Your HVAC system works to ensure greater thermal comfort and energy efficiency in your home, but in order to do this, your air vents need to be aimed or redirected. Otherwise, your system won’t be able to heat or cool your rooms properly. Plus, you might end up paying higher energy bills. Amber Air Conditioning, the area’s leading source of high-quality indoor air quality solutions, discusses more here:
Maximizing Indoor Comfort by Redirecting Vents
Here’s how it works: the air passing through your HVAC system is cooled or heated and then blown through the supply ducts connecting your walls, ceilings and floors. To better and more effectively distribute hot or cold air into your living space, there are air-supply vents that you can adjust or close as needed. When it’s warm outside, for example, you can adjust the vents located near the floor so that the cold air flows upward. This way, the air can circulate properly in the room, keeping it cool and comfortable. In colder weather, on the other hand, make sure the vents near your ceiling are aimed down to prevent heated air from rising to the ceiling and escaping your home.
Preventing High Energy Costs
When having an Amber AC installed in an older residence, it pays to take the home’s layout into account. It’s better not to have air vents near windows or doors, for example. If this is actually the case in your home, you’ll want to aim the vents away from these openings. Another thing–you have to make sure there’s no furniture or other items blocking the air vents. This helps ensure a smoother, more balanced flow of air in the space while preventing significant energy loss.
Did you know that aiming or redirecting air vents isn’t the only way to make the most of your HVAC system’s efficiency? You should also consider partially closing the vents in rooms you don’t often use. This reduces the amount of heated or cooled air that enters these unused spaces, and at the same time prevents some of the issues involved with limiting a room’s airflow, such as mold growth or static pressure.
