How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

A good heating and cooling 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 discover that your space isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the coldest and hottest Kingsville days. That’s because there’s several items that go into the equation. Your registers, how you run your HVAC and other personal preferences can influence the temperatures you feel throughout your home. The team at Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC are here to share 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 objects, or that have accumulated dust and dirt on them. Blocked registers can cause a problem with 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 undesirable temperatures.

Make Sure You Have Enough Insulation
If your home is lacking insulation in the attic, you might 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 end with major temperature differences on different levels of your home. Look to see if you have adequate insulation and that it’s the right kind of insulation for your type of home and the environment in Kingsville.

Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running
Many households keep their HVAC fan set to “Auto” and assume that 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 the air circulating throughout your home consistently and, therefore, keep the temperature more steady throughout your space.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
When your air ducts 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 by 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 fix 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 bigger 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, Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC can assist.
