We have seen some downright bizarre weather patterns here in Maryland over the years, but no weather is more bizarre than what happens when the seasons are changing. We can experience several seasons worth of weather in the span of just a single day sometimes! With all these crazy meteorological variances, how do you even begin to know how to set your thermostat to stay comfortable? Here are some tips for staying comfortable inside while the weather transitions from summer to fall.
Where is your thermostat?
Different parts of your home or commercial space are just going to be warmer or cooler. It’s pretty much impossible to keep every room at the same temperature all the time. Trying to regulate temperatures in your home can be really frustrating, because of all the factors that can influence temperature. One thing that can help is evaluating the location of your thermostat. If it’s in an area that stays pretty cool, that’s going to make other areas feel warmer. If it’s in a warmer area, other rooms may tend to stay pretty cold.
Ventilation also plays a major role in HVAC efficiency. Ensure all vents and ducts are kept clear and clean. They can’t work effectively if they are clogged and crowded. If you have 2 rooms immediately next to each other (on top of or next to each other) that tend to be opposite temperatures, add a vent connecting them to allow air to flow and that should help neutralize the temperature in both rooms. It is also important to keep vents open. If air can’t flow freely through your HVAC system, it just gets trapped in there and the compressor actually has to work harder to get to the areas where the vents are actually open.
