Maintenance agreements provide regular maintenance for HVAC units and systems. But what happens if your HVAC isn't working properly or providing the performance you require? Your HVAC technician can answer any questions you may have, including how to fix uneven cooling issues. Here are four remedies to solve such problems:

1. Install a Zoned HVAC System

No matter how well-designed and installed a ductwork system is, it may not have the ability to cool a home evenly. This is because different areas of the home may have different temperatures, yet there is only one thermostat to sense when the air conditioner must turn on or off, and one network of ductwork to provide cool air for the entire home

With a zoned HVAC system, each zone will have its own thermostat and independent ductwork system to cool that particular area, regardless of what the temperature is in another zone. This will allow for more even cooling of the home.

2. Check for Open Air Flow through Vents

A blocked vent is a common explanation for why a room isn't as cool as it should be. This might stem from a vent you manually closed and forgot about or furniture interfering with the flow of air from a vent. If a room isn't getting the amount of air the HVAC contractor and building architect intended, it should be no surprise if there is uneven cooling.

3. Ensure Proper Air Circulation

For a central air conditioner to evenly cool a home, there must be proper air flow. But air can't flow when the doors to rooms are not left open. Depending on the ductwork, certain rooms will be colder than normal while others are warmer than normal. To help promote even cooling of your home, make sure all doors stay open.

4. Install a Dehumidifier

An uneven level of humidity in the home is another reason certain parts of your home may have uneven cooling. As you probably already know, higher humidity will feel warmer than lower humidity. To remedy humidity issues in certain areas of the home, such as around the kitchen, you can use a standalone dehumidifier to reduce that room's air moisture content.
