Is your heating and air conditioning system letting you down? Why are some areas of my home colder than others? This is a common frustration with heating as the weather starts getting colder. Do you find yourself adjusting the temperature in one area of the house to make it warmer, only to discover another part of the house is now too hot? If you share this experience, some of the following issues could be to blame.
To ensure your unit is working properly, you will want to make sure you have the correct size HVAC for your home. If your unit is too small for the size of your home, it may be struggling to distribute heat. Finding the correct sized unit will help you to ensure an even temperature throughout the house.
Faulty Air Ducts
If there are cracks or holes within your air ducts, the hot air may be escaping before reaching its destination. Leaking air ducts require your HVAC system to work harder, without delivering heat to the desired location. If your air ducts are dirty, the built-up debris may negatively affect airflow throughout the system, causing cold spots in your home.
If you have recently made an addition to your home, this new area of the house may be putting stress on your original HVAC system. Updating your system with a new HVAC or adding new air ducts may help to stabilize the temperature throughout your home.
