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 best HVAC system, you may notice that your space isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the coldest and hottest Naples days. That’s because there’s more that goes into the equation. Your registers, how your family runs your HVAC and other user preferences can factor into the temperatures you feel throughout your home. The team at Speedy Air Conditioning are here to share 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 objects, or that have accumulated dust and dirt on them. Blocked registers can be a cause 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 doesn’t have enough insulation in the attic, you may be losing heated air in the winter and letting hot outside air in during 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. Make sure you have enough insulation and that it’s the correct kind of insulation for your home and the climate in Naples.

Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running
Lots of people keep their HVAC fan set to “Auto” and assume that this means the fan will only run when required. What actually 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 constantly 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 signify trouble for your HVAC system. They’ll have to work harder to do their job, and some rooms may end up cooler or warmer than other rooms. The same is true for air leaks near 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 adjust 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 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 possibilities for your home, Speedy Air Conditioning can help.
