“Why Won’t My Home Stay Warm?”

Your heat runs all the time… the thermostat is set, yet you can’t seem to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home or office. You may think that your home is poorly insulated, but this could also mean that there is an issue with your furnace. No heat or a lack-of could mean it’s time to have an HVAC specialist take a look.

Charleston is certainly not a very chilly place to live overall, but that’s no reason to be sitting in a cold house when the temperature does drop.

We can help. Below is a list of reasons why your home isn’t warming up.

4 Reasons Why You’re Home is Cold

  • Furnace burners are not igniting: Sometimes the burners may not be operating properly because they need to be cleaned.
  • Cracked heat exchanger: This can be a serious one. If you smell gas or hear a loud, rattling noise, your safety could be at risk. Call us right away to have a technician take a look.
  • A malfunctioning thermostat: Thermostats can become disconnected or miscalibrated. This means it won’t communicate to the furnace to turn on. A repair or upgrade will be the solution.
  • Leaks in ductwork: A leak will allow warm air to escape into your attic before it fully reaches the vent in your room. A duct test will allow us to seal or replace any damaged lines.
