Why doesn’t the heat in my house work?


There are a variety of different problems that could prevent your HVAC system from heating your home. The most common source of heat in an HVAC system is a furnace. Some furnaces operate on gas while others may run on electricity. If the heat in your home is not working the root of the problem is likely the furnace. Whether you have a gas furnace or an electric furnace, problems can arise that prevent your home from being properly heated. 

Another common reason the heat in your house may not be working is a faulty thermostat. The thermostat tells the HVAC system what the temperature in the home is. If the sensor in the thermostat is misreading the temperature in your house, it won’t turn on the heat. If the heat fails to turn on the temperature in your home will stay cooler than you would like in the winter.

If both your thermostat and furnace are working properly the heating problem could be caused by leaking ducts. Leaking ducts cause conditioned air to escape into areas of the home that do not need to be heated or cooled. When you have leaky ducts it will have an effect on both your air conditioning and your heat. If your air conditioner worked fine all summer long but now your heat does not work, the problem is likely related to the furnace or the thermostat. If your heat is not working, or you would like your heat to be inspected before cooler weather arrives, contact Coastal Home Services.
