Three Ways to Know If Your Heating Isn't Working Efficiently

If your heating and air conditioning system isn’t working properly, there are several signs you can probably notice.

When it’s cold outside, you want to use your heating and air conditioning system as much as possible to stay warm. On particularly cold days, if your heater isn’t working as efficiently as it could, there’s a good chance you’ll notice. Below are a few ways you can tell if your HVAC heating system isn’t working as it should:

It Feels Colder Inside

This is going to be the most obvious sign that your heating isn't working properly. When you set your thermostat to your normal setting, you will expect your home or office to feel a certain way. When you don't, that's a good sign something is wrong. This doesn't always mean your heater needs repairing, as there could be an issue with the thermostat, your building’s insulation or the design and layout of your HVAC system.

The Heater Runs for Longer Periods of Time

If a heater isn’t as efficient as normal, it will often run for longer periods of time. This is because it doesn’t heat the inside of a building as quickly and therefore it runs longer. In some cases, the heater might never turn off.

There can be a variety of reasons to explain why this is the case. Causes can range from broken furnaces to thermostats that need calibration.

Higher Energy Bill

Even if it feels like the heater is working as it should, one sure sign that the efficiency isn't where it should be is if the energy bill is too high. During a particularly cold spell, the heating bill may be higher, and that is normal. But when it's a relatively mild month, but the heating bills look like you just went through a cold snap, there's a good chance something is not working as it should.
