How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

Service

A good heating and cooling 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 home isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the coldest and hottest Royse City days. That’s because there’s more that goes into the equation. Your registers, how your household your HVAC and other personal preferences can impact the temperatures you feel throughout your house. The team at B&W Services 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 dirt and debris built up dust and dirt on them. Blocked registers can be a cause 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 letting hot outside air in during the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or improperly insulated attic could mean major temperature differences on various levels of your home. Make sure you have adequate insulation and that it’s the right kind of insulation for your home and the environment in Royse City.

Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running
Lots of people keep their HVAC fan set to “Auto” and believe this means the fan will only run when necessary. 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 heated and cooled air circulating around your home consistently and, therefore, keep the temperature more uniform throughout your house.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
When your air ducts 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 may end up cooler or warmer than other areas. The same is true for air leaks around windows and doors in certain rooms. Luckily, repairing most air leaks is isn’t difficult.

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 definitely more of a long-term project and a larger investment than other means of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control. If you want more information about zoning options for your home, B&W Services can assist.
