I had a real complication the other evening.
I had been having a lot of heat flashes lately, and I thought Wintertide was going to be a cakewalk.
I was aggravated when I went for three weeks without a single heat flash, and it was the coldest area of winter. I couldn’t get warm, no matter what I did. I knew the furnace was running, because I could hear it turning on and off. That’s when I realized the furnace was turning on and off more often than it should be. There was truly little heat coming from the air vents. I knew I had a problem. I called the HVAC business and told them what was going on. They sent a HVAC contractor to the house. He said the furnace was working fine, even though he was worried there was a blockage in the air vents or in the ductwork. He had to get a professional ductwork cleaner to the house. Luckily, their business had a maintenance with the cleaning unit installed. He was able to get a maintenance tech who was able to run the machinery to come to the home that afternoon. The a single air vent was almost totally blocked with debris, however it was the air filter that was my main problem. The air filter was totally jammed with dirt and debris.. There was no airflow getting through the air filter and it was affecting my furnace. He said I had to remember to change the air filter, or next time I may not be so lucky. He said it could have destroyed my furnace.
