Tips for Balancing the Temperatures in Your Home

Published by Luke Weiden

October is always a weird month weather-wise. Some days are in their 70s and 80s while some have a high of 50 or 60. Not to mention those days that start out at 40 degrees and somehow end up creeping into the upper 70s. One day you need furnace installation in Chicago, the next, you’re turning on your AC. Not only does this confuse your body, but it can confuse how you should be running your HVAC system as well. This is where air balancing comes into play. Air balancing involves modifying your existing HVAC system to ensure air is evenly distributed throughout your home.

Keep the following tips in mind to help balance the temperatures inside of your home. 

2-Degree Offset

A 2-degree offset works like this: if you are in at least a two-story home, you likely have more than one thermostat. Set each thermostat so that there is a 2-degree difference for each floor. For example, you can set the upstairs thermostat to 72 and the downstairs thermostat to 74 to help even out the temperatures. 

Check Your Filters

The age-old tip of checking your filters should always be considered as well. You could be pumping the heat or the air and it has to flow through a layer of dust or grime. Checking your filters regularly can help extend the life of your HVAC system and keep energy costs low. 

Utilize Your Registrar

Opening or closing the registrar in the room is a simple yet effective way to restrict airflow. However, when you are doing this, make sure you don’t completely close the vents, as this could cause damage to your system.

Make sure your HVAC is ready for the upcoming cooler temperatures! For boiler and furnace installation in Chicago, contact us at Deljo today.
