When your heater is blowing cold air, it can be very alarming. With a little troubleshooting you may be able to resolve the issue without making a service call.
1. Consider the circumstances. Did you just start your heater up for the first time? If so, the cold air may quickly be replaced by warm air. Remember the air in your ducts is the same temperature as in you home and it takes a little bit to push all of the cool air out.
2. Gas – Check to make sure the pilot is lit. If it won’t re-light, you need to check the fuel supply.
3. Thermostat – Make sure your thermostat is set to heat. Also check that the temperature setting is higher than the current temperature in your home. Also try replacing the battery. Low battery can interfere with your system operating properly.
4. Reset the system. Try rebooting your heating system by turning the temperature down so the unit is not running. Disconnect electricity to the unit for at least 2-3 minutes, then reconnect. Turn the temperature back up and see if that fixed the issue.
If these steps didn’t resolve your problem, it’s time to make a call to a HVAC professional. Your technician can inspect the sytem to determine the cause of the heater not working.
