It can be a challenge to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the chilly days of winter. Keeping the rooms in your home are evenly heated hinges on several different factors. Luckily, there are also several things you can do to remedy the problem.
If your room is too hot, what should you do? Most people merely close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t know is that closing off a vent can throw off the balance of your system and end up reduce your energy efficiency.
So, what should you do instead? We have some ideas.
Keep the areas around your cold air return vents clear
Not only does your furnace circulate hot air through your home to heat it, it removes cooler air from your inside your home. If your cold air returns are obstructed, your furnace can only do half its job. Keeping these vents clear will permit your furnace to operate correctly and help it regulate room temperatures better.
Regular maintenance is key

Our experts can help keep your system in top shape by completing simpler tasks like changing filters and more involved jobs like identifying potential problems before they happen or repairing major issues like replacing a broken circuit board.

Don’t rely on Auto setting
Certain rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more problematic to heat. Checking that your thermostat has the fan switch “On” instead of on “Auto” can help. When the fan is switched to “On,” your furnace will keep air moving from room to room and create a more even temperature.
