HVAC Repair: why your Las Vegas heating system is blowing cold air
Clogged HVAC Las Vegas Air Filter
You might notice that along with cool air, you also find that your furnace turns on and off as it is working. The cause of this is often that the air filter is dirty and is blocking the airflow. At some point, this can trigger the safety switch and turn off the burners. That’s why cold air starts coming through your vents. Make sure to change out your disposable air filter or clean your permanent one every 3 months.
The Thermostat Is Set Incorrectly
Has someone played around with your thermostat settings? If the automatic setting was switched off and set to ON, then the fan will blow at all times. When the burner stops, the air will still flow, which means that it will be cool when it comes out. Make sure that your thermostat is set to AUTO to prevent this.
The Pilot Light Has Gone Out
There are a couple of reasons why your pilot light might go out. In some cases, it just has blown out all on its own. This can happen if there is a buildup of dirt or soot that has caused it to smother. It could also be that a thermocouple is not working. If this happens, you can attempt to light the pilot light yourself. However, this requires a steady hand and if you aren’t immediately successful, call up a professional right away.
Problems With The Thermostat
If it’s set properly, there may be another issue with your thermostat that is causing the problem. For instance, it could be as simple as the battery has run out. There’s always the possibility that if it’s a new thermostat, you installed one that does not work with your HVAC Las Vegas system. Contact a professional to help you select a new one that will work properly.
The Condensate Line is Clogged
Furnaces cause a lot of condensation. For the most part, this condensation is cleared out through a drain. However, it can get clogged, which will cause the furnace to run cold and could lead to water leaking into your home. If this is the case, then you will certainly need to call in a professional for help.
