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. Keeping the rooms of your home are evenly heated is determined by many different factors. Luckily, there are also a lot things you can do to fix the problem.

If your room is too hot, what do you do? Most people merely 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 suggestions.

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 pulls 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 permit your furnace to operate properly 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 performing minor tasks like changing filters and more in-depth jobs like identifying potential problems before they happen or repairing major issues like replacing a broken circuit board. No matter what repairs need 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.
