There’s nothing worse than a chilly, drafty house in the winter. If you’ve done everything you can to winterize your home, and still spent winters shivering while indoors, it may be time to consider a furnace upgrade or replacement. Standard Heating & Air Conditioning is happy to help you keep your home warm this winter.
Choose a Furnace That’s the Proper Size
If your furnace is working properly, but your home is still chilly, you may not have the proper equipment for the size of your home. Our friendly professionals are happy to help you evaluate your heating system to help you ensure that you have correctly sized equipment. There are many available furnaces at Standard Heating & Air Conditioning — we’ll help you find the one that’s just right for your home.
Keep Your Heating System Clean
If your furnace filters are clogged or dirty, the air won’t flow through the system properly. This can cause your home to be too cool, but may also cause serious issues with your equipment. For the best results, change your air filter every one to two months.
If you are unsure how to do this properly, call our professionals for a service appointment and allow them to maintain your heating system for you. Making sure that your heating system is clean and functioning well will help you keep your home warm this winter, so be sure to take the time to properly maintain it.
Broken or Improperly Installed Thermostat
Your thermostat communicates with your furnace so that it knows when to turn on and off in order to keep your home at the desired temperature. If your thermostat is broken or failing to communicate properly, your furnace won’t know when to turn on and you may find that your home is frequently too cold. A malfunctioning thermostat may mean that you’re cold in your home, even if your furnace is working properly because it simply doesn’t turn on frequently enough.
If your thermostat is improperly installed or installed in the wrong area of your home, you may find that your furnace doesn’t turn on as frequently as you’d like. This is especially common if your thermostat is installed on a wall that catches direct sunlight, or if it is installed in a room in your home that stays warmer than average. Call a service professional if you’re experiencing these issues so that they can help you keep your home warm.
When your furnace equipment isn’t functioning properly, it’s difficult to keep your home comfortable. If you’re tired of being chilly, even while indoors, it may be time to consider installing a new furnace or checking your thermostat. There are many types and styles of furnaces at Standard Heating & Air Conditioning. We will work with you to choose the one that’s just the right fit for your home. Call our friendly professionals today so we can help you get ready for winter!
