The San Francisco Bay Area enjoys mild winters compared to places like Boston or Chicago. However, the first weeks of this month brought frigid air and whipping winds. Temperatures plummeted to the 30s for cities along the bay like Redwood City, San Carlos, and Burlingame.
Are you and your kids not sleeping well because everyone is cold? Do they wake up restless in the middle of the night?
Here’s what to do to make sure your house is comfortable so everyone can sleep through the night:
Check for leaky ducts
When rooms don’t stay warm, there may be leaks in your furnace ducts. This causes your furnace to work harder and take longer to get to the desired temperature.
If some rooms stay warm but other rooms feel cold, then you may have a furnace air flow problem. We can correct this by adjusting the furnace air that blows into each room. We do this through automatic zoning so you are warm and cozy wherever you are in your home.
Check the time on your thermostat
Did you adjust the thermostat for daylight savings time? Set your furnace thermostat to “On” instead of “Auto.”
Change your furnace filter
Dust and dirt prevent free air flow through the heating system. This could make the furnace’s heat exchange overheat and turn itself off.
Get an inspection for your HVAC system
Your HVAC system is like your car and needs regular checkups and maintenance. Keeping your heating system running smoothly can lengthen the life of the furnace. This means you save money while giving you and your family cleaner air to breathe and more comfortable sleep.
