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 in your home are evenly heated is determined by several 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 just 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 blocked, your furnace can’t do its job. Keeping these vents clear will permit 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 in top shape by completing small tasks like changing filters and more in-depth jobs like identifying potential problems 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 comfortable. Don’t rely on Auto setting A few rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more difficult 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 moving through all your rooms and create a more even temperature.
