Maintaining a consistent temperature throughout your home is essential to indoor comfort. However, this can be difficult in a hot and humid place like Orlando, FL. If you’ve noticed some rooms in your home are warmer than others, it could be due to clogged air filters, closed vents, or duct issues. A simple inspection could help you find the exact cause.
Clogged Air Filters
A dirty air filter can reduce the airflow to certain parts of your home. It will also increase the level of airborne contaminants that cause unhealthy breathing conditions. To improve the airflow throughout your home, replace your air filters at least once every three months.
Check your home for any closed or covered vents. Some homeowners may even have closed vents that they don’t know about in rooms they rarely use. This will restrict cool air from circulating in that space. If you have opened the vents and the problem persists, call a professional to help solve the problem.
Uneven temperatures throughout the home could be a sign of duct issues. Hiring the services of a professional can help you detect underlying problems that cause some rooms to be cooler than others. Fixing duct leaks can help evenly distribute air in different rooms. If you have severe duct issues, you may need to modify your existing system to ensure air is distributed evenly. Regular maintenance helps prevent issues and keeps your system working efficiently.
Fixing the issue of uneven airflow throughout your home can be as simple as adjusting your vents or cleaning your filters. For more complex issues, it is best to call an experienced HVAC company.
