If you’re like many Colorado homeowners, then you may have noticed that certain rooms in your home tend to be colder than others, despite your furnace’s best efforts.

This may seem like an obvious tip, but it’s one of the most common reasons why certain rooms are much colder than others. Children, guests, and even you may have closed the vents months ago, without remembering to open them again once you turned on the furnace. Make sure that every vent in your home is open, as closed registers can cause your airflow to become unbalanced, resulting in uneven heating throughout your home.
Gaps, cracks, and other forms of damage are obvious causes of drafts, but others are often more subtle and harder to detect. If you can’t see any obvious cracks or gaps in your windows and doors, then try lighting a small candle and move it along the edges of your doors and windows. A steady flame indicates that the area has a strong seal, while one that moves or flickers indicates that air from the outdoors is making its way inside.
Your thermostat takes the temperature of the room it’s in and heats your home accordingly. If it’s located in a room that’s consistently warm, or near a heating vent, then it won’t be able to accurately measure the actual temperature in your home. Relocate your thermostat to an area of your home where it can get an accurate reading, and be sure to give our Denver HVAC contractors a call if you would like assistance.
If you don’t want to pay to heat your entire home when you’re only using a few rooms at a time, then you may want to consider investing in zoning. Zoning separates your rooms and allows them to operate at various temperatures, which can completely eliminate the discomfort caused by unevenly heated rooms. For instance, you can set your family room to 80 degrees Fahrenheit while you’re home during the day, but you can turn down the temperature in your bedroom and home office while they’re not in use. Zoning is complex and must be completed by an experienced HVAC company, so call or email Pure Air Solutions if you would like to learn more about zoning your home.
