How to Evenly Heat Your Home

It can be a tough job to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the coldest days of winter. Whether the rooms throughout your home are evenly heated is determined by a number of different factors. Luckily, there are also several things you can do to fix the problem.

If your room is too hot, what do you do? Most people merely close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t understand is that doing this can throw off the balance of your system and end up reduce your energy efficiency.

So, what should you do instead? We have some tips.

Keep the areas around your cold air return vents clear

Not only does your furnace move hot air through your home to heat it, it removes cooler air from your inside your home. If your cold air returns are obstructed, your furnace can’t do its job. Keeping these vents clear will permit your furnace to operate properly and help it regulate room temperatures better.

Don’t rely on Auto setting

Some rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more difficult to heat. Checking that your thermostat has the fan switch “On” instead of on “Auto” can help. When the fan is switched to “On,” your furnace will keep air moving from room to room and create a more even temperature.
