It can be very frustrating to any homeowner to move through their house and experience temperature fluctuations. This is especially true during winter when you want to stay warm. So why are some rooms colder than others? There are a few reasons your temperatures can fluctuate from room to room.
Reasons for Room Temperature Imbalances
There are several different reasons why your room temperatures fluctuate, depending on where you are in your home. The professionals at Oliver are here with the answers you’re looking for.
Your Air Filter Is Dirty
A clogged air filter can cause the airflow in your home to be unevenly distributed. You should change your air filters monthly to ensure proper airflow. Dirty air filters can also put excessive strain on your HVAC system, causing it to run harder and need repairs more often.
Your Vents Are Blocked
Blocked vents can prevent airflow into a room and cause the overall airflow to change in the house. Your air system is designed to flow through the entire house. When this flow is off balance, the whole system suffers. This is why closing off vents and doors to unused rooms can have an impact on the temperature of the entire home.
Your System Is Not the Right Size
If you have a system that is too small for your home, it will not heat or cool it properly. If you believe that this is the case, speak with a professional at Oliver to find out what system would best fit the size of your home.
You May Have Leaks
Your home may have leaks that you are unaware of, causing it to be colder in some rooms. Check around the seals of your windows and exterior doors to see if there is air coming in. If you can feel air coming in, you can assume that air is also going out.
Your HVAC System May Need Balancing
If you still cannot find out why are some rooms colder than others, it might be that your HVAC system is not balanced. Contact Oliver to have your system evaluated. It may be something as simple as rebalancing your system or giving the system maintenance.
