Does it feel like global warming in your home — warm upstairs, but frigid downstairs? The temperature shouldn’t differ based off a few flight of stairs.
Here are 4 Ways to Solve Uneven Home Cooling:
1. Use Your Air Vents
Do you have any blocked or dirty vents? This can be the main reason why the air is being distributed unevenly throughout your home. You can also redirect air using your vents by partially (not fully) closing some vents on the first floor. This will move the air to the second floor and beyond.
2. Switch Your Fan from “Auto” to “On”
When your system is “on,” the fan stays on and circulates the air, even if the systems cooling cycle turns off. This helps continuously circulate your home's temperature between the first and second floor. If your system is on “auto,” the fan runs only when your home needs to be cooled.
4. Add Insulation To Your Attic
The insulation in your attic helps keep your homes air temperature under control. However, if you lack the proper amount of insulation, some of that air may be leaking out, or coming inside.
5. Control Different Areas with a Zoning System
A zoning system may be a larger investment, but it can also be one of the most efficient ways to deal with this issue. A zoning system allows you to control the temperature in different areas or floors.
Still, nothing beats talking to a professional about your options. The issue may end up being that you need a repair, replacement, or a tune-up. If you want to learn more about Rescue Air’s air conditioning service in Richardson, please give us a call at (972) 201-3253.
