How to Evenly Heat Your Home

Heating

It can be a real task to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the coldest days of winter. Ensuring the rooms of your home are evenly heated hinges on many different factors. Luckily, there are also quite a few things you can do to remedy 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 blocking airflow to one room can throw off the balance of your system and end up 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 fully perform its job. Keeping these vents clear will allow your furnace to operate properly and help it regulate room temperatures better.

Regular maintenance is key

We can’t say enough 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 minor tasks like changing filters and bigger jobs like identifying impending issues 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 cozy.

Don’t rely on Auto setting

A few rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more difficult to heat. Making sure 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 from room to room and create a more even temperature.
