How to Evenly Heat Your Home01/07/2015 It can be a real task to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the cold days of winter. Ensuring 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 hot, what can you do? Most people simply close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t understand is that doing this 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 circulate hot air through your home to heat it, it removes 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 allow your furnace to operate correctly 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 in top shape by completing minor tasks like changing filters and more involved jobs like identifying potential 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 cozy. Don’t rely on Auto setting Certain rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more difficult 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 circulating through all your rooms and create a more even temperature.
