Why Is My Heater Blowing Cold Air?

If your heater is blowing cold air, it might have several issues that need to be investigated by a professional technician.

Heater Blowing Cold Air

In this post, Stone Heating and Air discuss the common reasons why heaters blow cold air and how to resolve the problem.

Inaccurate Thermostat

Electrical issues and normal wear and tear are two primary causes of thermostat inaccuracy. To solve this, technicians will evaluate your device’s accuracy and energy efficiency. They will check the thermostat’s wirings and compare its temperature settings to the indoor temperature.

Dirty Air Filters

Your furnace accumulates dust over time, clogging your ducts and forcing the unit to work harder and consume more energy to heat your home. Regularly replace your air filter and have the ducts cleaned to maintain your unit’s energy efficiency and optimal performance.

Overheated Furnace

Dirt buildup and mechanical failure are two common causes of poor furnace performance. Remove dirt buildup by replacing existing filters. Then, have repair technicians troubleshoot and solve the unit’s mechanical failure. They may also recommend a system replacement for old or damaged equipment.

Clogged Condensate Drains

Condensation causes clogs in heater pipes when working overtime during winter. A reliable expert can remove condensate and drain line blockages to clear drains and improve furnace performance.

Pilot Light Outage

Pilot light outages disable the furnace’s heating capacity. Qualified technicians can repair and restore pilot lights and address any possible hazard throughout the process.

Air Duct Leakage

Air duct leaks reduce the volume of heated air that passes through the system. Technicians will inspect and conduct repairs or replacements to improve the system’s airflow and heating capacity.
