How to Evenly Heat Your Home

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

Keep the areas around your cold air return vents clear

Not only does your furnace move hot air through your home to heat it, it pulls cooler air from your inside your home. If your cold air returns are obstructed, 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 running well by doing simpler tasks like changing filters and bigger jobs like identifying impending problems before they happen or repairing major issues like replacing a broken circuit board. No matter what maintenance or repairs need to be done, we’ll keep your home comfy.

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 circulating through all your rooms and create a more even temperature.
