You listen to your heating system kick on and you’re ready for a cozy blast of warm air, but instead all you have is cool air blowing. That’s not preferable in the freezing weather!
There are a couple 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 find the problem.
It could sound silly, but the thermostat is the first place you should check. 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 continually, even when it isn’t heating the air being produced, thus blasting cold air. Flipping it to “auto” will make sure the furnace only blows when it’s truly heating the air to keep your home warm and comfy.
Typically air filters need to be changed once a month to keep them from becoming dirty and clogged. If your filters aren’t replaced often enough, the clogged air filter may obstruct airflow into your furnace. If this happens, it can overheat your system, causing the system to stop heating as a safety measure.
If your duct work includes leaks, connection issues, or was not designed properly, it could allow warm air from the heating system to escape out. This would not only cause your heating equipment to produce cold air, it could significantly run up your heating bills since your furnace is heating non-living space, and will have to work harder to keep your home at the desired temperature.
