Causes of Uneven Heating in Your Home

You might be one of many homeowners who find that the temperature of the air differs, sometimes quite a bit, from one room to another and one level to another. This is most commonly the case with different floors, such as from the basement from the attic. Of course, heat naturally rises and cool air falls, so some degree of a difference in temperature is normal. However, what do you do if you notice a dramatic difference from one room to another on the same level or from one end of your home to another?

More often than not, when uneven heating happens, it could be a number of small issues that can usually be easily fixed. Before calling in a heating repair service expert to diagnose the issue, there are some things you can check for yourself first:

  • If you’ve unwittingly put furniture in front of the vents in your home, you may have a particularly easy fix for cool spots in your home. Move your furniture out of the way and warm air should be able to circulate more easily.
  • When an air filter is dirty, it’s less likely that the cool air will get through and into the rooms where you need it. If you ensure that you change your air filters on a regular basis, you’ll likely avoid the problem of bad circulation due to dirt.

There are a few things that can cause this cycle to lose efficiency that an expert should take a look at for you:

  • If there are blockages within the ducts of your HVAC system, again, air won’t circulate properly.
  • If your HVAC unit is not large enough, it won’t be able to adequately cool all of the areas of your home.
