There could be several reasons your furnace struggles to keep up with cold temperatures. Here are a few reasons why you experience winter HVAC issues and what you can do to fix them:
- If your HVAC system is undersized for your home or you’ve added onto your home, it may not generate enough heat to keep up with the demand, especially during extreme cold weather.

Dirty Air Filters:
- Dirty air filters restrict airflow, reducing the efficiency of your HVAC unit and making it harder to heat your home adequately.

- If your thermostat is malfunctioning or not set correctly, it may not signal the unit to produce enough heat.
- Leaky or poorly insulated ducts can result in heat loss, reducing the effectiveness of your heating system.
Blocked Vents or Registers:
- Ensure all vents and registers are open and unobstructed to allow proper airflow throughout your home.
- Issues with components such as the blower motor, igniter, or thermostat sensor can affect the system’s ability to heat your home effectively.
Lack of Maintenance:
- Regular maintenance is essential to keep your HVAC system running efficiently. It may not operate at full capacity if it hasn’t been serviced in a while.
