Q: Should I close the registers and doors to areas of the home that I do not use on a regular basis? Check out some tips on HVAC System Efficiencies and Best Practices.

A: Generally speaking, “No”. More often than not, closing the registers will decrease the systems’ airflow and efficiency. Properly sized systems are designed to cool a certain number of square feet. By closing registers and doors in certain rooms, you disrupt the airflow and cause your air conditioning system to work harder to distribute air to other areas of your home. Your system will work harder, to cool less space, making it cycle more and become less efficient.
