You May Need Duct Testing to Help with Heating Problems

Monday, December 25th, 2017

inside-air-ducts“Why can’t my heating system keep up in the winter?”

We hear this question often. When something isn’t working with a home’s heater during a New York winter, it means miserable days until it’s fixed. There also isn’t a simple answer to the question, because many different troubles might lurk behind the furnace or heat pump that’s falling behind on the job. For example, a furnace that was poorly installed (a huge risk with amateur work) may be unable to output sufficient warmth. This is called an undersized heater, and the solution is to replace it.

The heater could also be suffering from a number of malfunctions, such as clogged-up burners, a congested air filter, or issues with the blower fan. Sometimes, the thermostat could be at fault. In most situations, a repair technician can restore the heater to proper operation.

However, we propose another solution. One that allows you to vent out the stale and stuffy air in your house and replace it with fresh air from outside, but without having to open up the house to cold drafts and driving up your energy bills. And that solution is an ERV.
