You deserve comfortable temperatures in your home
Have you ever walked around your house and felt a significant difference in temperature between the upstairs, downstairs, or even different rooms on the same floor? What you’re feeling is an imbalance of temperature in your home due to your heating and cooling system. An unbalanced room will blow too much air, whether it’s too hot or too cold, into one room and not enough in another.
There are a number of factors that contribute to room temperature imbalance. Let’s assume you only have a single thermostat to control the temperature of your entire house. When you have a thermostat located in one room, the thermostat will read the temperature in only that one place in your home. Assuming your heating and cooling unit is properly working, that particular area will be at the temperature you set it to, but some rooms need more or less airflow than others.
You may be wondering if it’s possible to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout your house without making a large investment. To maintain a precisely uniform temperature across the space in your home, you’ll need a heating and air technician to fix the air flow rate in the ductwork, which is called dampers, adjusted for balanced temperature. By using the dampers to limit or increase airflow in certain areas you’ll notice a significant increase in your comfort throughout your entire home.
Your heating and cooling technician will also ensure that air is properly circulating. There should be at least one large return vent in your home that collects the inside air and returns it back to the heating and air conditioning unit. You need the conditioned air to not only reach each room, but also get back to the HVAC unit. This air flow process is hindered when doors are closed and when furniture is blocking vents on the floor.
