Hot Room, Cold Room - Tips For Achieving Even Temperatures In Your Home

In a typical house it's not unusual to have temperature differences of several degrees from room to room. Attics, basements and additions usually have the greatest air temperature differences. When one room is uncomfortably hot or cold there are several factors to consider.

Ensure You Have Enough Insulation

In a cold climate like Colorado, proper insulation is essential. The recommended R-value for attics is 43, and an R-value of 21 for walls

Seal Air Leaks Around Windows and Doors

Proper weather sealing will eliminate drafts and heat loss. It will also help your furnace and air conditioner work more efficiently.

Check Your Air Delivery System

One of the most common problems we see in home heating and cooling systems that are not working well are air ducts that are not properly sized to move air throughout the home. To check for potential problems Grand Lake Plumbing can perform an air delivery analysis to determine if air is reaching all areas of your home.

Seal Air Duct Leaks

Sealing the gaps and joints in your air ducts will allow your furnace and air conditioner to work more efficiently and ensure all the air reaches all areas of your home
