Why Won’t My Whole Home Heat Up?

Posted on December 22nd, 2020 by Devine Bros

Do you have issues with your heating system that cause only a few rooms to warm up and the rest to stay cold? It can be such a hassle to deal with, especially during the coldest nights in winter. You want to be comfortable in your own home, so getting this issue fixed the second you notice problems should be a top priority. Here are some of the reasons why this might be happening and what a professional can do to get your home fully warm again. 

Issues You Could Be Facing: 

  • Poor ventilation: If airflow for your HVAC or furnace has a block or is not flowing as it should be, it will be difficult for your whole house to heat up evenly. A dirty air filter is often the cause of this problem, especially if you haven’t changed it in a long time. We recommend that you change your air filters every two to three months. Double-check the filters in rooms that are cooler than others. 
  • Short-cycling: When your furnace fails to complete a full cycle, the heat won’t travel to every room in your home. It will run for a bit and then turn off early or run at uneven intervals throughout the day. There could be several reasons for short-cycling, including broken parts or vent issues. Either way, you’ll want to have a professional come in and find the root of the hiccup so that you don’t have to worry about freezing in this winter. 
  • Problems with the thermostat: Do you find that some rooms won’t heat up at all, while at other times some rooms are way too warm? This can happen when there is some disconnect between your thermostat and heating system, causing all sorts of temperature differences in your home. You’ll have to call in a professional to fix the miscalibrated tech and to reinstall it correctly. 
  • Old furnace: If it has been a very long time since you last got an upgrade for your furnace or HVAC system, old age can easily be the culprit for uneven heating in your house. The simple answer is to finally get the upgrade you deserve so that you can be comfortable in winter!
