Reasons Why Your Heater May Be Blowing Cold Air

When winter hits full force, there’s no denying that your heating system will become the most vital appliance you have within your home. And so long as it is well taken care of, you likely expect it to effectively keep you warm when you turn it on.

However, if your furnace comes on and the air coming from the vents is only lukewarm, or cool, then it cannot possibly be efficiently heating your home, and it’s time to call in the professionals. Our team is standing by and ready to safely discover what’s wrong with your furnace to provide you with the best solutions. In the meantime, here are a few reasons this may be occurring.

Breached Ductwork

The air ducts that channel warm air from your furnace to the vents must maintain a tight seal in order to avoid a drop in air pressure. Even the smallest leak in your ductwork can jeopardize air pressure and lead to uneven heating throughout your home. Have our professionals take a look and determine if you need professional duct sealing.

Thermostat Malfunction

If your thermostat isn’t working correctly, then it may be either misreading indoor temperatures or it isn’t properly regulating the temperature in the furnace. Be sure first, however, to check and see that the thermostat is set to the right temperature.

Broken Heating Elements

If your furnace is an electric model, then the problem might be due to one of the heating elements in the cabinet burning out. Electric furnace systems need more than one heating element in order to function, and if one stops working then the furnace will lose all of its heating power.

Be sure if you do notice your furnace isn’t heating as it should, that you give our team a call right away. Delaying repairs may only cause the issue to worsen, and then you’ll either be stuck with a broken-down system in the middle of winter, or you’ll be paying for emergency repairs later on down the line.
