Why Is My Heater Blowing Cold Air?

A lack of warm air is a frustratingly common heater repair that we see in Louisiana. There are a few reasons your heater may be blowing cold air, and we want to help you better understand those reasons. Your furnace blowing out cold air doesn’t always mean that it’s broken or that anything is wrong. It’s still important to be able to identify the reasons your furnace may be blowing cold air to fix it and prevent further damage.

Thermostat Setting

The transition between seasons and different weather conditions is a common way to confuse your thermostat. If you’re transitioning your thermostat from the warm season to the colder seasons, make sure that your thermostat is set to ‘HEAT’ as well as turning the temperature up to your desired setting. Just turning up the temperature setting without turning on the ‘HEAT’ function does not always result in the desired warm air blowing out.

Give It Time

If your heater is blowing out cold air right after you turned it on for the first time in a long time, it may be because it’s still firing up. Your furnace should start blowing warm air within the first 15 minutes of powering it up. Anything beyond that is when you should call the professionals for help.

Dirty Air Filter

An air filter is an essential part of a properly working HVAC system. If your air filter is full of dirt, blocking the hot air from flowing through, cold air can be some of the only air to make it through. Make sure you’re replacing your HVAC filter every few months, particularly after a season of using it frequently.

System Overheated

If your system overheats, it doesn’t always mean that your system has broken. Most heating systems come equipped with a safety feature that shuts off the heating element if the system overheats, preventing the opportunity for a fire. Your system can overheat due to:

  • Mechanical failure
  • Clogged air filters
  • Buildup
  • Old age

We recommend giving us a call to inspect the reasons your system may be overheating. It’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your heating system! Contact Surgi’s if you’re experiencing any of these issues!

Surgi’s was very pleasant to deal with. Always courteous customer service. Received my annual A/C maintenance today from Troy Robert. He gave me a courtesy call to let me know when he was coming. He arrived promptly, and was very friendly and informative. Highly recommended! Thank you!

Matthew J.

Very professional!

The technician, Rene, was very thorough and informative. He called before he was arriving to let me know when he would be there. It was in the window of time Surgis gave me. I will definitely use them for regular maintenance and future HVAC needs. Very professional!

He had all the parts that he needed and was able to resolve my problems in a few hours. My maintenance contract was reasonable and worth every penny. I receive excellent care. I highly recommend Surgi’s.
