s more that goes into the equation. Your registers, how you run your HVAC and other operator preferences can factor into the temperatures you feel throughout your home. The pros at House of Heating Incorporated are here to share some things that you can adjust to more evenly heat and cool your home without needing heating and cooling service.

Check for Closed, Blocked, or Dirty Registers
Check your house for blocked registers and air returns that are covered by curtains or furniture, or that have dirt and debris built up dust and dirt on them. Blocked registers can be a cause uneven heating and cooling. If a register is blocked, heated or cooled air will be redirected to other rooms leaving certain rooms at undesirable temperatures.

Make Sure You Have Enough Insulation
If your home doesn’t have sufficient insulation in the attic, you could be losing heated air during the winter and allowing hot outside air throughout the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or inadequately insulated attic could end with major temperature differences on various levels of your home. Make sure you have adequate insulation and that it’s the correct kind of insulation for your home and the environment in Marshfield.

Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running
Many households keep their HVAC fan set to “Auto” and assume that this means the fan will only run when it’s needed. What really happens is that the fan only runs when the heating or cooling kicks on. By keeping your fan in the “On” position, you can help keep cooler and warmer air circulating throughout your home consistently and, therefore, keep the temperature more even throughout your space.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
When your air ducts have leaks or holes in them, they could spell trouble for your HVAC system. They’ll have to work harder to do their job, and some rooms could end up hotter or colder than other parts of the house. The same is true for air leaks near windows and doors in certain rooms. Luckily, repairing most air leaks is is fairly easy.

Consider a Zoning System
Another thing you can do to fix how evenly your home is heated and cooled is have your existing HVAC system zoned. It’s absolutely more of a long-term project and a larger investment than other approaches of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control. If you are interested in more information about zoning possibilities for your home, House of Heating Incorporated is here to help.
