While cold weather is more commonly associated with the Northeast or the Midwest than it is with Georgia, those of us that have lived here for a while know that our winters can get plenty cold. It won’t be long before nighttime temperatures are dropping down right around the freezing range. If you are serious about living comfortably when that happens, you are going to need to heat your home successfully.
Just because your heater in Summerville, GA is up and running doesn’t mean that it is going to do the job properly, though. One issue that some homeowners encounter is the uneven heating of their homes. There are many reasons why this problem may develop, so read on to learn more about potential causes.
It should go without saying that a heater that is too small for your home is not going to impress with its performance. Where is the cold spot in your home? If it is far from the indoor heating unit, then it is possible that the system is running out of steam when trying to heat areas further from the heat source. Unfortunately, there is not a lot that can be done to “fix” this problem. Replacing the heater with an appropriately sized alternative may be necessary.
If you use a forced air heating system, then you are using air ducts in order to distribute heated air throughout your residence. If any of these air ducts are leaking, the areas that they service may not be as warm as others. Poor duct insulation and even bad duct design can also lead to such problems.
Insulation plays a key role in preventing unwanted heat transfer into or out of your home. That means that it helps to keep heat in your living space during the winter season. If you don’t have enough insulation of the right R-value in any spot of your home, that area will likely feel drafty.
