If you experience a furnace blowing cold air, do not panic. More often than not, the culprit of trouble is something minor that can be easily repaired, often without help from a furnace repair. Let’s take a look at a few common causes of furnaces blowing out cold air.
Pilot Light Problems
First and foremost, check the pilot light. It’s possible that a pilot light has gone out or is faulty in other ways. Pilot light problems can usually be fixed in a matter of minutes.
Furnace filters allow the circulation of heat into your home. When filters clog with dirt and particles, it blocks the airflow. The result can be a furnace that suddenly starts to blow out cool or cold air. Make sure a dirty filter is not the cause of your furnace woes by cleaning or changing them out regularly, generally once every one to three months. Always choose HEPA-filters to help keep clean air flowing in your home.
Cracks and holes in the ductwork may also result in cold air blowing through your home. Sealing up the cracks and holes in the ductwork is a quick and easy solution to this problem.
Clogged Condensation Lines
Clogged condensation lines may also result in furnaces blowing out cool or cold air. Condensation lines are designed to air drain lines in the removal of moisture. When there is a clog, the condensation line can deactivate burners, resulting in cold air blowing through your home.
