How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

A good cooling and heating system means your home will consistently be the perfect temperature, right? That’s not always the case. Even with a top-of-the line HVAC system, you may notice that your space isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the hottest and coldest Groves days. That’s because there’s more that goes into the equation. Your registers, how your family runs your HVAC and other operator preferences can factor into the temperatures you feel throughout your space. The pros at Air Solutions, Inc are here to share some things that you can adjust to more evenly heat and cool your home without calling for heating and cooling service.

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

Make Sure You Have Enough Insulation
If your home doesn’t have enough insulation in the attic, you may be losing heated air throughout the winter and letting hot outside air in during the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or inadequately insulated attic could result in major temperature differences on different levels of your home. Check that you have adequate insulation and that it’s the appropriate kind of insulation for your type of home and the environment in Groves.

Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running
Many households 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 through your home at all times and, therefore, keep the temperature more uniform throughout your house.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
For ducts that have leaks or holes in them, they could spell trouble for your HVAC system. They’ll have to run harder to do their job, and some rooms might end up cooler or warmer 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 definitely more of a long-term project and a bigger investment than other approaches of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control. If you are interested in more information about zoning options for your home, Air Solutions, Inc is here to help.
