Monday, January 15th, 2024

Uneven heating is a common problem that people face in their homes during winter. The central heating system is running, parts of the house are warming up to comfortable levels, but some rooms stay cold. If the house has always had this problem, then the issue is likely poor insulation in those rooms. You can improve the insulation or ask our HVAC team for options like using ductless mini splits to help those hard-to-warm spots.

If, however, the uneven heating is a new phenomenon, the HVAC system is probably the culprit. We’re going to look at what might be wrong with the heater and recommend the appropriate heating service in Decatur, GA that may be able to correct it.

What to Do About Uneven Heating in Your Commercial Property

Monday, January 30th, 2023

Commercial spaces present big challenges when it comes to heating and cooling them. Even smaller commercial facilities are larger than the average-sized home and have far more people in them. Businesses often contain large, heat-creating equipment and have special climate requirements. For example, server rooms need to have specialized cooling and ventilation to prevent computer equipment from overheating.

One of the major challenges for commercial heating is ensuring proper heat distribution. A home may be able to get away with a few rooms that are colder than the others, but this isn’t something that should occur in a commercial space (unless by specific design, such as in a server room). If you begin to hear complaints about cold spots in your commercial business from employees, customers, clients, tenants, etc., it’s something you’ll want fixed. We’ll look at the ways our professionals can help improve your commercial heating in Covington, GA when it’s uneven.

Is Your Upper Floor Getting Too Hot When the Heater Is On?

Monday, December 19th, 2022

Heat rises. This is a basic scientific fact that most people learned in elementary school. It’s also a fact that can turn into a problem when you live in a two-story home. Heat moves through the floors to collect at the top of the building, creating too much warmth in second-floor rooms.

When you use a central heating system for your house, you expect the heater to provide an even distribution of warmth to all the rooms. But you may run into the problem of an overheated upper floor in your home when your heating system is running. You have the heater sending heat to both levels, and then heat from the lower floor rises to the upper floor, resulting in temperatures possibly too high for comfort.

Is this something you just have to “deal with”? Or are there solutions?

Why Won’t My Electric Furnace Heat Up Enough?

Monday, November 21st, 2022

Because we don’t get winters as deeply cold as more northern states, many of our homes can get by through the winter with the power of an electric furnace. Electric furnaces don’t have the heating capacity of gas furnaces, but they can still do the job of providing warmth around a house. They also have the advantage of fewer malfunctions and long service lives. 

But the reliability of an electric furnace isn’t ironclad. You may run into a problem where your electric furnace turns on, but you aren’t getting the usual level of heat from it, even if you crank up the thermostat as high as possible. What’s causing this?
