Why Is Your House So Cold?

Turned up the heat but just can’t get comfortable? One of these could be your cold air culprits:

An Old Air Filter

If you can’t recall when you last changed your furnace’s air filter, check it now to make sure it’s not dirty or clogged. It’s a task that’s easy to overlook, but regular replacement keeps your system working at maximum capacity. If the filter is clogged, it could be blocking warm air from flowing freely through your ductwork.

Cold Air Is Sneaking In

Is your home properly insulated from the outdoors? It could feel too cold at home if outdoor air is making its way inside by way of windows, doors, and unseen cracks. Check these spots, then seal any problem areas with caulk, weatherstripping, or a door sweep to keep the cold air out.

A Lack of Humidity

It’s normal for home humidity levels to drop during winter. What you might not realize is that these low levels lead to more than just dry skin and static electricity. They can also make your home feel too cold. Have your humidity levels checked, then consider installing a whole-home humidifier to bring moisture—and warmth levels—back up.

You Need Furnace Maintenance or Repair

If you’ve checked all the items above and none of them seem to be the issue, then it’s time to have your furnace checked out. If you don’t schedule regular maintenance, chances are that a tune-up or repair will take care of the problem. It’s important to have furnace maintenance done each year to stay ahead of unexpected breakdowns. When we check out your HVAC system, we can also make adjustments or repairs if needed.
