How to Evenly Heat Your Home01/07/2015 It can be a tough job to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the coldest days of winter. Whether the rooms of your home are evenly heated hinges on a number of different factors. Luckily, there are also several things you can do to fix 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 realize is that blocking airflow to one room can throw off the balance of your system and actually 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 do 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 at peak performance by performing small tasks like changing filters and more in-depth jobs like identifying imminent issues 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 comfy. Don’t rely on Auto setting A few rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more difficult 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 flowing from room to room and create a more even temperature.
