How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home 10/06/2017A good cooling and heating 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 find that your house isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the warmest and coolest Dallas 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 home. The pros at Tri County Air Care LLC are here to show you 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 house for blocked registers and air returns that are covered by curtains or furniture, 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 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 throughout the winter and letting hot outside air throughout the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or incorrectly insulated attic could result in major temperature differences on different levels of your home. Make sure you have enough insulation and that it’s the appropriate kind of insulation for your house and the climate in Dallas. Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running Many people keep their HVAC fan set to “Auto” and assume that this means the fan will only run when required. 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 around your home at all times and, therefore, keep the temperature more steady throughout your house. Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks For ducts that 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 might end up colder or hotter than other areas. The same is true for air leaks around 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 fix how evenly your home is heated and cooled is have your existing HVAC system zoned. It’s absolutely 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.
