Your Registers are Blocked

Make sure that your heating registers aren’t covered by furniture, pillows, rugs or anything else. If they are, just close them, but make sure you don’t close more than 10-20% of the vents in your home, because that can restrict airflow and cause other problems. You may also want to check inside your registers to remove any dust and debris that might be blocking airflow.

Your Filter is Clogged

If your filter is clogged, your furnace won’t be able to get the fresh air it needs to heat effectively. Change it and wait an hour or so to see if that solved your problem.

Your Heat Pump or Blower are Broken

Even if the furnace has power, it won’t heat effectively if your heat pump or your blower aren’t functioning optimally. If you don’t feel air coming out of your vents or it seems like less is coming out than was previously, it may be time to bring a professional and have your furnace tested.

Your Furnace is Too Small

If your furnace isn’t large enough, it won’t be able to effectively pump air throughout your home no matter how efficiently it works. One of our heating pros can assess the situation and let you know if this is your problem.

You Have a Heat Leak

Heat could be leaking out of your home in a number of ways. If you have leaky places in your roof or walls, these will also let heat escape. Holes in your ducts can also be places where your heat gets out. If too much heat escapes, your furnace won’t be able to keep up and you’ll get cold in some rooms of your house.

If you can’t find the problem but you know your heat isn’t even, contact us at Chad Love Services right away. We’ll find the issue and fix it fast so you can stay warm all winter long.
