How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

A good cooling and heating system means your space will constantly be the perfect temperature, right? That’s not always the case. Even with a top-of-the line HVAC system, you may discover that your house isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the hottest and coldest Englewood days. That’s because there’s more that goes into the equation. Your registers, how you run your HVAC and other user preferences can factor into the temperatures you feel throughout your home. The experts at TemperaturePro® are here to show you 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 rooms for blocked registers and air returns that are covered by curtains or furniture, or that have accumulated dust and dirt on them. Blocked registers can cause a problem with uneven heating and cooling. If a register is blocked, the warm or cool air will be redirected to other rooms leaving certain rooms at undesirable temperatures.

Make Sure You Have Enough Insulation
If your home doesn’t have sufficient insulation in the attic, you could be losing heated air in the winter and allowing hot outside air in during the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or improperly insulated attic could result in major temperature differences on separate levels of your home. Check that you have enough insulation and that it’s the correct kind of insulation for your house and the environment in Englewood.

Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running
Many people keep their HVAC fan set to “Auto” and think 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 keeping your fan in the “On” position, you can help keep cooler and warmer air circulating throughout your home consistently and, therefore, keep the temperature more steady throughout your space.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
For ducts that have leaks or holes in them, they could signify trouble for your HVAC system. They’ll have to operate harder to do their job, and some rooms could end up hotter or colder than other areas. The same is true for air leaks near windows and doors in certain rooms. Luckily, repairing most air leaks is is fairly easy.

Consider a Zoning System
Another thing you can do to adjust 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 greater investment than other approaches of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control. If you want more information about zoning possibilities for your home, TemperaturePro® is here to help.
