Why Are There Cold Spots in My Home?

When you run your home heating system, you expect that system to heat your home effectively and evenly throughout. That is why the development of cold spots throughout one’s home is of such cause for concern. There are quite a few reasons as to why your home may develop cold spots throughout, and only a trained, professional heating technician can tell you with certainty what problem(s) you are up against. If you have cold spots in your household, make sure that you contact a member of our team to schedule any potential heating repairs in Everett, WA. No matter what the problem may be, G & S Heating Cooling & Electric is the company that you want on the case.

Insufficient Insulation

One common cause of cold spots is one that actually does not necessitate heating repairs. If you have an area of your home that is not sufficiently insulated, then the heat that you pay for to keep your home warm and comfortable can transfer right out of that area with ease. This not only leaves this area uncomfortably cold, but will also cause your heating bills to spike.

Damaged Ductwork

If you use a furnace or a heat pump to heat your home, then you rely on ductwork to distribute heated air throughout your living space. If this ductwork is torn, leaky, or otherwise compromised, then you are going to wind up spilling heat into areas that may not need it, while those that do are going to wind up being insufficiently heated.

Improper Sizing

Another potential cause for cold spots in your home is an undersized heater. If your heater has always struggled to heat your home evenly, then there is a good chance that it is just too small to do so. Unfortunately, there is no quick fix for an undersized heater, and you may need to replace it with an appropriately sized system if you hope to heat your home more successfully.
