How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

Service

A good HVAC system means your space will constantly be the perfect temperature, right? That’s not always the case. Even with the best HVAC system, you may discover that your home isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the coldest and hottest East Bernard days. That’s because there’s several items that go into the equation. Your registers, how you run your HVAC and other user preferences can factor into the temperatures you feel throughout your house. The team at E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service are here to share some things that you can adjust to more evenly heat and cool your home without requiring heating and cooling service.

Check for Closed, Blocked, or Dirty Registers
Check your house for blocked registers and air returns that are covered by curtains or furniture, or that have dirt and debris built up dust and dirt on them. Blocked registers can be the culprit for uneven heating and cooling. If a register is blocked, heated or cooled air will be redirected to other rooms leaving certain rooms at unwanted temperatures.

Make Sure You Have Enough Insulation
If your home is lacking insulation in the attic, you might be losing heated air in the winter and allowing hot outside air throughout the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or improperly insulated attic could mean major temperature differences on different levels of your home. Look to see if you have adequate insulation and that it’s the appropriate kind of insulation for your home and the weather in East Bernard.

Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running
Many people keep their HVAC fan set to “Auto” and assume that this means the fan will only run when required. What truly happens is that the fan only runs when the heating or cooling kicks on. By leaving your fan in the “On” position, you can help keep the air circulating throughout your home at all times and, therefore, keep the temperature more even throughout your house.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
When your air ducts have leaks or holes in them, they could indicate trouble for your HVAC system. They’ll have to operate harder to do their job, and some rooms may end up hotter or colder than other parts of the house. The same is true for air leaks by windows and doors in certain rooms. Luckily, repairing most air leaks is a simple process.

Consider a Zoning System
Another thing you can do to fix how evenly your home is heated and cooled is have your existing HVAC system zoned. It’s absolutely more of a long-term project and a bigger investment than other methods of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control. If you would like more information about zoning possibilities for your home, E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service can assist.
