It can be a tough job to keep the rooms in your home evenly heated, especially during the cold days of winter. Whether the rooms of your home are evenly heated depends on several different factors. Luckily, there are also several things you can do to correct the problem.
If your room is too warm, what can you do? Most people merely close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t understand is that doing this can throw off the balance of your system and end up reduce your energy efficiency.
So, what should you do instead? We have some ideas.

Keeping these vents clear will permit your furnace to operate properly and help it regulate room temperatures better.

Don’t rely on Auto setting
Certain rooms in your home may be more removed and are therefore more difficult to heat. Ensuring your thermostat has the fan switch “On” instead of on “Auto” can help.
