Evenly heat and cool your home

How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

A good HVAC system means your space will consistently be the perfect temperature, right? That’s not always the case. Even with the greatest HVAC system, you may find that your home isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the warmest and coolest Marshall days. That’s because there’s additional factors that impact the equation. Your registers, how you run your HVAC and other personal preferences can influence the temperatures you feel throughout your house. The pros at All Elements Heating & Air 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 objects, 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 air that has been heated or cooled will be redirected to other rooms leaving certain rooms at undesirable 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 allowing hot outside air throughout the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or improperly insulated attic could mean major temperature differences on separate levels of your home. Check that you have sufficient insulation and that it’s the correct kind of insulation for your home and the climate in Marshall.

Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running
Many households keep their HVAC fan set to “Auto” and believe this means the fan will only run when required. What actually 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 consistently and, therefore, keep the temperature more even throughout your space.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
If your ducts have leaks or holes in them, they could indicate trouble for your HVAC system. They’ll have to run harder to do their job, and some rooms might end up hotter or colder than other rooms. The same is true for air leaks around windows and doors in certain rooms. Luckily, repairing most air leaks is isn’t difficult.

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 means of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control. If you would like more information about zoning options for your home, All Elements Heating & Air LLC can help.
