Evenly heat and cool your home

How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

A good HVAC 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 find that your space isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the warmest and coolest Orrville days. That’s because there’s additional factors that impact the equation. Your registers, how your family runs your HVAC and other personal preferences can impact the temperatures you feel throughout your space. The experts at Daniel's Heating - Cooling & Electric are here to show you 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 house for blocked registers and air returns that are covered by objects, 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, heated or cooled air will be redirected to other rooms leaving certain rooms at incorrect temperatures.

Make Sure You Have Enough Insulation
If your home is lacking insulation in the attic, you may be losing heated air in the winter and permitting hot outside air in during the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or inadequately insulated attic could mean major temperature differences on separate levels of your home. Make sure you have adequate insulation and that it’s the correct kind of insulation for your type of home and the weather in Orrville.

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 actually happens is that the fan only runs when the heating or cooling kicks on. By putting your fan in the “On” position, you can help keep cooler and warmer air circulating throughout your home constantly and, therefore, keep the temperature more steady throughout your house.

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 run harder to do their job, and some rooms could end up hotter or colder than other rooms. The same is true for air leaks near 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 methods of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control. If you want more information about zoning options for your home, Daniel's Heating - Cooling & Electric can assist.
