Why Is My Furnace Blowing Lukewarm Air?
During a cold winter, your home’s furnace will become the most vital appliance you have. You expect to receive a steady supply of warm air from your vents whenever the furnace turns on.
But if your furnace comes on and the air coming from the ventilation system is only lukewarm, resulting in insufficient heating for your house, you should call for professional repairs right away. Do not attempt to diagnose and troubleshoot the problem for yourself, especially if you have gas-powered furnace. Heating technicians, like those at Dynamic Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning, can safely find what’s wrong with your Hartford, CT furnace and provide you with the correct repairs that will get your house warm once again.
Reasons for insufficient heating from a furnace
- Ductwork breaks: The ducts that channel the warm air from your furnace to the vents must maintain a tight seal to avoid a drop in air pressure. A leak in the ventilation system will not only jeopardize air pressure, it will lead to air from other parts of the house, most of it colder than the air from the furnace, entering and causing a drop in temperature. Professionals must locate the seal and seal them.
- Thermostat trouble: The issue may stem from a thermostat that is malfunctioning and is either misreading indoor temperatures or isn’t properly regulating the temperature in the furnace.
- Broken heating elements: If you have an electric furnace, the problem may be due to one of the heating elements in the cabinet burning out. Electric furnaces need more than one heating element to operate, and should one cease working, the furnace will lose its heating power.
Never delay with furnace repairs
Even if you can still stay “passably” comfortable from the lukewarm air coming from your furnace, you should never let a repair issue go without professional attention. The problem could soon cause a complete breakdown or even a safety hazard. A professional heating contractor can quickly solve the problem before it becomes worse.
