How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

A good cooling and heating system means your home will constantly be the perfect temperature, right? That’s not always the case. Even with a top-of-the line HVAC system, you may notice that your home isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the warmest and coolest Boynton Beach days. That’s because there’s several items that go into the equation. Your registers, how your household your HVAC and other operator preferences can impact the temperatures you feel throughout your house. The experts at A2Z Air Inc 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 rooms for blocked registers and air returns that are covered by furniture or curtains, or that have acquired debris and dirt dust and dirt on them. Blocked registers can be the culprit for uneven heating and cooling. If a register is blocked, heated or cooled air will be redirected to other rooms leaving certain rooms at unwanted temperatures.

Make Sure You Have Enough Insulation
If your home is lacking insulation in the attic, you could be losing heated air throughout the winter and permitting hot outside air throughout the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or inadequately insulated attic could mean major temperature differences on separate levels of your home. Check that you have sufficient insulation and that it’s the appropriate kind of insulation for your home and the environment in Boynton Beach.

Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running
Many people keep their HVAC fan set to “Auto” and assume that this means the fan will only run when it’s needed. What actually 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 cooler and warmer air circulating throughout your home consistently and, therefore, keep the temperature more even throughout your house.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
When your air ducts have leaks or holes in them, they could signify trouble for your HVAC system. They’ll have to operate harder to do their job, and some rooms might end up cooler or warmer than other rooms. The same is true for air leaks by windows and doors in certain rooms. Luckily, repairing most air leaks is is fairly easy.

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 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.
