Evenly heat and cool your home

How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

A good cooling and heating system means your house will always 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 warmest and coolest Shelby Township days. That’s because there’s several items that go into the equation. Your registers, how your household your HVAC and other operator preferences can factor into the temperatures you feel throughout your space. The team at Mr. Air Repair are here to share some things that you can adjust to more evenly heat and cool your home without needing heating and cooling service.

Check for Closed, Blocked, or Dirty Registers
Check your home for blocked registers and air returns that are covered by furniture or curtains, or that have accumulated dust and dirt on them. Blocked registers can be the culprit for uneven heating and cooling. If a register is blocked, the warm or cool 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 could be losing heated air during the winter and allowing hot outside air throughout the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or inadequately insulated attic could end with major temperature differences on various levels of your home. Make sure you have sufficient insulation and that it’s the appropriate kind of insulation for your house and the weather in Shelby Township .

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 really 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 cooler and warmer air circulating throughout your home consistently and, therefore, keep the temperature more even throughout your space.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
When your air ducts have leaks or holes in them, they could signify trouble for your HVAC system. They’ll have to run harder to do their job, and some rooms might 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 improve how evenly your home is heated and cooled is have your existing HVAC system zoned. It’s certainly more of a long-term project and a greater investment than other means of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control. If you are interested in more information about zoning solutions for your home, Mr. Air Repair can assist.
