Smoothing Out Those Hot and Cold Spots

Have you ever noticed that some areas of your home consistently are warmer or colder than other areas, making general comfort or the perfect temperature of your home always seem like it is just out of reach? Let’s take a look at some reasons for this and review some simple solutions to reach that consistently comfortable level throughout your entire home.


Too Big, Too Small?

Making sure your system is not too big or too small will help ensure proper coverage throughout your home.  A system that is too small will not have the horsepower to condition all areas in extreme outdoor temps, reducing overall comfort. This is why we recommend multi-stage furnaces and air conditioners.

On the flip side, a furnace that is too big for your home’s square footage and layout will short cycle, causing the unit to use more energy and wear out faster.
The simple solution here is to consult with us here at Healthy Home Heating & Cooling to make sure your home’s system matches up to your needs.


Duct Sizing

Having the correct sized ductwork to carry the proper air to all rooms of the home is the backbone of all heating and cooling systems. A very common duct problem is small ducts that are unable to carry enough air to deliver the needed airflow to provide you comfort.


What’s Your Home’s Layout?

The cause of your hot and cold spots may simply be your home’s layout, such as sunrooms, bonus rooms, finished basements, etc.
Achieving the levels of comfort expected and desired, it may be time for us to discuss whether your home should have a customized zoning system to provide the right temperature when you need and where you want it!


If you are experiencing hot and cold spots in your home, we can do something about it, but let’s get to the root of the cause first. Call us today for a consultation!
