If you own a home in Ham Lake, MN you understand how vital proper heating is to the comfort of your home and your family. So when you can’t feel any heat, it’s only natural that you want to solve this situation quickly. We encourage you to give us a call for heating repair at the first sign of trouble so that small problems don’t become bigger ones. However the factors listed below could be affecting what you feel coming from your vents.

Your Body Temperature Affects the Temperature You’re Feeling

A common complaint shared by many homeowners who utilize heat pumps is that they feel “cold air” blowing out of their vents instead of warm air. The truth is, even if the temperature of the air coming out is set at 80 degrees, it may still feel cooler to you. This could be simply because the vent air’s temperature is below your body temperature. Check this by looking at your thermostat and observing the inside temperature. If it’s rising, and the heat pump shuts off once it reaches your desired temperature, then the heat pump is doing its job. Keep in mind that another reason your heat pump vent may blow out cold air is because it may need to defrost once turned on.

Signs You May Need a Repair

Of course, heating systems are not flawless and do break down on occasion. This is especially true if you have not invested in routine heating maintenance. Here are a few things to look for that may signal you need a repair.
  • Your thermostat is set to “heat” and has been running for a while but still is not blowing warm air.
  • Your thermostat is set a few degrees higher than the indoor temperature but your heater is not cycling on.
  • Your air filters have been recently replaced.
If you are still having problems with your heat after checking all of this, it’s probably time to call for a repair. Contact the experts at Air Mechanical, Inc. today for heating repair and maintenance services in Ham Lake, MN.
