How to Evenly Heat Your Home

It can be a real task to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the coldest days of winter. Whether the rooms of your home are evenly heated depends on a number of different factors. Luckily, there are also a lot things you can do to correct the problem.

If your room is too warm, what can you do? Most people just close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t know is that doing this can throw off the balance of your system and end up reduce your energy efficiency.

So, what should you do instead? We have some suggestions.

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 pulls cooler air from your inside your home. If your cold air returns are blocked, your furnace can’t do its job. Keeping these vents clear will permit your furnace to operate properly and help it regulate room temperatures better.

Regular maintenance is key

Don’t rely on Auto setting

Certain rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more challenging to heat. Making sure 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 circulating through all your rooms and create a more even temperature.
