There is nothing quite like the chilling struggle that comes with a broken furnace. This is particularly true when your furnace breaks down in the winter. When the cold, frigid temperatures take a nosedive, having a properly working furnace becomes critical. However, have you started to notice cold air coming from your furnace? This could be a telltale sign that something is seriously wrong with your heating system. Getting a professional who has the knowledge and experience to find the problem and help solve it as well. However, knowing your furnace can help you identify where the problem could be located and start to assess the situation ahead of time.
Typically, air is heated in a furnace by fuel. As a result, when the fuel component of a furnace is compromised in some way, the air the blows out of it will likely still come through, but will no longer be warm, as it should. Some possible issues with the fuel tank can include things like an empty oil tank, a turned off electric furnace or flipped breakers. No matter what, you always want to seek the advice and expertise of a professional to help you diagnose the issue.
Typically a burner is needed to provide the essential flame that ignites the fuel. That’s how you get warm air circulating throughout your home. When something with the burners is not working correctly, you could find that cold air flows instead. One of the most straightforward fixes with a broken burner is that a pilot light has gone out. As a result, it is necessary to light it back up to ensure that your home has warm air instead of cold air.
When you have cold air instead of warm air coming out of your furnace, the fan isn’t the problem. However, it’s important to note that the fan is still an essential component of the furnace. It’s what filters the air and circulates it throughout your home. Even a broken air filter will cause problems with the type of air coming through the furnace.
Sometimes the issue isn’t with the furnace itself but with the heat delivery source (the ducts). Some of the more common causes of a duct issue are leaks or holes in the ductwork itself.
