Is Your Furnace Blowing Cool Air?

 

furnace-repairLiving in Arizona means long, hot summers and very mild winters. If you think this means your AC is the only home comfort system worth considering, though, think again. We may not suffer through subzero temperatures and big snow dumps the way that they do in the Northeast or the Midwest, but wintertime temperatures around here can and do get too cold for comfort. That is why you really cannot afford to overlook any problems with your home heating system.

These problems manifest themselves in a variety of ways. Some issues, like the development of a strange sound, may be easy to miss. A furnace that is blowing cool air is a much more obvious sign of trouble, though. If your furnace is failing to deliver sufficiently heated air throughout your home, then you need to contact us in order to schedule professional furnace repairs in Tucson, AZ with technicians that you can trust. When we do the job, the job is done right.

Why Might This Happen?

Your furnace may be blowing cold air, or maybe it is just blowing air that isn’t quite as warm as it should be. In either event, you need to get the system back on track if you want to live in the comfort we believe you deserve. Here are a few potential causes of this problem.

  • Leaky ductwork. Furnaces are forced-air heating systems, and that means that your furnace uses air ducts in order to distribute heated air throughout your home. It is possible that these ducts will pass through unconditioned areas of the house, and if leaks develop in those areas, the ducts may lose some of the heat that they contain. Heat naturally seeks balance, so it will escape the ducts into the cooler surroundings that they pass through.
  • Thermostat issues. It is possible that the issue stems from the thermostat you use in order to regulate the operation of your furnace. You may have the thermostat set to “on” rather than “auto,” which keeps the fan running even when heat is not being generated. You may also have a thermostat that is registering temperatures incorrectly. Simply changing the settings or having a technician replace a faulty thermostat can solve the problem.
  • Combustion issues. Most furnaces these days will simply shut down if there is a combustion issue, as this can pose a serious safety risk. However, if your system does run while failing to generate heat, either due to such combustion issues or, in electric furnaces, problems with the heating element, then you can expect cool air to be the final product.

Once we have, we can go about resolving the problem for you completely. Contact us at the first sign of trouble with your furnace.
