The answer may surprise you, but if the heating in your Dayton home seems ineffective it may be about more than your HVAC system. If you have a newer heating system or have already had your system professionally inspected, serviced and repaired then it may be time to look for other answers. When your heat source is working properly, your home is comfortable and your bills are stable.

If you have noticed that it is next to impossible to keep the interior of your home warm and your bills seem to be skyrocketing, then you need to be looking for other possible problems. The important thing is to try to diagnose the problem quickly. This will reduce your monthly utility bills and ensure that you can keep your system running for years to come, as opposed to putting too much strain on it and causing the need for premature replacement.

What You Should Know

One of the easiest things you can do is simply take a walk around your home in an attempt to spot areas that could be contributing to the problem. Doors and windows are the most common trouble spots so make sure to pause at each one. It could mean you need re-caulking or even replacement windows but that can be determined by a professional. For now, make it a point to do what you can, including using draft blocking techniques to keep the cold air out and the warm air in.

The roof is another area of concern. After a good snowfall, take a look at your exterior roof before the sun has had a chance to melt snow away and look for large patches of melted snow. If you see any this means interior heat has melted snow away which means you have an issues such an insufficient insulation. The key is making sure you address the problem.
