Why Isn’t My Heating System Keeping My Home Warm?
Your heating system has one job – to keep you and your Richmond household warm! How well is it performing this winter? Have you noticed your heating system isn’t keeping your home as comfortable as you would like?
If you find yourself looking high and low for relief from the cold weather, there are a few possible causes for the rooms in your home to have uneven temperatures.
Dirty Air Filters
A dirty air filter is a blocked air filter – this can keep the heated air from reaching the areas where you need it most! Changing your filters regularly can help prevent this from becoming a problem.
Air Duct Problems
Sometimes there can be problems with the ductwork of your home – whether they’re beginning to separate, causing heated air to leak into the spaces behind the walls, or they’re accumulating dust and inhibiting air flow the condition of your ducts are vital to your comfort!
Poor Home Insulation
Not directly related to your heating equipment, but if your home’s insulation is old, worn out or completely missing the cold air is going to have an easy time getting in, and your heated air will be just as eager to escape out into the neighborhood.
Is your heating system more than a decade old? How about two decades? As heating equipment gets older, its efficiency degrades and its coverage can lessen, resulting in increased heating costs without the heat you’d expect!
