Why Your Furnace Could be Blowing Cold Air

October 21, 2016

You listen to your heating system kick on and you’re anticipating a comfy blast of warm air, but instead all you feel is cool air blowing. That’s not preferable in the freezing weather!

There are a handful of reasons why your heating equipment could be blowing cold air. Winnipeg Supply Service Experts is here with some of them to help you find the culprit.

 

  • Thermostat

 

It could seem silly, but the thermostat is where you should start. 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 furnace will blow continually, even when it isn’t really heating the air being released, thus blasting cold air. Turning it to “auto” will make sure the heating equipment only blows when it’s truly heating the air to keep your home warm and comfortable.

 

  • Air Filter

 

Most air filters need to be changed monthly to keep them from growing dirty and clogged. If they aren’t changed often enough, the clogged air filter may impede airflow into your furnace. If this occurs, it can overheat your equipment, causing the furnace to stop heating as a safety measure.

 

  • Duct Work

 

If your duct work contains leaks, connection troubles, or was not designed correctly, it could permit warm air from the heating system to seep out. This would not only cause your heating equipment to give off 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 at the desired temperature.

 

There are many other reasons that your heating equipment could give off cold air.
