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 a top-of-the line HVAC system, you may discover that your home isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the hottest and coldest Westminster days. That’s because there’s more that goes into the equation. Your registers, how your household your HVAC and other operator preferences can factor into the temperatures you feel throughout your home. The team at True Heating & Cooling 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 home for blocked registers and air returns that are covered by curtains or furniture, or that have accumulated dust and dirt on them. Blocked registers can be a cause uneven heating and cooling. If a register is blocked, the warm or cool air will be redirected to other rooms leaving certain rooms at unwanted temperatures.

Make Sure You Have Enough Insulation
If your home doesn’t have sufficient insulation in the attic, you might be losing heated air during the winter and letting 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 different levels of your home. Look to see if you have enough insulation and that it’s the correct kind of insulation for your house and the environment in Westminster.

Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running
Many people keep their HVAC fan set to “Auto” and think 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 heated and cooled air circulating throughout your home consistently and, therefore, keep the temperature more even throughout your home.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
If your 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 may 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 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 methods of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control. If you would like more information about zoning solutions for your home, True Heating & Cooling can help.
