Reasons Your Furnace Is Distributing Cold Air
There may be several reasons your furnace is distributing cold air instead of warm. Below are some solutions you may be able to use to fix the problem before calling our technicians. Of course, for the things, you can’t repair or are not comfortable repairing—call us.
Inspect the Thermostat
Wouldn’t it be nice if the solution to your problem was a simple flick of a switch? Well, in this case, it might be. Is your thermostat set to AUTO or ON? If it’s set to ON, the fan will continue running regardless of whether the heater is on or off. If the heater is off and the fan is running, you’ll likely feel cool air coming from vents. Switch your setting to AUTO so that your furnace only blows warm air.
Replace the Air Filter
Cold air coming from your furnace can be a sign that it overheated. The result of overheating is typically due to restricted airflow. When your furnace doesn’t get the proper airflow, it’ll need to work harder to reach your desired temperature. You can fix these issues by replacing the air filter. A clean filter will help your furnace work efficiently.
Pilot Light Or Ignition Issue
A dirty pilot light or an ignition issue may be the reason your furnace can’t produce warm air. Check your pilot light to see if it’s ignited. If not, you have a few options. You can attempt to re-ignite the pilot light using the instructions provided in the user manual or on the furnace. If you feel uncomfortable trying this call our HVAC professionals instead. Our team offers furnace repair services in Lockport, IL and has the experience necessary to fix the issues in your system.
Contaminated Flame Sensor
Have you noticed your furnace keeps cycling on and off? The source of this furnace repair issue may be a dirty flame sensor. With a dirty flame sensor, your gas burner will struggle to stay lit. Let a technician at Stephens Plumbing take care of this issue for you. Contact our team in Lockport today.
Low Supply Of Natural Gas
Without a proper supply of natural gas, your furnace can’t warm your home or office. If your furnace is not getting enough gas, the issue may be a severed gas line. This issue needs the attention of a professional. Contact your local HVAC technician right away.
Blockage in the Condensate Drain Lines
Some newer model furnaces have a condensate drain line that removes the water created during the heating process. When these drain lines are clogged, they activate a safety switch that stops the burners from lighting. Our technicians offer exceptional furnace repair services in Lockport, IL and have the tools required to eliminate the blockage in your condensate drain pipes. Give our team a call by phone at (630) 968-0783 or book an appointment online to receive help with a damaged furnace.
Air Duct Issues
Cold air coming from your furnace may not be a problem with your furnace at all. If your home or office’s ductwork has holes or leaks, cold air can easily find its way in. As your furnace tries to distribute warm air, cold air may be getting mixed in. You may be able to find products that patch leaks, or you can contact our HVAC technicians.
