Consistency is key when it comes to your home’s HVAC system. You don’t want to come home to a home that is freezing in one room and scorching hot in another. To better control the temperature in your home, it’s essential to control the right amount of either cold or warm air and how it flows throughout your home. The process of air balancing can help ensure the air is better balanced and distributed throughout your home by making tweaks to your current system.
Here are some tips from our team to help make your home that much more comfortable.
Check for Drafts
If there is an area of your home that is consistently cool, try checking for drafts by inspecting windows to see that they aren’t letting cold air in. Also, your doors should be properly sealed in order to minimize the cold spots throughout your home. Make changes as necessary so that your home is as air-tight as possible, especially in the winter.
Check Your Filters
It’s always a good idea to check on your air filters, as a clean air filter can improve your air quality, increase furnace efficiency, extend the life of your HVAC system and keep monthly energy costs down. Hot and cold spots can be minimized with a consistent flow of energy throughout your home.
Close or Open Your Registrar
Last but not least, simply checking on your registrar can help make your home more comfortable, as you should have the ability to move your damper blade. When temperatures are warm, try opening your registrars on the upper floor of your home and partially close registrars on your first floor and basement. Do the opposite during cold weather.
It’s always our goal to help you make your home as comfortable as possible. Whether you need a furnace repair in Palatine or are interested in annual maintenance, don’t hesitate to call us today.
