Why is My Furnace Blowing Cold Air?

Why is My Furnace Blowing Cold Air?

With winter almost upon us, it’s imperative for your heating appliances to be operable. Otherwise, you’re liable to endure an unbearably chilly holiday season. Furnaces, specifically, can sometimes blow cold air, which is an unpleasant surprise for the owner. If your furnace is malfunctioning, it’s best to contact A-Plus Quality, HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area. For insight on why your furnace is blowing cold air, below are some of the most common causes.

Faulty Thermostat
In most cases, the thermostat is the culprit. Whether it was improperly installed, the batteries are low, or it’s not compatible with your heating system, it’s crucial for an HVAC expert to diagnose the problem. With their professional guidance, they can pinpoint the issue and ensure that it’s resolved promptly.

Old Air Filter
If you haven’t changed the air filter in some time, it could be causing your furnace to overheat. When air filters get too dirty, they can compromise the airflow. As a result, it prevents the furnace from blowing hot air. After changing the filter, restart the furnace, and it should be as good as new.

Leaking Ducts
If there are holes in the ductwork, hot air could be escaping from them. Without the necessary expertise, inspecting this problem can prove challenging. It’s for this reason why hiring HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area is a must when addressing this complication. If the HVAC technician detects any leaks, they’ll know how to remedy the issue.

Valve Problems
Over time, your furnace collects dust, dirt, and debris. When these impurities aren’t removed, they can bog down the system. More often than not, this leads to valve complications. With a thorough cleaning, your furnace will be in tip-top shape.

Age
In some instances, old age is the problem. Though furnaces can last for about 15-20 years, they start to deteriorate after that. If you’ve had your furnace for several decades, consider investing in a new one.

If your furnace is in need of a repair or replacement, our specialists at A-Plus Quality, HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area, will be glad to help you. Contact us today!

  • I call on A-Plus quality twice a year for furnace and AC servicing for the season and whenever I have issues. I can text or call them and they respond immediately. This morning I called the owner and within a couple of hours someone was at my door to fix an AC condensation issue. They are always friendly and very reliable. We have been using them for almost 20 years. Thank you A-Plus Quality!!

FAQ

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

  • Most common Boiler Issues

    - Boiler fails to ignite
    - Low pressure
    - Strange Noises
    - Boiler is not responding to the thermostat
    - Cold Radiators
    - Boiler leaking or dripping
    - Boiler cycling very fast
    - Available Hot water but No Heat

  • How do I know what size unit I need?
    If you have any problems with your system, you should contact the contractor who installed the units. All our systems are covered by a 5 year parts, 7 year compressor limited warranty
     
  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.  

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.
