You notice your furnace start up and you’re expecting a comfy blast of warm air, but instead all you feel is cool air blowing. That’s not what you want when it’s cold outside!
There are a couple reasons why your heating system could be putting off cold air. Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a few of them to help you detect the culprit.
It may feel silly, but the thermostat is the first place you should check. It’s the starting point for any heating technician, too. Make sure the system is set to “auto and not “on.” If the thermostat is set to “on” then your heating system will blow constantly, even when it isn’t really heating the air being released, thus blowing cold air. Flipping 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.
The majority of air filters need to be changed every month to prevent them from growing dirty and clogged. If your filters aren’t replaced often enough, the clogged air filter may obstruct airflow into your heating system. If this occurs, it can overheat your equipment, causing the system to stop heating as a safety measure.
If your duct work includes leaks, connection troubles, or was not designed properly, it could permit warm air from the heating system to seep out. This would not only cause your heating system to blow cold air, it could seriously run up your heating bills since your heating system is heating non-living space, and will have to work harder to keep your home comfortable.
