Top 3 Most Common Heating Problems
We’re in the final stretch of winter, with less than a month to go before the official start of spring. Just because it’s the end of the “official” winter, we all know in Johnstown, Colorado we will probably see winter all the way through the end of May. This doesn’t mean an instant end to colder weather and putting your home heating system into summer hibernation just yet. In fact, this is the time of year when you’re most likely to encounter operating problems with your heater, since it’s had plenty of time to build up wear and tear during the past few months, and the strain can lead to it failing on you at a time when you still need it.
Watch carefully for the following problems emerging during this final lap of winter weather:
- Uneven heating: You may notice when the heater is running that some rooms are not receiving the level of warmth they should. This can point to a number of different issues. If you use a boiler, it may mean blockage is stopping water from circulating to all points. A furnace or heat pump may have ventilation leaks. Let professionals look at the heater and determine what the problem is.
- Clogged air filter: For forced-air heating systems (heat pumps and furnaces) the air filter that protects them from debris will become heavily clogged by the close of winter if it hasn’t been regularly changed each month. This will lead to low airflow, higher bills, and a system that shuts off early because of excess heat trapped inside it.
- Miscalibrated thermostat: A common trouble that affects heating systems comes from issues with the thermostat. Over the winter a thermostat can become miscalibrated so that it reads incorrect temperatures. This will lead to the heater behaving oddly, coming on and off at the wrong times. Technicians can recalibrate the thermostat, although in some cases replacing it with a newer model is the better plan.
