How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home 10/06/2017A good HVAC system means your home will consistently 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 house isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the coldest and hottest Stuart days. That’s because there’s several items that go into the equation. Your registers, how your family runs your HVAC and other personal preferences can factor into the temperatures you feel throughout your house. The pros at Nisair Air Conditioning are here to share 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 accumulated dust and dirt on them. Blocked registers can be the culprit for uneven heating and cooling. If a register is blocked, the warm or cool air will be redirected to other rooms leaving certain rooms at incorrect temperatures. Make Sure You Have Enough Insulation If your home doesn’t have sufficient insulation in the attic, you may 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 result in major temperature differences on different levels of your home. Make sure you have adequate insulation and that it’s the right kind of insulation for your home and the weather in Stuart. Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running Many people keep their HVAC fan set to “Auto” and believe 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 heated and cooled air circulating through your home constantly and, therefore, keep the temperature more even throughout your house. 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 may end up colder or hotter than other rooms. The same is true for air leaks near 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 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 approaches of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control.
