My Furnace Is Blowing Cold Air. Why?

When it comes to cold air blowing from your furnace, unfortunately, various issues could be occurring within your equipment. As soon as you acknowledge your furnace is distributing cold air, you should check your thermostat to make sure the setting on the fan is set to AUTO. Your furnace will blow cold air whether it is switched “on” or “off” if it is set to the wrong fan setting. If the fan is at the correct setting, the next thing you should do is check your furnace to see if it has overheated or if the pilot light has gone out on your heating equipment.

Why Is Water Leaking From My Heating Equipment?

It can be stressful dealing with furnace damages, especially water leaks. If your furnace is leaking water, you may be experiencing a condensation leak. Condensation is produced through the cooling exhaust in your furnace and channeled through a floor drain. A blockage or damaged condensate line could be the cause of the condensation leak on your furnace. 

How Can I Avoid Overworking My Furnace?

A great way to avoid overworking your furnace is to adjust the thermostat as needed. For example, when you’re away from your home for long periods of time, lower the thermostat a couple of degrees. By doing this, you can avoid future damages or overheating your furnace.
