Why Isn’t My Furnace Heating My Entire Home?

3 Reasons Your Furnace Isn’t Heating

Whether your problem is centralized to a specific area of the home, or impacts the entirety of your space, the problems you could be having are actually quite diverse. Many things lead to low quality heating, and so to address your specific problem, we’ll have to do a bit of process of elimination.

Let’s start at the simplest and work our way down:

User Error Problems

User error is actually really, really common, and if this ends up providing you with a solution then you shouldn’t be embarrassed—just glad that you didn’t have to shell out for a repair!

  • Check the thermostat. Is your thermostat set to “heat,” and set to an appropriate temperature? It may seem silly, but it’s a good place to start, since sometimes we can bump the settings without noticing.
  • Check the vents in your home. All vents in your home should be open, and completely unobstructed. Inactive vents lead to airflow problems and fluctuations in air pressure, which can keep your furnace from performing effectively.
  • Look for closed doors. Same issue as with the vents; too many closed doors can lead to constricting in airflow. This issue is less or more important depending on your unique system, but it’s worth a shot.

Quick Fix Solutions

These aren’t guaranteed to solve your furnace woes, but they’re simple, fast, and might provide you with the quality relief you’re looking for:

  • Change your air filter. Dust-caked air filters will keep your furnace from heating properly, and can even lead to a total system breakdown. Check your filter to be sure it’s fresh!
  • Clean the outdoor unit. Make sure nothing has gummed up or jammed your outdoor unit. Thick clogs of ice and deposits of dead leaves are commonly associated with cold spots and bad heat.

Professional Service Solutions

If you’ve gone through the list and you’re still getting shoddy heat, we’d recommend calling in the experts! Our team can find and solve your problems without fail. Some services that we might recommend include:

  • Furnace repair. If a fault is found in your system, our team can provide furnace repair services that can help you restore your comfort.
  • Furnace replacement. It may simply be that your current furnace can’t quite meet your needs. Maybe it was sized incorrectly or has simply gotten too old. If this is the case, a new system can offer more comfort, more efficiency, and more heating assurance.
  • Thermostat upgrades. Outdated electrical components like old thermostats can often make an otherwise great furnace fall short of its capabilities.

Is your furnace underperforming, or leaving portions of your home cold? Contact Signature HVAC for perfect service solutions!

The process was very customer focused starting from Scott McHale's engagement to organize the project to replace our old A/C, to an professional job John & Matt had done in installation, and Bob Seeger'r post installation service to troubleshoot the air flow damper, great job."

"Bob Seeger was our technician this time around. His level of professionalism was exceptional - it really stood out! Overall we are very happy that we switched to Signature several years ago!"

-Mark Kenney

"The Signature techs who come out to our house are always top-notch professionals. Very courteous, careful, and thorough. They always provide great explanations of the work that they are doing. I never feel like I am being pressured into unnecessary work or equipment replacement (like I used to feel with Service Experts). Today, Wade was the tech who came out. He was here exactly on time at 8am, and was done within an hour. Great work and another great service experience from Signature! Update 9/27/2016 - Today Bob Seeger came out to service our system in preparation for the winter. I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and courtesy. Before he started, we sat down and he clearly explained what he would be doing as part of the maintenance, and we agreed upon the need to replace the filter on the main unit, and also to perform humidifier maintenance as part of the work. After the work was complete he made recommendations for overall system enhancements that we should consider. Signature really has top-notch people working for them, and I continue to be extremely happy that we switched over to them several years ago."

-Mark Kenney

"Bob Seeger was our person to service our furnace and water heater. He showed me a problem with our water heater that could have been a major problem. He was very honest, great and so efficient! He fixed the problem. I am kind of hoping he will be the one to work with in the spring."

-Debbie Kaba

"Always feel confident with the work performed by Danny from Signature."

-William Stolting

"Bob was quite knowledgeable of the type of geothermal system that I have in my house. Before completing the annual maintenance/tune-up that I had requested, he asked relevant questions about my geothermal system (e.g., date of installation, last service, temperature preference, electric usage, etc.). After inspecting and servicing my system, Bob explain service that my system needed now and recommendations that would benefit my system. He explained the options in a non-pressured approach, as well as, the benefit in joining Signature HVAC's service plan which was helpful. Throughout the service visit, Bob was courteous, friendly and respectful. My wife and I were very satisfied and we plan to continue to use Signature HVAC in the future."

-John Schmitt

"Bob did an excellent job. He showed up on time, was courteous, and respectful. I recommend using Bob S from Signature Heating and Air-conditioning."

-Dennis Carlson

"Great service as always. Always prompt and knowledgeable."

-Adam Lusk

"Bob was very professional and informative on the heating & air condition job at my house. He is a very nice and caring person! Thank you!"

-Colleen Esgro

"Your whole team is outstanding."

-John price

"Daniel Cross (Signature) completed a thorough and quick fall service on my heating systems. What I liked best about Danny is that he spoke to me as a knowledgeable customer rather than treating me like a clueless homeowner. So refreshing to be treated with respect by an HVAC provider! He had an opportunity to "upsell" me on a service, but was honest and told me that it wasn't valuable in my situation. I would certainly trust him to service my equipment again, and would definitely recommend him to a friend."

-Susan Wentz

"Thanks again for walking me through the process and pointing out what was going on in my system. Mold be gone! Professional and friendly service. Thanks for your help."

-Mia Bosna

"Travis is another courteous, fine professional working for you!"

-John price

-Ric DeAngelis

"We are very pleased with Signature and their very knowledgeable Technicians. We will be continuing our By-Annual service/tune-up with them...."

-Ric DeAngelis

"I have used Signature for about 10 years now. They provide excellent service. Bob Seeger was my most recent technician and he was on time, polite, informative, and technically proficient. I highly recommend signature for your HVAC needs. I have geothermal, and they are excellent at this technology."

-Charlie Phillips

"Mike B came out for the biannual check of the upstairs system--we had replaced the downstairs system in June---we are very satisfied. Mike was thorough, very professional, answered all my (sometimes inane) questions and kept the house clean. Good job Mike and thanks."
