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 the best HVAC system, you may notice that your home isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the warmest and coolest Booneville days. That’s because there’s additional factors that impact 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 Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC are here to share 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 incorrect temperatures.

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

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 cooler and warmer air circulating throughout your home at all times and, therefore, keep the temperature more even throughout your house.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
For ducts that 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 cooler or warmer than other rooms. The same is true for air leaks around 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 certainly more of a long-term project and a larger investment than other means of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control. If you want more information about zoning options for your home, Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC can assist.
