How to Evenly Heat Your Home

It can be a tough job to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the coldest days of winter. Whether the rooms of your home are evenly heated depends on several different factors. Luckily, there are also quite a few things you can do to correct the problem.

If your room is too stuffy, what can you do? Most people simply close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t know is that blocking airflow to one room can throw off the balance of your system and essentially 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 circulate 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 permit your furnace to operate as it should 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 at peak performance by doing small tasks like changing filters and more in-depth jobs like identifying imminent issues before they happen or repairing major issues like replacing a broken circuit board. No matter what needs 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 problematic 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 flowing throughout your house and create a more even temperature.
