In New Jersey, winters can get cold and uncomfortable. When the temperatures drop, you want to trust that your heating system is providing the warmth you need for comfort and safety. Your heating system should be able to ensure that every room in your home is well-heated. If you are noticing cold spots throughout your home, this could be an indication of a few different issues.
A common culprit of cold spots in the home is areas of poor insulation that are allowing the cold air from outside to seep into your home. It is beneficial to first check around all windows and door frames for a tight seal. In some instances, you may be able to feel the cold air coming in. You can also hold a candle or lighter up to the window, watching to see if the flame dances or stands still. Repairing or replacing these problem areas can help prevent cold spots and save you money on wasted hot air escaping your home.
Clogged Air Filter
If you have a forced air system, a blocked filter can make it more difficult for air to travel through your ductwork, reducing the efficiency and output of your system. Inhibited air flow directly impacts how much warm air circulates through your living space.
Leaks in Ductwork
Leaks in your ductwork can impact how much warm air travels through your vents. It can be difficult to assess this issue as the majority of your ductwork may be difficult to access. If you are concerned about the quality of your ductwork, a professional can thoroughly investigate the condition of your system.
