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 in your home are evenly heated is determined by several different factors. Luckily, there are also a lot things you can do to correct the problem. If your room is too stuffy, what should you do? Most people just close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t understand 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 tips. 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 not clear, your furnace can’t fully perform its job. Keeping these vents clear will allow your furnace to operate correctly 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 simpler tasks like changing filters and more involved jobs like identifying potential problems before they happen or repairing major issues like replacing a broken circuit board. No matter what needs 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 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 throughout your house and create a more even temperature.
