Service

A good cooling and heating system means your home will consistently be the perfect temperature, right? That’s not always the case. Even with the greatest HVAC system, you may find that your home isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the coldest and hottest Holdrege days. That’s because there’s several items that go into the equation. Your registers, how your household your HVAC and other user preferences can impact the temperatures you feel throughout your house. The team at Durable Service are here to explain 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 house 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 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 might be losing heated air during the winter and permitting 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 various levels of your home. Make sure you have enough insulation and that it’s the appropriate kind of insulation for your type of home and the environment in Holdrege.

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 required. 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 heated and cooled air circulating around your home constantly and, therefore, keep the temperature more uniform throughout your home.

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 could 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 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 definitely more of a long-term project and a bigger 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 options for your home, Durable Service can help.
