Improving your home’s airflow is important for your comfort and well-being, heating and overall energy efficiency. Below are some ways to help you improve the airflow in your home.
1. Turn on Ceiling Fans
A ceiling fan is an inexpensive way to increase the airflow in your house and improve the temperature by circulating the air. You can install a ceiling fan in nearly every room of the house since it is a simple way to improve the airflow in your home.
2. Check Vents and Registers
If you have closed vents and registers, you are blocking air from entering the room. This will cause your heating system to work harder and use more electricity than it needs to. Regularly check your registers to ensure they are open, clean and not blocked by furniture.
3. Clean Furnace Filters Regularly
Another way to improve airflow is to clean the filters regularly in your heating system. Dirty filters block airflow, which can damage your system, resulting in higher electricity bills and premature system breakdowns.
4. Upgrade Your Heating System
If your furnace is approaching the end of its expected life span, it may be time to upgrade. An energy-efficient furnace will run cost less than an older unit that’s not energy efficient. A programmable thermostat will also help you save money on your energy costs.
5. Schedule HVAC Maintenance
