Common winter heating issues

  • Heater won’t turn on: When the season starts, you may encounter trouble with your heater failing to turn on at all. Perhaps it comes on at some times and not others. A common reason for this is a thermostat miscalibration that developed during the summer and fall, which means the thermostat isn’t recording the correct colder temperature that will make it signal that the heater needs to turn on. Your heater may need more serious repairs to its motor or fuel supply—troubles that could have developed from neglect during the months it sat idle.
  • Uneven heating: If your heater does come on, but some rooms aren’t getting warm, then there are a number of possibilities to check. Vents might be blocked or shut. Hot air may be escaping through cracks around the edges of windows or outside doors. The insulation could be deteriorating. Don’t immediately leap to the conclusion that the heater is malfunctioning—although this may ultimately be the reason. Have an HVAC expert come to your house to help you discover the source of the problem.
  • Unexpectedly high bills: If you’ve already gone through one heating season with your current system, you will know what to expect to see on your energy bills when your heater comes on for the season. But should you discover surprise spikes on your monthly bills, then your heater may have a malfunction that developed over the summer. Schedule repairs right away before the issue becomes worse.
