Q: When I was a child, I remember sitting in front of the heat register in winter and feeling intense hot air wash over me. What a feeling! Today, the air that comes out of my present home's registers is only lukewarm. Can we turn something up inside the furnace to make the air come out hotter? A: We can definitely make your heat hotter, but the result may not be as pleasing as you remember. Do you recall going to your bedroom on a cold winter night and shivering from the chilliness of the room? That's what happened in the old days, when systems focused on producing heat rather than circulating air. When warm air filled the "parlor" of an old home (where the thermostat was usually located) the powerful heat caused the thermostat to turn the heat off quickly. Heat never had the chance to fully reach the rooms at the far ends of the house. That's why the bedrooms were always chillier. Today's systems concentrate on circulating air better, which means the kitchen and bedrooms receive more heat before the thermostat kicks off.
An Air Comfort Systems technician can adjust the heat output of your furnace somewhat, to give you a bit of that old-time feeling. Just make sure you have some good old fashioned warm quilts ready for use at the other end of the house.
