If your room is too hot, what do you do? Most people merely close the vent to fix the problem. What they don’t know is that doing this can throw off the balance of your system and end up reduce your energy efficiency.
So, what should you do instead? We have some tips.

Keeping these vents clear will allow your furnace to operate properly and help it regulate room temperatures better.
