Indoor Air Quality in Fieldale, VA

A comfortable home will provide you with even heat throughout all of the rooms, but many homeowners find cold spots in certain areas. Fortunately, there are ways to fix this problem. You simply need to take a closer look at your heating system and determine if any of the following solutions can help you feel toasty warm no matter where you are within your house.

Clean Your Filters

Every furnace includes filters that need to be changed periodically. The filter’s job is to trap dirt and dust as the air passes through the system. Once these filters are clogged, they won’t function properly. If the air can’t flow through them freely, you can experience cold spots.

Change Your Heating System’s Size

If your heating system isn’t large enough to handle the size of your house, it won’t be able to keep all of the rooms evenly heated. We can help you find a heating system that is better suited to your home’s square footage.

Upgrade Your System

An older heating system can lose efficiency. When this happens, you will notice that certain areas in your home won’t be warm enough to be comfortable. If your heating system is 10 years old or more, it may be more cost-effective to replace the unit.

Check the Air Ducts

Leaks in the air ducts mean you are losing heat. By the time the air reaches those furthest away rooms, you could have lost 30% of your heat along the way. We can inspect your vents and make any necessary repairs.

Install a Zoning System

Zoning systems allow you to set different rooms at different temperatures. You will have more control over your heat because the house is divided into zones. Each zone has its own thermostat.
