One of the most common reasons that a heater may not heat the space its intended for as well as it should from the get-go is due to improper sizing upon installation. If you inherited your current Peachtree City, GA heating system with your home and notice this problem, then chances are you need to upgrade your system to one that is appropriately sized and fitted for your specific home and needs.
Of course, this is not the only reason your heater may be working inefficiently. There are a number of factors to take into consideration when determining the efficiency of any of your home comfort appliances, and there are a few reasons that your heater might not be heating your home evenly. We’ve covered this below, and offered some suggestions on just how to achieve the even heating that you and your family deserve all winter long.

When you are seeking a way to most efficiently heat and cool your home, you can’t do much better than having a zoned HVAC system installed. Zoning allows you to have multiple air handlers and subsequent thermostats throughout your home, so that you can customize the temperature in each room. Not only is this more efficient than any other option—you don’t have to heat or cool unoccupied rooms—but it’s also a great way to prevent family arguments as everyone has control over their own temperature!
It is possible to adapt a zone control system to your existing central air conditioner or furnace. But if you’re in the market for a new HVAC system or are at least considering one, then you’d do well to keep a Whittier, NC ductless split heating and cooling system in mind. Ductless systems are extremely efficient and deliver a consistent, quiet flow of conditioned air to keep you and your home comfortable all year-round. However, they can only work to their fullest potential if they are correctly sized for your home to begin with.

Most homeowners assume that so long as their ductwork is blowing heated or cooled air throughout their living space, which those air ducts are working just fine. Unfortunately, many people don’t realize that their ductwork may actually be working inefficiently, negatively impacting your indoor air quality and the performance of your HVAC systems.
Since your air ducts are not particularly visible in your home, problems with the ductwork can often go undiagnosed and unresolved for a long time. When you schedule professional duct testing, however, you don’t have to worry about this. But when should you consider this service?

When your heat pump is operating as it should, it typically makes a fairly quite noise, described as a whirring sound when the compressor comes on to start the heat exchange process. You shouldn’t be able to hear any other noises aside from this when your heat pump is running. If you are, then you more than likely have something wrong with your heat pump that requires your attention.

The great thing about using a heat pump to condition your home is that it is so versatile. With one unit, you can achieve year-round comfort. This is an affordable alternative to investing in both a central AC unit and a furnace, for starters. Plus, a heat pump requires much less space in your home than these other two systems would combined.

With temperatures steadily dropping, you’ve hopefully already scheduled your heating maintenance appointment. If your heater seems to be working just fine, or if you’ve only recently just bought it, then you may be tempted to skip your maintenance appointment this year. However, this can be detrimental to your system, and your wallet.
It’s never too early or too late to think about scheduling heating maintenance, so long as this is done at least once a year (or twice a year if you have a heat pump). Scheduling maintenance before you actually need to use your system is best. But either way, the process is the same. Keep reading to learn what you can expect during your first heating maintenance appointment.
