How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

Service

A good cooling and heating system means your space will consistently be the perfect temperature, right? That’s not always the case. Even with the greatest HVAC system, you may find that your house isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the coldest and hottest Tomball days. That’s because there’s more that goes into the equation. Your registers, how your household your HVAC and other user preferences can influence the temperatures you feel throughout your space. The experts at Premium Air Services LLC are here to show you some things that you can adjust to more evenly heat and cool your home without requiring 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 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, heated or cooled air will be redirected to other rooms leaving certain rooms at undesirable temperatures.

Make Sure You Have Enough Insulation
If your home is lacking insulation in the attic, you might be losing heated air in the winter and letting hot outside air throughout 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. Check that you have sufficient insulation and that it’s the correct kind of insulation for your type of home and the climate in Tomball.

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 required. What really happens is that the fan only runs when the heating or cooling kicks on. By keeping 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 steady throughout your home.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
If your ducts have leaks or holes in them, they could indicate 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 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 fix 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 greater investment than other approaches of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control. If you want more information about zoning solutions for your home, Premium Air Services LLC can help.
