Circulating warm air properly can help you reduce the amount you spend on your gas bill and avoid overusing your HVAC to the point that it would break down. If your furnace isn’t powerful enough or your vents or filter might be too dirty to allow for proper circulation of air, then your rooms won’t warm up, even though your furnace might be working overtime.
So it’s very important to consider a few basic maintenance tasks done by Pasterkamp of Denver to ensure that everything is working properly:
- The first thing you need to do is to check your thermostat, as it could be that it’s turned on low for a particular room. That means no matter how much you pump energy into your furnace, some rooms will warm up just right, while others will stay cold.
- Clean your vents or hire an expert to do it for you. Also, it’s a good idea to check if your vents might be punctured or damage, as heat can easily leak out that way.
- Check to see if you have proper insulation in the room in question. Without it, heat can escape through the very walls that are supposed to keep it in.
- Make sure you replace your HVAC filter at least once every 90 days or so. You can usually get away with doing that less often, but only if you purchase a better quality filter than the standard one, which might cost more money.
