All rooms are not alike. Some are warmer when you’d rather they be cool, some are cooler when you’d rather them be warm. How is this happening? A number of variables could be having an impact. For example, direct exposure to sunlight heats up a room- good in winter, not so good in summer.
Electronics could play a role here if high-speed computers and accessories are plugged in, powered up and producing heat. The height of the ceiling has an impact, as does the type of flooring. Why even the number of people in the room can raise it’s temperature.
No, all rooms are not alike, but that doesn’t mean the level of comfort can’t be the same. And that calls for an understanding of the variables, along with an assessment of how well your home comfort system balances the different needs and efficiently delivers the warm or cool air you desire.
How To Get Balanced
The first steps for balancing the air on your own is to make sure:
Return vents are open
Windows are properly closed
Clean or replace your air filter on a regular schedule
You may also want to have your home comfort system evaluated by a professional. Air balancing and air diagnostics can pinpoint inefficient areas and provide solutions. These are tests that determine how well your system is performing and what adjustments need to be made.
The effectiveness of your system depends on the amount of airflow. A certified technician can measure this airflow and see how the system is performing. He can then make a diagnosis to repair and balance the duct system for maximum performance.
