Why is my furnace blowing cold air?

Why is my furnace blowing cold air?

  If you are Googling, “why is my furnace blowing cold air?” you probably aren’t having the greatest of mornings. We’ve all been there. It’s frustrating when furnaces break down, especially when they are needed most.

If you are experiencing a frustrating morning, and you woke up to a cold house, call Schomburg Heating and Cooling at 816-238-0032. We offer furnace service in St. Joe, Camden Point, Dearborn, Platte City, Smithville, Weston, and the surrounding areas. We will be happy to diagnose the problem of why your furnace is blowing cold air. We will even fix the problem as well.

What could be wrong? It could be several different issues.

Is the fan set to on?

If your furnace seems to blow hot air sometimes and cold air other times, your system’s fan may be set to “on.” This means your fan is continually blowing, but sometimes the air is not heated.

Is your air filter dirty?

How long has it been since you have changed your furnace filter? If it’s been a while, this may be the cause of your furnace blowing cool air. If your furnace was overheating because of a lack of airflow, the high limit switch might have been tripped causing your furnace not to function. You may need to have a Schomburg service technician come to reset your furnace.

Is your pilot light not lit?  

If you have an older furnace with a standing pilot light, the cool air blowing from your vents may mean that the pilot light isn’t lit. Look for the instructions on how to light your pilot light for your particular furnace or give Schomburg a call. Always seek help from a technician if your pilot light won’t stay lit.

If you have been through this checklist, and you are still experiencing cool air from your vents, there may be some other issue with your system. Send Schomburg a message, and our techs will arrive at your house with diagnostic tools. We will find out why the furnace isn’t performing like it should and give you a quote on how much it will cost to fix or replace it.
