How Is the Temperature in Your Home?
We want our homes to be as comfortable as possible and with the right AC system installed in the home, it can certainly be comfortable during the hot weather months. The same can also be said for the winter, when we want our HVAC system to pump the air into our home that is nice and toasty. Unfortunately, there can be problems that occur in the home and one of those is that you have room temperature and balance, either in the same room or from one room to the other. What causes this problem and what can be done to correct it?
One of the most common problems that occurs in the home as far as the temperature is concerned is the location of the thermostat. Traditionally, the thermostat was located in the primary area of the home, typically the room that was closest to the front door. It can be convenient to change the temperature as you are entering the home or leaving the home and having one unit would seem to be the best option that is available. That is not the case, however, because it can result in an imbalance in room temperature.
Think of it this way, you have an entire home with multiple rooms that extend out from the central location where the thermostat is located. The temperature is going to be controlled properly at the thermostat and in that room, you're going to have a true feeling of what it should feel like throughout the entire home. Behind closed doors and in rooms that are out-of-the-way, however, you end up with the temperature imbalance because the air is not as efficient in reaching those areas as it is at reaching the centralized area.
Another problem that can result in an imbalance of temperatures within the home is that you have poor duct systems. If air is leaking out through the docs or if they were not installed properly, it can be a real problem and it is one that is going to need to be corrected.
What Can Be Done about Room Temperature Imbalance?
Fortunately, there are some options available that can help to reduce the issue and to balance out the temperature within the home. At times, the option may be somewhat simplistic and you can contact the professionals at Select AC to diagnose the temperature in your home and to determine what is necessary in order to make it better.
One of the options that Select AC may consider is increasing the size of the ducts to allow for additional airflow throughout the home. If this is done properly and to allow for the additional airflow to the room that is not currently receiving it, it can a large difference. Even a simple blade dampener may help to control the problem, redirecting the air to where it is necessary and away from where it is going.
