You hear your HVAC system turn on and you’re ready for a comfortable blast of warm air, but instead all you feel is cool air blowing. That’s no good in freezing temperatures!
There are a few reasons why your heating equipment could be giving off cold air. Climate Control Service Experts is here with a couple of them to help you locate the issue.
It could sound silly, but the thermostat is where you should start. It’s the first place any heating system technician will check, too. Confirm the system is set to “auto as opposed to “on.” If the thermostat is set to “on” then your HVAC system will blow continually, even when it isn’t heating the air coming out, thus blowing cold air. Changing it to “auto” will make sure the heating equipment only blows when it’s actually heating the air to keep your home warm and comfy.
Most air filters need to be changed every month to avoid them from growing dirty and clogged. If they aren’t swapped out often enough, the dirty air filter may impede airflow into your heating equipment. If this takes place, it can overheat your system, causing the equipment to stop heating as a safety precaution.
If your duct work contains leaks, connection problems, or was not designed properly, it could permit warm air from the heating equipment to escape out. This would not only cause your heating system to produce cold air, it could actually run up your heating bills since your furnace is heating non-living space, and will have to work harder to keep your home comfortable.
