Why Your Furnace Could be Blowing Cold Air

You notice your furnace start up and you’re ready for a comfy blast of warm air, but instead all you have is cool air blowing. That’s not preferable in freezing temperatures!

There are a couple reasons why your heating equipment could be blowing cold air. Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning is here with a couple of them to help you detect the problem.

    • Thermostat

It could feel silly, but the thermostat is where you should start. It’s the starting place for any furnace technician, too. Verify the system is set to “auto as opposed to “on.” If the thermostat is set to “on” then your heating system will blow constantly, even when it is not actually heating the air being produced, thus putting off cold air. Flipping it to “auto” will make sure the furnace only blows when it’s actually heating the air to keep your home warm and comfy.

    • Air Filter

The majority of air filters need to be changed every month to keep them from getting dirty and clogged. If they aren’t replaced often enough, the soiled air filter may impede airflow into your heating system. If this takes place, it can overheat your system, causing the equipment to stop heating as a safety measure.

    • Duct Work

If your duct work contains leaks, connection troubles, or was not designed properly, it could allow warm air from the heating system to seep out. This would not only cause your furnace to produce cold air, it could seriously run up your energy bills since your furnace is heating non-living space, and will have to work harder to keep your home warm.

There are many other reasons that your furnace could blow cold air.
