3 Simple Tips for Eliminating Uneven Home Cooling
Have you been finding that when you walk from room to room or move between different floors in your home, there is a noticeable change in the air quality and temperature? If you find that your rooms aren’t cooling as evenly as they once did, then there may be an issue with your HVAC system which is causing air to distribute less evenly than it once did.
What can you do? Keep reading to learn three easy ways that you can regain control of the temperature and comfort level of your indoor air:
1. Check Your Attic Insulation
Do you know what kind of insulation you have in your attic? If you don’t, it’s time to investigate!
One of the easiest ways to know if your attic insulation is adding to your cooling issue is to travel between floors of your home. Does one floor feel noticeably cooler than the other? Then your attic insulation may be to blame.
Many homeowners don’t give their attic insulation a second thought, but the quality and quantity of insulation present in your attic can have a significant difference on how much cool air stays trapped inside your home. This is because attic insulation is designed to keep cool air in and warm air out, and when it’s not thick enough, or isn’t the right kind for your needs, then it will allow cool air to escape while keeping warm air trapped inside.
2. Invest in a Zoning System
Zoning systems are air quality control systems which can help control specific areas of your home that may need additional cool air to remain a consistent temperature with the rest of the rooms in your house.
The greater degree of accuracy and control is an added boon for homeowners who have issues keeping the temperature of various floors, rooms, or whole areas as comfortable as the rest of their homes. When you install your zoning system your HVAC expert can help you determine the appropriate amount of rooms or areas which need their own unique set of controls, and can assist you with designing a customized plan to stay cool and comfortable whenever you need it.
3. Have Your Air Duct System Checked
Have you ever had your air duct system inspected? Then it’s probably time to book an appointment with your local HVAC expert for a checkup.
If your air duct system, which is the portion of your heating and cooling system responsible for distributing air throughout your home, has suffered damage which has caused leaks, tears, and holes to form, then it may be a significant contributing factor to your air quality control issues.
Because cool air can leak out as it gets pushed from different areas of your home some rooms may feel cooler than needed, while others get no airflow at all. Luckily, a few quick fixes to your air duct system should have you feeling comfortable in no time at all.
