Are you experiencing discomfort from hot spots in your home? Scratching your head while trying to figure out how to fix it? The solution is optimal air balancing.
In simple terms, air balancing ensures that the conditioned air is evenly distributed throughout your home. It promotes ideal air circulation and allows your HVAC system to run as efficiently as possible. We'll offer up some do-it-yourself methods to adjust the airflow in each room in this article, but if you find that the right solution is a never-ending guessing game, call in Hey Neighbor Heating & Cooling for professional repair and adjustments!
Follow these easy DIY tips to optimize the airflow in your home. Then, if you still can't find comfort, don't hesitate to call our expert team to get relief!
Clear and adjust your air vents. In each area of your home, find the register vents and ensure they aren't dirty or obstructed by furniture or other bulky items. Keeping your air vents clear and adjusted correctly is one of the easiest and best ways to keep your home nice and cool in the hot summer months.
Be aware, though - closing vents in rooms that you aren't using doesn't help you save on energy bills, nor does it cool other rooms better. Instead, it puts unnecessary strain on your HVAC system and can cause hot spots in other areas due to uneven air pressure.
Check your air filter. Regularly checking and replacing your air filter will improve the air quality in your home, but it also helps your central air conditioning system operate at its most efficient level. This easy task might enable you to reduce or eliminate uneven cooling problems just by changing your air filter each month.
Need another reason to replace that dirty air filter? It'll impede airflow, causing your system to work harder and leading to unexpected breakdowns. Nobody wants that to happen, especially during the heat of summer when your system is already working overtime to keep your house cool.
Add window coverings. Keeping the sun's scorching rays out of your home during the hottest part of the day can greatly enhance the comfort level in each room. Windows without curtains or blinds will often heat up a room quicker than your HVAC can cool it down. Even better - window coverings will also help improve energy efficiency in your home year-round.
Set your ceiling fans correctly. Choosing the correct spin direction for your ceiling fans will dramatically improve air circulation and comfort in each room with a fan. The idea is to push the air down in summer (counterclockwise) and pull the air up in winter (clockwise). If it's spinning the wrong way, simply turn off the fan, wait for it to stop spinning, and flip the direction switch on the fan itself.
These easy-peasy DIY air balancing tips will help you eliminate hot spots in your home, but call our expert team if they don't help! We'll test your HVAC system to ensure that it's running efficiently and correctly balancing the airflow in your home, so your family stays cool and comfortable this summer!
