How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home 10/06/2017A good cooling and heating 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 home isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the hottest and coldest Greenville days. That’s because there’s more that goes into the equation. Your registers, how your household your HVAC and other operator preferences can influence the temperatures you feel throughout your house. The experts at Ken Parker Service Inc 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 rooms for blocked registers and air returns that are covered by furniture or curtains, or that have dirt and debris built up dust and dirt on them. Blocked registers can be a cause uneven heating and cooling. If a register is blocked, heated or cooled air will be redirected to other rooms leaving certain rooms at unwanted temperatures. Make Sure You Have Enough Insulation If your home doesn’t have enough insulation in the attic, you might be losing heated air throughout the winter and allowing 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 various levels of your home. Make sure you have adequate insulation and that it’s the correct kind of insulation for your home and the climate in Greenville. Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running Lots of people keep their HVAC fan set to “Auto” and think this means the fan will only run when necessary. What truly 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 consistently and, therefore, keep the temperature more even throughout your space. 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 fix how evenly your home is heated and cooled is have your existing HVAC system zoned. It’s certainly more of a long-term project and a bigger investment than other means of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control.
