How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

A good HVAC system means your house will consistently be the perfect temperature, right? That’s not always the case. Even with the best HVAC system, you may notice that your house isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the hottest and coldest Reinholds days. That’s because there’s additional factors that impact the equation. Your registers, how your household your HVAC and other personal preferences can impact the temperatures you feel throughout your house. The pros at County Line Mechanical LLC are here to share 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 home 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 be the culprit for uneven heating and cooling. If a register is blocked, the air that has been heated or cooled 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 might be losing heated air in 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 separate levels of your home. Look to see if you have adequate insulation and that it’s the right kind of insulation for your house and the environment in Reinholds.

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 necessary. What really 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 the air circulating throughout your home consistently and, therefore, keep the temperature more uniform throughout your house.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
When your air ducts have leaks or holes in them, they could spell trouble for your HVAC system. They’ll have to operate harder to do their job, and some rooms could end up colder or hotter than other areas. The same is true for air leaks near windows and doors in certain rooms. Luckily, repairing most air leaks is a simple process.

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 bigger investment than other approaches of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control. If you would like more information about zoning solutions for your home, County Line Mechanical LLC can assist.
