It’s finally getting cold here in Florida. Because of this, there’s no doubt in our mind that you’re using your heater more often than ever before. We know that heating really isn’t our main thing in Florida, but this doesn’t mean you can turn a blind eye to your heater. You’re realizing that now more than ever because your heater just isn’t performing the way it used to.
When you turned on your heater this winter, your heater wasn’t firing away the way it normally does. This is when you need to call in one of our heating professionals for heating in Port St. Lucie, FL. Uneven heating is a terrible sign of future heating troubles. When we say “future,” we want you to know that this future can come up on you quite quickly. So let’s talk about what’s happening…
What’s Going On?
Here’s what might be going on with your home’s heater if you have uneven heating:
A Clogged Filter
You need to replace the filter in your home’s heater before the start of the season. We’re in the winter season now, which means that you should have replaced your home’s filter once in fall and once in winter too. A clogged filter is always bad news. It leads to the uneven heating that’s currently plaguing your home. Swap out your filter before the winter season goes any further.
Sometimes, those fall and spring seasons where the temperatures are less extreme embolden you to do certain things. If you’ve moved around some furniture, posters, or any other things in your home, make sure that none of these items are in front of a vent. This can directly cause uneven heating in your home. A blocked vent creates a needless problem in your home.
Your thermostat just isn’t really “reading” like it used to anymore. During this time of year, you might notice that your home reads much warmer than it actually is. Because of this though, you might notice that your home’s heater won’t turn on when you want it to heat up your home. We know you might start to tinker with your thermostat more often to work around this. You shouldn’t have to do this, however. If your thermostat starts to malfunction, it might be time for you to upgrade.
Worn-Out Heating System
If your heater has been worn down over time, then it’s time to make an honest assessment. A heater that you’ve had for close to a decade or a heater that has constant repair needs is a heater that should be replaced.
