My home has been having difficulty staying warm, and this concerned me.
Last winter, even though I had the heater on a lot, I still noticed my home was not that warm! I couldn’t have the furnace system running all of the time, because not only is that hard on the machine, but that will make my monthly bills spike! So for most of last winter, I just had to deal with the frosty temperatures.
However, now that winter is back around the corner, I don’t plan on going another cold winter again. I plan on keeping my home warm this year. I knew that it likely wasn’t the heater itself, because the heating device was still fairly new. So, I looked for other reasons why the home could not stay warm like it should be. One was the thermostat, but I figured the thermostat likely wasn’t the cause either. So then I thought about sealing all of the cracks in my home. After I had successfully sealed all of the cracks in my home, I was disappointed to see that it didn’t make much of a difference. I was running out of ideas, so I relied on a professional HVAC tech to tell me what I should do. Luckily, the heating and A/C professional was able to tell me what the problem was, and it was that the ductwork had holes in it. Luckily, this is an easy fix, and he was able to repair it in no time. And that was the issue, almost immediately, my home became really warm, almost too warm, and I was glad to have a heated home again.
