Follow These Three Tips to Eliminate Uneven Cooling In Your House
Have you been noticing that as you walk from room to room in your home, the temperature shifts? Do different levels of your multi-story residence feel cooler, or warmer on different levels? Then you’re experiencing an issue with your cooling system adequately supplying cold, comfortable air.
What can you do about it? Rather than invest in an extra fan (or two) take a look at these three simple and long-term solutions for controlling the temperature of your indoor air and eliminating uneven cooling:
1. Invest in a Zoning System
Whole-house zoning systems are growing in popularity because they allow homeowners to design customized “zones” whose temperatures can be controlled independently of one another. These systems are especially useful in multi-story homes, or large homes which have issues supplying cool, comfortable air to every nook and cranny of the home.
These systems are also handy for homeowners who live with family members who have difficulty sleeping in warm rooms, or who require special temperature control in order to feel comfortable because they can channel additional cool air to a specific area without making other family members uncomfortable.
2. Add Insulation to Your Attic
Attics are one of the biggest culprits when it comes to the fight against uneven cooling. Your attic’s insulation can play a major role in keeping cool air in, or letting it escape, and whichever role it serves depends largely on the kind of insulation that you have, and how much of it is currently in your attic.
Increasing the amount of insulation in your attic doesn’t just keep warm outdoor air out, but it also keeps cold air trapped inside, insulating your home from the outside world and warmer temperatures.
3. Have Your Air Ducts Inspected for Leaks
Your air duct system, which is critical to ensuring that cool air is evenly distributed throughout your home, must be in perfect working order so that it can effectively move air from room to room and maintain a consistent indoor temperature.
If your air duct system has become compromised due to leaks, holes, or tears inside the ductwork then it’s likely that cool air is escaping into unwanted areas before arriving at its destination.
This is why some rooms may feel much colder than others even though they’re set to the same temperature. Luckily, a few repairs should remedy the situation and restore the flow of cool air to your home in no time.
