How to Evenly Heat Your Home

It can be a challenge to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the chilly days of winter. Ensuring the rooms in your home are evenly heated depends on many different factors. Luckily, there are also several things you can do to fix the problem.

If your room is too stuffy, what do you do? Most people merely close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t know is that closing off a vent can throw off the balance of your system and essentially 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 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 do 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 completing simpler tasks like changing filters and bigger jobs like identifying imminent repairs 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

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 moving throughout your house and create a more even temperature.
