Uneven heating is when certain parts of your home are warmer or cooler than others. No one likes uneven heating. They want to be comfortable and not have to adjust to a new temperature if they decide to walk to another room. If you notice areas in your home that are unevenly heated, Modern Air Solutions can help. Below are just some of the most popular solutions we have to offer.

Ductless Systems

Many homes in the area use a forced-air HVAC system that use ducts to transport conditioned air all over your home. However, there are ductless systems that can warm or cool the air in your home without the use of ducts.

These systems are useful when you only need extra help warming or cooling a small section of your home. However, they are not the most cost-effective way to heat your entire home. Talk to a Modern Air Solutions professional to find out if a ductless system is the best solution for you.

Home Zoning

If most of the treated air in your home is going to the rooms you don’t use as often, you may want to consider a home zoning system. For instance, a bedroom that is nice and cool helps many people get a good night’s rest in the summer. Unfortunately, heat rises and may make your second floor warmer than you would like. You are left with the choice of just dealing with the heat or cranking up the air to make your room cooler. A home zoning system can help you avoid having to make this choice.

A home zoning system breaks your home into separate areas, each with their own thermostat. It allows you to direct the conditioned air exactly where you want it to go. This way you can better ensure that whichever area you are currently using is comfortable.

Check Furniture Placement

Tip: If you need help remembering to change your filter or scheduling maintenance, try setting aside a specific day every month where you can make a habit of taking care of HVAC maintenance. You can also mark it down on your calendar or create a reminder on your phone.

Neglecting to Get Your Air Ducts Cleaned

Sometimes uneven heating can be caused by something as simple as the furniture placement in your home. If there is a piece of furniture blocking your vent or return air run, it could be blocking the air from entering or leaving your home. This causes uneven heating because the air can’t reach all of the areas of your home. If you are experiencing uneven heating, take a walk around your home and make sure the area around your vents are clear.

Cleaning Your Air Ducts

Not only does furniture block the air from entering and leaving your home, but debris within your air ducts can as well. Over time dust, pet fur, pet dander, dirt, and more will pile up within your ducts. The more dust, the harder your system has to work to warm or cool your home. You may notice uneven heating, higher utility bills, and more dust in your home. You should contact Modern Air Solutions to clean your air ducts every 5-10 years.

Duct Modification

Other potential issues could be the layout of air ducts, damage to your air ducts, or leaks. These issues can lead to low air pressure and uneven heating. If this is the case in your Bensalem home, Modern Air Solutions can help by modifying, fixing, or replacing your air ducts. If you think that a problem with your air ducts is causing uneven heating in your home, contact Modern Air Solutions for a consultation.

Insulation and Sealing Off Air Leaks In Your Home

Finally, you should inspect the rest of your home? Is the air in your home escaping through the doors and window or a crack in the wall? Do you have proper insulation? All of these issues can lead to uneven heating. If you plan on replacing your doors and windows sometime soon, quality doors and windows that are properly sealed will pay off in the long run.
