As winter weather continues to roll in, your heating system it's totally becoming your best friend again. While it would be great if the system worked perfectly and nothing malfunctioned, if you’ve skipped regular tune-ups and maintenance, that could be far from the case.
A common issue homeowners find is that their furnace is blowing cold air rather than the warm air they so desire. This can be due to a few different factors, all of which should be repaired as soon as possible to get your home nice and toasty again.
Reasons a Furnace May Blow Cold Air
Your Fuel Source
If the fuel source that your furnace runs on, mainly gas or oil, is compromised, your furnace may still function, but not treat the air as it should. This can result in your unit blowing cold air until you resolve the issue.
Sometimes, the pilot light in your furnace can go out, leaving you with burner issues and a lack of warm air. If it does, you may need to clean the sensors or condensate drain line. However, if you notice that the issues are not resolved after cleaning those parts, you should have a professional take a look at the system.
In some cases, your furnace isn’t the problem at all. Even if your unit is heating air as it should, if you have problems with your ductwork, that warm air won’t make it to its required destination. This can happen in your ductwork has any cracks or holes that allow air to escape before it reaches the intended room, leaving your home feeling rather chilly.
