It can be a challenge to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the coldest days of winter. Ensuring the rooms of your home are evenly heated depends on a number of different factors. Luckily, there are also a lot things you can do to fix the problem.
If your room is too hot, what should you do? Most people just close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t realize is that doing this can throw off the balance of your system and actually reduce your energy efficiency.
So, what should you do instead? We have some tips.
Keep the areas around your cold air return vents clear
Not only does your furnace circulate hot air through your home to heat it, it removes cooler air from your inside your home. If your cold air returns are obstructed, your furnace can’t do its job. Keeping these vents clear will allow your furnace to operate as it should and help it regulate room temperatures better.
Regular maintenance is key

Don’t rely on Auto setting
Some rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more problematic to heat. Making sure your thermostat has the fan switch “On” instead of on “Auto” can help. When the fan is switched to “On,” your furnace will keep air moving through all your rooms and create a more even temperature.
