How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

Service

A good cooling and heating system means your home will always be the perfect temperature, right? That’s not always the case. Even with the greatest HVAC system, you may notice that your house isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the coldest and hottest Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas days. That’s because there’s additional factors that impact the equation. Your registers, how your household your HVAC and other personal preferences can factor into the temperatures you feel throughout your house. The experts at Innovative Mechanical, LLC 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 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 undesirable 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 end with major temperature differences on various levels of your home. Make sure you have enough insulation and that it’s the right kind of insulation for your home and the environment in Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas.

Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running
Many households keep their HVAC fan set to “Auto” and assume that this means the fan will only run when it’s needed. What truly happens is that the fan only runs when the heating or cooling kicks on. By keeping your fan in the “On” position, you can help keep the air circulating through your home consistently and, therefore, keep the temperature more steady 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 run harder to do their job, and some rooms might end up cooler or warmer 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 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 larger investment than other approaches of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control. If you want more information about zoning possibilities for your home, Innovative Mechanical, LLC can assist.
