What to Do About Uneven Heating

This winter is supposed to be a cold and snowy one, so you really need to know that your heating system is functioning at the top of its game. If not, you risk not only discomfort but high energy costs, as well. Heating your home evenly and efficiently should be a top priority, and we’re here to help you do so.

There are a number of different issues that can lead to uneven heating and cold spots in your home. Not all of them are the direct result of problems with your heater in Springfield, VT. Diagnosing the problem accurately is the first step in resolving the problems that are causing your home to heat up unevenly.

Improper Heater Sizing

When you invest in a new heating system, one of the reasons to work with qualified professionals is to guarantee that your new heater is of the right size for your home. If your system is too small for the space that it needs to heat, a lot of different problems may develop. Among the most obvious and most troublesome is uneven heating. If your heater cannot handle the heating load that your home demands, it is just not going to generate enough heat for heating the entire house effectively. Unfortunately, there is no way to “repair” this problem. Sticking space heaters in cold areas isn’t a real solution, either. Your whole-house heater should heat your whole house, and replacing your heater with an appropriately sized system may be necessary to achieve that goal.

Duct Problems

A lot of homeowners favor forced air heating systems for their prompt and effective delivery of heat throughout the house. Furnaces and heat pumps use air ducts to deliver heated air to every room in a living space. Should there be any problem with these air ducts, the heating performance will definitely be compromised. Poor duct design and installation may be to blame. If the uneven heating is a new development, then leaks in the ductwork may have developed. Whatever the case, our heating technicians will do what it takes to get your heater into prime working condition.
