How to Evenly Heat and Cool Your Home

A good heating and cooling system means your house will consistently be the perfect temperature, right? That’s not always the case. Even with the best HVAC system, you may find that your home isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the warmest and coolest Las Vegas 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 home. The team at JonAire Inc 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 curtains or furniture, or that have dirt and debris built up dust and dirt on them. Blocked registers can cause a problem with 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 is lacking insulation in the attic, you could be losing heated air in the winter and permitting hot outside air throughout the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or inadequately insulated attic could result in major temperature differences on separate levels of your home. Make sure you have adequate insulation and that it’s the right kind of insulation for your home and the climate in Las Vegas.

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 it’s needed. 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 the air circulating around 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 indicate trouble for your HVAC system. They’ll have to run harder to do their job, and some rooms could end up colder or hotter than other parts of the house. The same is true for air leaks by 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 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 are interested in more information about zoning options for your home, JonAire Inc can assist.
