How to Evenly Heat Your Home01/07/2015 It can be a tough job to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the cold days of winter. Whether the rooms of your home are evenly heated hinges on a number of different factors. Luckily, there are also quite a few 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 realize is that closing off a vent 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 push hot air through your home to heat it, it removes cooler air from your inside your home. If your cold air returns are not clear, your furnace can only do half 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 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 running well by completing simpler tasks like changing filters and more involved jobs like identifying imminent problems 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 comfortable. Don’t rely on Auto setting Some rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more problematic 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 from room to room and create a more even temperature.
