How to Prevent Uneven Cooling in Your Home
Uneven home cooling can be a problem in your Woodbridge, Virginia, house. Find out how regular checks of your ductwork and registers, plus regular air filter changes and maintenance visits, can keep your entire home evenly comfortable throughout the hot months.
Check Your Ductwork
Clogged ductwork is often a major contributor to uneven airflow and cooling in your home. If any of your home’s ducts are not sealed correctly or if an object blocks or clogs the ducts, circulating air won’t be able to cool your home properly.
One of our Brennan’s Heating & Air Conditioning contractors can do a home energy audit. Your contractor can also check your home’s ducts to make sure they are sealed properly and free from debris.
Inspect Your Registers
A blocked or closed register is a potential issue that can affect your home’s cooling. If you’ve placed furniture in front of any of your vents, the air won’t be able to distribute evenly throughout your home.
If you’re experiencing cooling issues throughout your home, walk through your house. Make sure that all your room vents are open and that no furniture blocks airflow.
Change Your Unit’s Air Filters
Dirty or clogged air filters are another cause of uneven cooling throughout your home. Dirty filters affect both cooling and your home’s indoor air quality.
A preventive maintenance plan can help you make sure your HVAC unit’s air filters are replaced. However, you should still check your HVAC system’s air filters, especially when your system works overtime during the hot summer months.
HVAC Unit Sizing
One of many issues related to having the incorrect unit size is uneven cooling in your home. If your unit’s load size is inadequate for the size of your home, you may not be able to cool your home properly. After investigating other factors, a trained technician may need to check your current unit.
We know that uneven cooling in your home can be annoying and we can help you solve the problem. Call Brennan’s Heating & Air Conditioning at 703-783-0145 to find out how we can help you correct problems with uneven cooling throughout your home.
