Service

A good heating and cooling system means your home will constantly be the perfect temperature, right? That’s not always the case. Even with the greatest HVAC system, you may discover that your space isn’t evenly heated or cooled—especially on the warmest and coolest Marietta days. That’s because there’s several items that go into the equation. Your registers, how your household your HVAC and other personal preferences can factor into the temperatures you feel throughout your home. The team at Boyles Mechanical LLC are here to explain some things that you can adjust to more evenly heat and cool your home without requiring heating and cooling service.

Check for Closed, Blocked, or Dirty Registers
Check your house for blocked registers and air returns that are covered by furniture or curtains, or that have acquired debris and dirt dust and dirt on them. Blocked registers can be a cause uneven heating and cooling. If a register is blocked, the warm or cool air will be redirected to other rooms leaving certain rooms at incorrect temperatures.

Make Sure You Have Enough Insulation
If your home doesn’t have sufficient insulation in the attic, you may be losing heated air in the winter and permitting hot outside air throughout the summer through the top of your home. A poorly or inadequately insulated attic could end with major temperature differences on separate levels of your home. Make sure you have enough insulation and that it’s the correct kind of insulation for your type of home and the weather in Marietta.

Keep Your HVAC’s Fan Running
Many households keep their HVAC fan set to “Auto” and think this means the fan will only run when it’s needed. What actually happens is that the fan only runs when the heating or cooling kicks on. By keeping your fan in the “On” position, you can help keep cooler and warmer air circulating through your home at all times and, therefore, keep the temperature more even throughout your home.

Check Your Home and Your Ducts for Leaks
If your ducts have leaks or holes in them, they could signify trouble for your HVAC system. They’ll have to run harder to do their job, and some rooms could end up cooler or warmer than other parts of the house. The same is true for air leaks around windows and doors in certain rooms. Luckily, repairing most air leaks is isn’t difficult.

Consider a Zoning System
Another thing you can do to fix how evenly your home is heated and cooled is have your existing HVAC system zoned. It’s certainly more of a long-term project and a bigger investment than other methods of heating and cooling your home evenly, but it gives you ultimate control.
