Evenly heat and cool your home

How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

A good HVAC system means your house will constantly be the perfect temperature, right? That’s not always the case. Even with a top-of-the line HVAC system, you may find that your space isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the hottest and coldest San Angelo days. That’s because there’s several items that go into the equation. Your registers, how your family runs your HVAC and other user preferences can factor into the temperatures you feel throughout your space. The team at Air-Dynamics Inc are here to explain some things that you can adjust to more evenly heat and cool your home without requiring heating and cooling service.

Check for Closed, Blocked, or Dirty Registers
Check your home for blocked registers and air returns that are covered by furniture or curtains, or that have acquired debris and dirt dust and dirt on them. Blocked registers can be a cause uneven heating and cooling. If a register is blocked, the warm or cool air will be redirected to other rooms leaving certain rooms at unwanted temperatures.

Make Sure You Have Enough Insulation
If your home doesn’t have sufficient insulation in the attic, you might be losing heated air during the winter and allowing hot outside air through the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or improperly insulated attic could mean major temperature differences on various levels of your home. Look to see if you have adequate insulation and that it’s the right kind of insulation for your home and the weather in San Angelo.

Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running
Lots of people keep their HVAC fan set to “Auto” and think this means the fan will only run when necessary. What really happens is that the fan only runs when the heating or cooling kicks on. By putting your fan in the “On” position, you can help keep heated and cooled air circulating through your home at all times and, therefore, keep the temperature more steady throughout your home.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
When your air ducts have leaks or holes in them, they could spell trouble for your HVAC system. They’ll have to work harder to do their job, and some rooms might end up hotter or colder than other rooms. The same is true for air leaks by windows and doors in certain rooms. Luckily, repairing most air leaks is a simple process.

Consider a Zoning System
Another thing you can do to improve how evenly your home is heated and cooled is have your existing HVAC system zoned. It’s definitely more of a long-term project and a bigger investment than other means of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control. If you would like more information about zoning solutions for your home, Air-Dynamics Inc can assist.
