Frequently Asked Questions
Why is my heater blowing cold air?
If your heater is blowing cold air instead of warm, chances are, it may be because of the following reasons:
- The Thermostat
Before calling for help from a heater contractor, check your thermostat first. It may have been changed to a lower setting by someone in your house that you weren’t informed of. Check the fan switch as well as the thermostat batteries.
If all is well, make sure that the setting is set higher than the temperature in your home.
- The Pilot Light
One reason could be that the pilot light of your heater is already dead. You can try relighting it but to be safe or it the light stays out, it’s best to call a professional technician to help you.
- The Filter
Heaters are equipped with filters that could become clogged in time. This can cause the heater to blow cold air as it can’t properly warm the air that comes through it. Fortunately, replacing filters can be easy and cheap.
- The Flame Sensor
If your heater starts to blow warm air and them blow cold air after a few minutes, this could be that the flame sensor needs cleaning. The cleaning process is not something you can do yourself so you need to contact a technician to do the job.
Why does it smell when I turn on my heater?
When you turn on your heater, especially if it’s the first time in a while, you may notice a burning smell. The most common reason for this is burning dust. When your heater has collected dust, the warm air will burn it.
The smell should disappear in a few hours, but if it persists, it could be a sign of a problem that needs the attention of a technician. We recommend having your system checked and signing up for regular scheduled maintenance.
How can I lower my heating bill?
Here are a few tips on how you can lower your heating bill:
- Adjust the Thermostat
You can lower your heating bill by as much as 10% per year if you turn your thermostat down by about 15 degrees for eight hours at night. A warm comforter can be your best friend when the nights turn cold.
- Clean the Furnace
Always keep the furnace clean and free from clogs. You won’t need to set the temperature high if the heater is working properly and giving out enough warm air. Also, make sure that the vents are clean and regularly maintained.
- Check for Air Leaks
Make sure that hot air isn’t going out and cold air coming in. You may need to do a bit of detective work here, but it’s worth it.
- Get Insulation
Proper insulation can get rid of those air leaks and keep your home warm while consuming less energy. This can be a DIY project or you can choose to have it done by a professional, either way, it’s a good investment.
