How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

A good heating and cooling system means your home will always be the perfect temperature, right? That’s not always the case. Even with the best HVAC system, you may discover that your home isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the coldest and hottest Bossier City days. That’s because there’s more that goes into the equation. Your registers, how your household your HVAC and other personal preferences can influence the temperatures you feel throughout your space. The team at Central Aire Heating & A/C 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 objects, or that have acquired debris and dirt dust and dirt on them. Blocked registers can be a cause 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 incorrect temperatures.

Make Sure You Have Enough Insulation
If your home doesn’t have enough insulation in the attic, you could be losing heated air in the winter and allowing hot outside air in during the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or improperly insulated attic could mean major temperature differences on various levels of your home. Look to see if you have adequate insulation and that it’s the right kind of insulation for your home and the weather in Bossier City.

Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running
Lots of people keep their HVAC fan set to “Auto” and believe this means the fan will only run when necessary. What really 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 the air circulating through your home at all times and, therefore, keep the temperature more uniform throughout your house.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
When your air 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 parts of the house. The same is true for air leaks by 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 certainly more of a long-term project and a larger investment than other methods of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control.
