When It Is Too Hot In Your House In Winter: Possible Causes, And How To Fix Them

Too hot in your house in winter? Is that even possible? Well, considering the fact that you can turn your thermostat up to ninety degrees, yes, it is possible. The point is, most people probably would not make their homes quite so hot, with the exception of some elderly people who are cold all the time. So, if your house is suddenly blistering hot, and the thermostat still says it is sixty-nine degrees, you have a problem.

Conversely, if you keep trying to set the thermostat low, and the furnace keeps cranking the temp in your home to an uncomfortable eighty degrees or more, that is also a problem. Here is what could be causing your home to "overheat" in winter.

​The Thermostat Is Constantly Signaling the Furnace to Turn On

​It is kind of an eerie thought; a thermostat that keeps signaling your furnace to turn on and make things hotter. However, the explanation is much less supernatural. Faulty thermostats have been known to read one temperature, but cause the homes to become much more uncomfortable than they are. Repairing or replacing these thermostats altogether quickly resolves the issue and puts your home back at a comfortable temperature.

​Somebody Has Left a Window or Door Open

​You would not believe how often HVAC technicians check on furnaces that seem to be constantly on only to find that there is a basement window wide open near the furnace. Sometimes it is a door that is open and causing the furnace to kick on! Whichever it happens to be in your case, shutting the window and sealing it, or shutting the door and keeping it shut, will definitely stop the furnace and allow your home to cool off to its set temperature again.

The Furnace Thinks It Has to Run

​This is a problem that is usually and only associated with electric furnaces. Something electrical is misfiring internally, and the furnace keeps heating. Even though you may have turned the thermostat off, the furnace keeps going. Some of these modern furnaces have high-tech control panels that become faulty and cause this issue, too. Your HVAC technician can crack open your furnace and see what is going on with the electrical circuitry. Then he/she can fix it, or replace the components that at causing the problems. After the repairs/replacements have been made, it will only take a couple of hours in the middle of winter for your home to return to a normal indoor temperature.
