When it starts to get cold in the winter, you might notice that certain rooms in your home aren’t getting as warm as others. It can be highly inconvenient to have to change your layers of clothing as you move around different rooms in your home. While there are several ways to improve the heating in your home by yourself, some steps require the assistance of an HVAC professional. Here are the most common causes of uneven heating.
Replace Dirty Air Filters
In most HVAC systems, air filters need to be replaced every three to six months. This keeps them clean so that they can move the maximum amount of air through them. Dirty air filters will cause your furnace to work harder in order to heat your home. If they are too dirty, they’ll prevent enough hot air from being circulated around your home.
Check the Air Vents
To make sure hot air can reach each room in your home, make sure that none of your air vents are blocked. Furniture and other items can stop airflow and cause uneven heating.
Check Your Furnace Efficiency
If your furnace is too small to properly heat your home, you won’t be able to enjoy even and comfortable temperatures. Older units can also start to lose their energy efficiency with age and cause cold rooms in your property. Getting regular tune-ups for your unit can keep it running as efficiently as possible.
