If your furnace is blowing cold air, you may wonder what is wrong with it. There are several possible reasons why this might happen, and in this blog post, Moe Plumbing Services will discuss some of the most common ones. We will also provide some tips on how to fix the problem yourself and when it is time to call in a professional.
Pilot Light Issue
One of the most common reasons why your furnace may be blowing cold air is because the pilot light has gone out. If this is the case, you will need to relight it according to the instructions in your owner’s manual. If you are not sure how to do this, or if you cannot get the pilot light to stay lit, then you should call Moe Plumbing Services at (818) 396-8002 for assistance.
Another possible reason why your furnace is blowing cold air is that there is a problem with the blower motor. This component is responsible for circulating air through the furnace and into your home. If it is not working properly, then the air will not be heated as it should be and will instead come out cold. You can usually tell if there is a problem with the blower motor by listening for a humming noise coming from the furnace. If you hear this, then it is likely that the motor needs to be replaced.
Clogged Air Filter
A clogged air filter is another reason why your furnace might be blowing cold air. If you can’t remember the last time you changed your furnace’s air filter, it’s most likely time for a replacement. Most furnaces require a filter change every three months, while others might need a replacement more often.
