Some Rooms Are Warm, Others Are Cold
Ductwork is the pathway through your home that spreads warm air. A leak in the ductwork can cause uneven heating. Is your heater in the garage or on one end of the house? If so, the air has to travel farther, making some rooms warm and others cold.
Ask your Green Apple Plumbing & Mechanical HVAC professional to help you identify the real problem. They can show you your options. Maybe you need some tests done, or a two-stage furnace. Two-stage furnaces blow at high and low speeds, instead of just “on” and “off”. This can help spread the air through your house more evenly. Our experts can also offer options for supplemental heating sources if your furnace isn’t centrally located in the home.
High Energy Bills
Have we mentioned to check the furnace filter? A dirty filter can make your energy costs go up by 15%!
Do you have a swamp cooler? In the winter, a damper needs to be placed in the ductwork leading to the cooler. Otherwise, the warm air you’ve paid to heat your home escapes to the outside and you’re just wasting energy and money.
Your Heater Makes Loud Noises
Banging, whirring or strange clicking noises are not a good sign. Your heater could be trying to tell you that the motor is going out. It may be slow and noisy to start up. There could also be something stuck in the ductwork like flapping tape. An HVAC Green Apple Plumbing & Mechanical professional can help you pinpoint the noise.
