How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

A good cooling and heating system means your home will always 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 house isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the warmest and coolest Denton days. That’s because there’s additional factors that impact the equation. Your registers, how you run your HVAC and other personal preferences can factor into the temperatures you feel throughout your space. The pros at Oak Point Heating and Air LLC 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 rooms 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 a cause 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 doesn’t have enough insulation in the attic, you might be losing heated air in the winter and allowing hot outside air in during the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or incorrectly insulated attic could result in major temperature differences on different levels of your home. Check that you have sufficient insulation and that it’s the right kind of insulation for your house and the environment in Denton.

Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running
Lots of people keep their HVAC fan set to “Auto” and believe this means the fan will only run when required. What truly 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 heated and cooled air circulating throughout your home constantly 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 signify trouble for your HVAC system. They’ll have to run harder to do their job, and some rooms might end up colder or hotter than other rooms. 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 certainly 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 are interested in more information about zoning solutions for your home, Oak Point Heating and Air LLC is here to help.
