How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home 10/06/2017A good cooling and heating system means your home will always 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 home isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the coldest and hottest Huntsville days. That’s because there’s more that goes into the equation. Your registers, how your household your HVAC and other personal preferences can influence the temperatures you feel throughout your house. The pros at All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc are here to show you 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 home for blocked registers and air returns that are covered by furniture or curtains, 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 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 doesn’t have sufficient insulation in the attic, you could be losing heated air throughout the winter and letting hot outside air throughout the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or improperly insulated attic could end with major temperature differences on various levels of your home. Look to see if you have sufficient insulation and that it’s the correct kind of insulation for your home and the climate in Huntsville. 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 it’s needed. 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 cooler and warmer air circulating around your home at all times and, therefore, keep the temperature more even throughout your home. 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 work harder to do their job, and some rooms could end up cooler or warmer than other areas. The same is true for air leaks by 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 bigger investment than other approaches of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control.
