Fixing Uneven Cooling in a House

May 12, 2019

When it starts to get hot outside, having an unreliable HVAC system can cause a variety of problems. Whether a specific room isn’t getting cool enough or your upstairs bedrooms are too stuffy, there are steps you can take.

How to Reduce Uneven Cooling in Your Home

If there’s a single room that isn’t getting warm, make sure there’s nothing blocking the vents. By keeping large pieces of furniture away from vents, you can improve the air flow. Running the fan of your HVAC system even when you aren’t cooling can also keep warm air circulating throughout the different rooms in your home.

You should never purposely block the vents in any rooms. Some people do this in rooms that they don’t spend much time in. The goal is to save money by only cooling the rooms you use. However, this plan will backfire and actually cause you to use more energy. It could also damage your cooling system and cause it to leak.

A leaking duct system can cause warm air to escape into your walls and parts of your house that don’t need to be cooled. This can cause inefficiencies in the system. A poorly sized air conditioner can also fail to keep your entire home warm. Having an HVAC professional take a look at your unit and ductwork can help you to determine if there’s an issue.

An unevenly cooled house can cause your system to work less efficiently and cost you money. Regardless of the size of your home, you should be able to count on your HVAC system to keep it at an even and comfortable temperature.
