How to prevent uneven heating and cooling in your home
Here are some things you can do in your home to ensure that all the rooms in your home are the same temperature. Some of these problems are easy for you to handle on your own while others may require help from a professional NATE certified HVAC technician.
Furniture blocking the air conditioning vents can cause more cool air to be forced into rooms where furniture is not blocking the vents. This can cause some rooms to feel warmer than others. Vents must remain unobstructed in order to allow for even cooling of your home.
Inadequate air circulation can be another cause of uneven cooling of your home. If the door to a room is closed it will trap cool air resulting in that room being cooler than others. Make sure you allow the conditioned air to circulate by limiting the number of closed doors in your home. A dirty air filter can also be the cause of uneven heating and cooling in your home. Open up your air filter and see if it needs to be replaced. Typically an air filter should be replaced every three months. If you have many issues with the air circulation in your home and it is newly built, you may want to seek information from a residential construction lawyer.
If you have utilized the tips above and are still experiencing uneven heating in your home there could be a more serious underlying problem that needs to be solved. Your system may need to be replaced with a new energy efficient XV20i TruComfort Variable Speed Air Conditioner. Or the problem could be as simple as a leaking duct. Regardless of your problem, a seasoned HVAC technician will be able to help you diagnose and solve your HVAC problem.
