One of the things that you can do to keep your home comfortable during the year is to maintain balanced airflow. It is also a great way to increase energy efficiency and reduce your energy bills.
Simply put, balanced airflow means ensuring that your HVAC system makes the temperature in all of the rooms in your home equally comfortable. This means that you will have to control the airflow through the ductwork in order to ensure that no room gets too hot or too cold.
One way that you can do this is to adjust the dampers inside of the ducts. Open and close them in order to meet your airflow needs.
If you cannot locate the dampers, then you can use the vent openings inside of the walls to control home air flow:
- Fully open the vents in every room.
- Make sure that all of the doors are kept open.
- Set your thermostat and allow the heat pump and central air conditioning unit to regulate the temperature inside of the home.
- As the unit runs, take note of the temperature in each room and adjust the vent openings.
Balancing airflow is a process that requires trial and error. You have to keep a keen eye in order to achieve a comfortable temperature. The true long-term solution is to ensure that your registers and ducts are properly sized, which can be determined by the comfort specialists at Hobaica Services.
