Why Is My Heat Not Working?

Posted on February 22nd, 2019 by Devine Bros

Picture this: It’s a cold winter afternoon and you can see your own breath inside your home — not a good sign! This, among the shivering might be an indicator that your heating system isn’t working as it should, which is something to certainly have looked at during the year. If you’re experiencing a cold front indoors, make sure to check below for some of the common reasons.

Broken Heating System

Find out where the heat is coming from, and check to see if the unit is properly functioning or not. If it isn’t, it might be time to call an expert and have the unit serviced. This can be prevented by also having routine maintenance done on your unit, which can keep it from breaking down when you need it most.

Look For Drafts

Walk along the walls and near windows and observe for a draft coming in. While this might be a bit harder, it’s very easy to detect wind motion and locate a potential draft at home. Should you experience a draft, have it inspected as soon as possible so you’re not wasting energy or thinking that your heat isn’t doing its job.

If you think you’re losing heat this winter, don’t just crank the thermostat and think it’s over and done with — have it looked at! The last thing you need is a huge replacement and a hefty bill due to what was once a small issue.
