As a Canadian homeowner, you pay monthly for your furnace to keep your home warm through the winter, so you deserve to have comfortable and even heating throughout your house. It can be really frustrating when you experience uneven home heating or cold spots in certain areas of your home. Fortunately, there are ways that homeowners can help to make sure they have even heating throughout their home. Here are a few things that you can do to stop uneven heating in your house this winter.
Change Your Furnace Filter Regularly
If your furnace’s filter is clogged with dust, hair, fur, and other debris from the air, it has to work harder to complete the same job and may cause uneven heating in your home. To make sure that your furnace filter is not the reason your home’s heating may be uneven, make sure to change your filter at least once every 90 days, and potentially more often if you have pets in the household.
Seal Any Drafts
If one or more of the rooms in your home is drafty due to unsealed windows and doors or an uninsulated attic, you may start to experience uneven home heating. At the beginning of the winter season, make sure to go through your home, sealing any drafts that you may find. This can help you to keep the heat in your home and save money on potentially lost heating and energy due to drafts.
Invest In Supplementary Heating
Some homes regardless of the quality of furnace or sealed drafts will always have rooms that are harder to heat. For example, if you have a room located on top of the garage, it may always be difficult to keep warm. To remedy those tricky rooms, a great option is to install supplementary heating that will climatize that one room instead of the whole house. For uneven home heating, the best option may be to invest in a ductless mini-split system.
Schedule Annual Preventative Maintenance
If your furnace isn’t working properly or heating your home as well as it once did, this may be a sign that you need to invest in a tune-up for your system. Sometimes, uneven home heating is just the cause of a furnace that needs a little extra maintenance and TLC. If you haven’t had annual preventative maintenance on your furnace in the past year and you’re experiencing uneven home heating, it may be time to call the experts at Delta for a tune-up!
