Why Is Cold Air Coming From My Furnace in Shorter, AL?

Furnaces 101

It’s not a good sign if the gas or electric furnace in your Shorter, AL, home is blowing cool air. Numerous things can cause the heating system to malfunction and stop producing warm air. Keep reading to learn some of the most common reasons for this furnace problem.

Malfunctioning Pilot Light

A gas furnace has a pilot light that ignites the burners and produces heat. If the heating system is blowing cool air, the pilot light might have a problem igniting or staying lit. This is more likely to occur in older gas furnaces.

Clogged Air Filters

An air filter covered in soot, dust or grime can hurt the efficiency of your furnace. Long heating cycles and overheating issues could develop. Cool air blowing from the furnace is a sign of possible overheating.

Issues with Gas Supply

A problem with the gas supply line can cause the heating system to blow cool air. If the furnace isn’t getting enough gas, it can’t properly heat the home.

Gas issues are dangerous and can potentially cause a carbon monoxide leak in your home. Schedule regular maintenance so that a licensed service technician can make sure there’s no issue with the gas supply lines.

Blocked Condensate Lines

Many new high-efficiency furnaces have a condensate line that helps remove fluid that accumulates inside the heating system. When the condensate line has a blockage, it can cause the burners to deactivate and the heating system to blow cool air.

Thermostat Issues

Check your thermostat to make sure that other family members haven’t lowered the temperature or changed other settings. The thermostat could also be running out of battery power.
