How to Evenly Heat Your Home

It can be a challenge to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the cold days of winter. Keeping the rooms of your home are evenly heated hinges on a number of different factors. Luckily, there are also quite a few things you can do to remedy the problem.

If your room is too warm, what can you do? Most people just close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t realize is that closing off a vent can throw off the balance of your system and end up 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 draws out 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 allow your furnace to operate properly and help it regulate room temperatures better.

Regular maintenance is key

We can’t tell you enough times how important regular maintenance is to the proper and efficient operation of your heating and cooling system. Our experts can help keep your system in top shape by completing small tasks like changing filters and bigger jobs like identifying potential repairs 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 comfortable.

Don’t rely on Auto setting

Some 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 flowing from room to room and create a more even temperature.
