Some homeowners in Greenville, North Carolina, find that one room is always too warm while another is too cold. If you’re learning that no amount of thermostat adjustment evens out your home’s temperature, there are several solutions that can solve the problem. Here’s how to maintain an even temperature throughout your home:
Clean the Air Ducts
If you have leaks in your air ducts, cool air won’t make it to every air vent, resulting in uneven cooling. Dirty ducts can also decrease efficiency and prevent strong airflow through the system. Whether you have leaking or dirty ducts, your energy bills will likely increase over time without professional attention.
Turn On the AC Fan
Keeping your HVAC fan on keeps cool air circulating throughout your house, even when the air conditioner has finished its cycle. It also helps keep temperatures constant in every room.
Adjust the Air Vents
You might need to redirect your air vents — and even partially close some — to eliminate uneven cooling. Ensure furniture isn’t blocking floor vents. Have a service technician check if vents and filters are clogged with debris.
Check the Insulation
Cool air from your HVAC system is no match against hot air in a poorly insulated attic. Adding high-quality insulation will help the cool air stay in and the hot air stay out, keeping your home at a constant temperature.
Install a Zoned System
Zoned HVAC systems let you independently control the temperatures of different rooms via individual thermostats. These systems adjust dampers installed in the ductwork and help maintain an even temperature. They also let you cool certain areas faster while leaving unoccupied rooms warmer.
Many things can cause temperature imbalances inside your home. Luckily, you can solve most problems with the right HVAC solutions.
