How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

A good heating and cooling system means your space will always be the perfect temperature, right? That’s not always the case. Even with the best HVAC system, you may find that your space isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the coldest and hottest West Palm Beach 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 team at Kyzar Air Conditioning Inc 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 home for blocked registers and air returns that are covered by curtains or furniture, 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, the air that has been heated or cooled 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 may be losing heated air during the winter and allowing hot outside air through the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or improperly insulated attic could end with major temperature differences on different levels of your home. Look to see if you have enough insulation and that it’s the appropriate kind of insulation for your home and the weather in West Palm Beach.

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 necessary. 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 cooler and warmer air circulating through your home consistently and, therefore, keep the temperature more uniform throughout your home.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
If your ducts have leaks or holes in them, they could spell 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 parts of the house. The same is true for air leaks near 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 fix 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 greater investment than other approaches of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control. If you would like more information about zoning possibilities for your home, Kyzar Air Conditioning Inc can help.
