Why Are There Cold Spots Throughout My House?

When you run your heating system, you want your heater to heat your entire home in an even and effective manner. If you walk through your house and notice that there are colds spots throughout, you have a problem that may require the services of a professional heating repair technician. In this day and age, homeowners should be able to live in complete comfort, regardless of what the temperature outside may be like. That is why you should let us know  if you have cold spots in your home. There are a few different potential causes of such issues. Read on to learn about some of the more common ones.

Improper Sizing

If your heater is not of the right size for your home, it is not going to heat your home evenly. If it is too small, it will fail to deliver sufficient heat throughout the house, leaving some areas colder than others. While an oversized heater will be capable of heating your home, it can actually bring temperatures up too quickly in certain areas. It can also short-cycle, turning on and off frequently, which can make it difficult to maintain a steady temperature. Unfortunately, there is no repairing this problem. A replacement will be necessary to resolve it.

Air Leaks

Do you use a forced air heating system? If so, and  you have leaky ductwork, there is no way in which you can hope to heat your home evenly. You’ll wind up leaking heated air out of your ducts in areas where it is not really needed, and those areas that do need it will be chillier than others. We can seal your ductwork to resolve the problem, and we can test it to determine if this is indeed the situation.

Insufficient Insulation

Are you seeing high heating costs, even though your home is not well-heated? This could be due to insufficient or damaged insulation. If you don’t have the right amount of insulation throughout your home, heat will transfer to the cooler environment outdoors. Our insulation services can resolve this problem.
