How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

Service

A good cooling and heating system means your space will consistently be the perfect temperature, right? That’s not always the case. Even with the greatest HVAC system, you may notice that your house isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the warmest and coolest Greencastle days. That’s because there’s more that goes into the equation. Your registers, how your household your HVAC and other operator preferences can factor into the temperatures you feel throughout your house. The experts at Premier HVAC Services LLC 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 home for blocked registers and air returns that are covered by furniture or curtains, or that have dirt and debris built up 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 sufficient insulation in the attic, you could be losing heated air in the winter and permitting hot outside air throughout the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or incorrectly insulated attic could end with major temperature differences on different levels of your home. Check that you have enough insulation and that it’s the right kind of insulation for your type of home and the climate in Greencastle.

Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running
Lots of 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 keeping 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 space.

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 might end up hotter or colder than other parts of the house. The same is true for air leaks around 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 means of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control. If you would like more information about zoning solutions for your home, Premier HVAC Services LLC is here to help.
