Is it Spring yet? Unfortunately… the answer is a solid no. Right about now, maybe you’re noticing that your furnace is running but the air that’s blowing out of your vents is cold. Well, if that’s the case, there are a couple of things you can do to troubleshoot the problem before calling the experts in Nashville at South Nashville Heating and Cooling.
First, check the thermostat. Maybe you walked by a vent and noticed the air seemed cool, however your house is staying warm. If it is, the problem might be a simple thermostat setting. Check your thermostat and make sure that it is set to “auto” rather than “on.” When set to “on”, the fan on your furnace will blow continually, even when the furnace isn’t actually heating the air.
If you feel the air blowing out of the vents while the furnace is off, the air will seem cool since it’ll be about room temperature.
Then, check the air filter. A dirty air filter restricts airflow into your furnace. Restricted airflow can overheat your furnace, causing a safety control to shut off the burners. This safety mechanism protects your furnace from overheating causing damage to your system!
Still feeling cold air coming out of the vents after trying the above? Your best bet is to have the most trusted heating repair company in Middle Tennessee – South Nashville Heating and Cooling – to come to your home and diagnose the problem.
