How to Evenly Heat Your Home

It can be a tough job to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the cold days of winter. Keeping the rooms throughout your home are evenly heated hinges on a number of different factors. Luckily, there are also a lot things you can do to correct the problem.

If your room is too stuffy, what should you do? Most people merely close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t realize is that blocking airflow to one room can throw off the balance of your system and actually 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 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 running well by doing minor tasks like changing filters and more in-depth jobs like identifying impending problems 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 challenging 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.
