How To Keep An Evenly Heated Home
If you are like many homeowners, you've probably experience hot and cold spots in certain areas of your house. While it's not uncommon to have these uneven temperatures, there are things that you can do to combat these problem areas and prepare your home for successful heating and cooling this year.
Here are a few ways to help evenly heat your home:
- Add Insulation - Heat could be escaping in certain rooms due to poor insulation. For ultimate comfort and to save on energy, be sure to have enough insulation between your attic and walls. Proper insulation in your attic can result in 10-15% savings in your utility usage!
- Clean Your System - A professional tune up and maintenance is key in even distribution of heat. Maintenance of your airways and ducts are very important for heat flow, because unclean systems and filters can cause problems and unnoticeably rack up your heating bills.
- Check For Leaks – Leaks can develop at any time. Using your hands, inspect ductwork while the system is running and try to see if you can feel any leaks. Apply heavy tape to any areas where you can feel air escaping.
- Assess Your Heating System - Have a furnace from the stone age? Is your system properly sized to evenly heat and cool your home? Could certain rooms benefit from a ductless HVAC system? Ask yourself these questions, then invite one of our comfort experts out to provide you with heating and cooling solutions for your home.
