My Furnace is Blowing Cold Air

My Furnace is Blowing Cold Air

Oh man, we've all been there before. Middle of winter when you are counting on your furnace to work at its best and then COLD AIR. Have no fear, we have a few tips that should help you if your furnace is blowing cold air:

5. FAN SETTINGS

Fan setting is critical to ensuring that your furnace isn't using unnecessary energy. Make sure your thermostat is turned to "Auto", not "On." Auto will ensure that the blower will run only when the furnace is heating the air.

4. CHECK THE AIR FILTER

This may seem obvious, but make sure to check the air filter to make sure that the heated air has a clear path to your home. If you need a filter changed or want the peace of mind to not have to worry about changing them, consider a Triple-O Preventative Maintenance Plan

3. CONSIDER A SMART THERMOSTAT

If you don't already, you may want to consider a smart thermostat. This will automatically send error messages directly to your device to prevent long term damage to your equipment. We recommend NEST thermostats

2. CHECK FOR CONDENSATE BLOCKAGE

Common causes for blockage are: Dust, Dir, Mold and Ice (especially here in upstate NY) While hopefully not the case, sometimes overflow may be caused by a broken condensate pump. If that is the case, you will need a professional to come out for a quick service call.

1. CALL TRIPLE-O
