Dealing With Uneven Cooling in a Home

June 10, 2019

If you’re noticing that certain rooms in your home don’t cool down enough when you turn your air conditioner on, there are a variety of steps you can take. Uneven cooling can be uncomfortable and lead to energy bills that are higher than they need to be. Addressing various issues can improve the livability of your home and save you money in the long run.

Check Your Air Vents

Go through each room in your home and check to see if the air vents are open or closed. Having furniture or other large objects in front of air vents can also prevent cool air from entering a room. In spaces where you don’t need to be cooled, close the vents so that the cool air gets redirected elsewhere.

Keep Your Fan Running

Keeping the fan of your cooling system running even when the air conditioner isn’t on can keep air circulating. This will move warm air from places it’s building up and keep your home at a more even temperature. This can often be done by turning the fan on your system from “auto” to “on”.

Increase Insulation Levels

To prevent heat from entering your home, add extra insulation to your building. Insulation in the attic and roof is the most important.

Make Sure Your Cooling System is Strong Enough

A fully functional cooling system will be able to spread enough cool throughout your home. Having a professional perform an annual tune-up on your AC system can ensure that it’s working as efficiently as possible. A professional can also assess if your system is properly sized for your home.
