Should I Control Temperatures Indoors by Closing Registers?

Posted by Ed Miller on Thu, Jan 24, 2019

Anyone who lives in a place with temperature extremes understands the importance of balancing comfort and budget. Though it may be tempting to turn the air conditioner up to a gale-force Arctic breeze during the hottest days of summer, or to crank the heater to Death Valley levels for the chilly winter, consumers know that a steady hand on the thermostat will save them money in the end. Instead, they may look for other ways to achieve the balance between their cold feet and their pocketbooks.


For many, economical climate control for the home may include closing the vents or registers in unused rooms. The belief that preventing air flow to one room will require less of the system and will divert conditioned air to rooms that need it may seem a natural assumption, but it is also an incorrect one. Closing the vents to unused rooms will not save you money, and in fact can end up costing you more money in the long run.
