Furnace Blowing Cold Air
Furnaces are a vital element of every home, particularly in colder temperatures. They heat air and then circulate it through the house, ensuring everyone remains warm. Dealing with a sudden breakdown of your system is never fun, so it is better to be prepared for the winter season to avoid this.

Reasons a Furnace Blows Cold Air
If you’re having trouble maintaining your home’s pleasant temperature or are finding cold air coming out of your furnace every time you turn on the heating – read below for possible reasons.
Check Your Thermostat's Settings
Ensure that you have set the thermostat to the proper setting. If it’s turned ON, the furnace will continue running if it isn’t making the heat. The air flowing through the vents appears cool, as it’s room temperature.
Change the temperature of your furnace to AUTO, and your fan can be running only when the furnace heats it, and you won’t be getting cold or even room temperature air.
Change the Air Filter
Check the Pilot Light
The furnace could produce cold temperatures as the pilot light is out. This is a simple fix; relight your pilot. After you have relighted it several times and nothing improves, contact professionals to examine the issue. This indicates an even bigger issue.

Accumulated Water in the Air Handler
HVAC systems typically produce large amounts of humidity and condensation. An outlet must be connected to the furnace to eliminate the excess humidity. If there’s a blockage, it’s possible that the switch to kill overflow will stop the system to prevent water damage, and the furnace will be forced to blast cold air.
If you notice that water is accumulating close to the base, condensate drain lines must be cleaned. After you’ve cleaned them and verified that the drainage is in order, Reset your furnace by switching on and off. Back on, and you’ll be able to get hot air in no time.
Examine Your Ductwork
The more ductwork you have, the more likely it will become damaged or leaky. Experts recommend that leaks cost hundreds of dollars yearly to your monthly energy costs. It is important to examine the ductwork on your own; however, it’s possible that you will not be able to see the rips or tears that cause your leak.
