Heater Blowing Cold Air

Why is My Heater Blowing Cold Air?

It is important to have a reliable heating system during the winter. When the air is cold outside, you expect for your heater to blow out warm air inside. If it doesn't, you will need to get an HVAC professional to check out your system to see why it is not performing optimally. Your heating system can help keep you warm and safe throughout the cold months as long as it is doing what it should.

If you notice that your system is blowing out cold air, you could have a dirty filter or your fan might be off. There are many reasons why you could be dealing with an HVAC system that is blowing out cold air.

A Dirty Filter

A dirty filter can cause all sorts of issues. It is important for air to travel easily through your system so that it can get to the area where it will be warmed. If you have a dirty or clogged filter, air will not be able to easily move through your system. This can lead to cold air coming from your unit instead of warm air. By having your filters cleaned or changed, you can enjoy having warm air coming out of your HVAC system again.

Fan Is Off

Another reason why your HVAC system might be blowing off cold air instead of warm is because your fan is turned off. Check your thermostat to make certain that your fan is set to auto. If it is not, this could be the reason why your system is not blowing out hot air.

A Dirty Flame Sensor

It is important to have a professional check out your system if your flame sensor needs to be cleaned. If you do not open up your gas burner properly and clean your flame sensor the right way, you could damage your unit. If you notice that your home has warm air for a short period of time and then it gets cold, you could have a dirty sensor that needs to be taken care of.
