You notice your furnace start up and you’re anticipating a comfortable blast of warm air, but instead all you feel is cool air blowing. That’s not preferable in freezing temperatures!
There are a handful of reasons why your heating equipment could be giving off cold air. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a couple of them to help you locate the problem.
It may feel silly, but the thermostat is the first thing you want to look at. It’s the first place any heating system technician will check, too. Make sure the system is set to “auto and not “on.” If the thermostat is set to “on” then your furnace will blow continuously, even when it is not actually heating the air being produced, thus blasting cold air. Turning it to “auto” will make sure the heating system only blows when it’s truly heating the air to keep your home warm and cozy.
Typically air filters need to be changed monthly to avoid them from becoming dirty and clogged. If your filters aren’t swapped out often enough, the soiled air filter may impede airflow into your heating system. If this takes place, it can overheat your furnace, causing the system to stop heating as a safeguard.
If your duct work includes leaks, connection issues, or was designed incorrectly, it could permit warm air from the heating system to escape out. This would not only cause your furnace to give off cold air, it could significantly run up your energy bills since your heating system is heating non-living space, and will have to work more to keep your home comfortable.
