How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

A good cooling and heating system means your house will always 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 hottest and coldest Anaheim days. That’s because there’s more that goes into the equation. Your registers, how you run your HVAC and other user preferences can factor into the temperatures you feel throughout your home. The team at Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. are here to explain 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 furniture or curtains, 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 incorrect temperatures.

Make Sure You Have Enough Insulation
If your home doesn’t have sufficient insulation in the attic, you could 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 incorrectly insulated attic could end with major temperature differences on various levels of your home. Make sure you have sufficient insulation and that it’s the right kind of insulation for your type of home and the weather in Anaheim.

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 really 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 steady throughout your space.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
For ducts that 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 could end up colder or hotter than other rooms. 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 adjust 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 approaches of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control. If you would like more information about zoning possibilities for your home, Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. can help.
