Three HVAC Problems That Affect Heating 

As temperatures begin to drop, homeowners may begin to notice their homes not warming up enough. Heaters allow for warmth in homes, which is especially important during cooler months leading into winter. HVAC systems, however, that have problems can lead to poor indoor air quality. This is why homeowners need to check in with HVAC technicians about potential furnace repairs or thermostat services. No one wants to be left without a properly working heating system during the winter months. 

The following are three common HVAC problems that may be affecting homeowners' abilities to heat their homes.

Problem 1: An Improperly Sized Unit

One of the most common mistakes a homeowner can make is choosing an improperly sized unit for their home. Installing an improperly sized unit can lead to problems with heating a home. Although homeowners can choose a properly sized unit, it is always recommended to leave this task to professions, such as furnace installation technicians. There are dire consequences that can occur because of an improperly sized unit, including:

  • Higher electric bills
  • Cold drafts
  • Too little power 
  • Excess of humidity

It is better to avoid these consequences by calling a heater installation technician.

Problem 2: Thermostat Problemsthermostat

Another common problem homeowners may encounter is thermostat problems, leading to issues with the home's heating system. Thermostat problems are endless but relatively simple. The most common thermostat problems that affect central heating are:

  • Improper thermostat installation
  • Dead batteries
  • Thermostat positioning
  • Thermostat needs to be cleaned
  • Thermostat is broken

Although these problems may appear simple, they can severely impact how well a heating service can work. These problems can affect the heating system by tricking it into believing the inside of a home is already at the set temperature. A thermostat services technician should fix these simple problems to ensure that the thermostat works properly again. 

Problem 3: Debris Collecting Around the Outdoor Unithvac

One should clean outdoor units often. Since central heating units placed outdoors are in the open, they are more susceptible to clogs and damage from objects. Falling leaves are one of the most often seen items in clogged units. Debris can include dirt, animal fur, and food wrappers as well. 

While it may seem like debris collecting around or in an outdoor unit is a minimal problem, it comes with many consequences. Debris trapped in an outdoor unit can decrease the indoor air quality as the outdoor unit is unclear. This debris, especially dust and dirt, can be brought into the air.

If debris is not cleared from inside or outside the outdoor unit, the heating system will not function properly because it is blocked. This can cause higher electric bills as well as a decrease in clean air quality in a home. It can also cause long-term problems if not corrected right away, which is why homeowners need to call an HVAC technician when there are heating problems.
