How to Evenly Heat Your Home

January 07, 2015

It can be a challenge to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the coldest days of winter. Ensuring the rooms in your home are evenly heated hinges on many different factors. Luckily, there are also a lot things you can do to remedy 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 doing this can throw off the balance of your system and end up reduce your energy efficiency.

So, what should you do instead? We have some suggestions.

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 do its job. Keeping these vents clear will allow your furnace to operate as it should 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 simpler tasks like changing filters and more involved jobs like identifying impending 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 cozy.

Don’t rely on Auto setting

Some rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more challenging 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.
