You spend more time indoors in the colder months. During this time of the year, you want to prioritize maintaining good indoor air quality and a comfortable environment for your family. It could be hard to achieve these goals if your HVAC system is malfunctioning.
It’s common for homeowners to suddenly find their heaters are blowing cold air. Keep reading to find out the possible causes of this issue.
Your Thermostat Isn’t Set Correctly
If it’s been challenging to keep your living space at consistent temperatures, your thermostat could be the culprit. You could have forgotten to change your thermostat’s setting, meaning it is still in cooling mode. It must be set to “auto” instead of “on” so that the fan and heater run simultaneously.
Your Heater Is Still Warming Up
When you turn on your heater for the first time, it might produce cool air because it is still warming up. After a few minutes, you should start feeling warm and cozy. If your furnace continues to blow cold air, you might need to have it checked by professionals. At Amber Air Conditioning Inc., we are here to assist with your HVAC-related concerns.
You Have Dirty Air Filters
The easiest way to maintain the efficiency of your HVAC system is regular air filter replacement. Over time, dirt, dust, and other contaminants can accumulate in the filters, resulting in poor airflow. Clogged filters prevent your equipment from circulating warm air in your living space. They can even cause your furnace to overheat and shut down.
The Gas Supply Has Problems
Check the pilot light of your equipment. If it doesn’t turn on, there could be problems with the gas supply. Fortunately, most modern furnaces automatically shut down when there are gas supply issues. It could be that there isn’t enough gas in the tank, or the gas can’t get to your furnace. It’s best to leave all gas supply-related issues to professionals.
