There’s nothing worse than having heating and air conditioning problems when the outside temperature is less than ideal. This couldn’t be truer than in the winter when the weather outside is frightful. One common problem is having the heat shut off before the home is comfortable. Here’s why it might happen:
If your thermostat isn’t calibrated correctly it could impact its ability to correctly gauge the temperature. Since the thermostat is the captain of the ship when it comes to heating your home, if it isn’t working properly, the heating system can’t work properly. This is a common cause of the heating system shutting off before your home is at a comfortable temperature.
A safeguard on heating systems is the limit switch. If the furnace overheats, the limit switch will shut it down as a precaution to prevent damage or fire. If your heater shuts off before the desired temperature has been reached, this could be the problem.
The most common reason for this is a dirty or clogged filter. If the air can’t flow effectively through the system it can cause overheating, and if the filter is blocked, airflow is blocked. Other causes include blocked return air vents or too many closed vents throughout the home.
These are just a couple of the potential causes of heating system issues that prevent your home from reaching the right temperature. Having a technician out to inspect your furnace is the best way to determine the root cause of the problem and have it fixed.
The technician was on time and prompt. Very professional and didn't try to upsell me. I would recommend him to others and would use him again in the future. He was forthright and straight up about my unit. I appreciated his honesty.read more
