Is your furnace starting to act abnormal? Or maybe you have a few questions about furnace maintenance; either way, you came to the right place. In this article, Our expert HVAC technicians at Lewis Center-Powell Heating & Air will be touching on some frequently asked questions homeowners ask about their home’s furnace. 

Why Is Cold Air Coming From My Furnace? 

Unfortunately, various issues could be occurring when cold air is distributed from your furnace. When inspecting these issues, first, you should check your thermostat and confirm the fan settings are set to AUTO. If the fan settings are correct, the next thing you should do is check that your furnace hasn’t overheated or that you have blown a fuse on your breaker box. 

Why Is My Furnace Leaking Water?

It is stressful for homeowners to deal with their furnaces enduring damages, especially when their equipment leaks water. You may be experiencing a condensation leak if you find that your furnace is leaking. Condensation is created through the cooling exhaust in your heating equipment; this line is channeled through a floor drain. The condensation leak more than likely occurred due to a blockage or damage in the condensate line. 

How Can I Avoid Putting Extra Stress On My Furnace?

The best way to keep your furnace from overworking this winter is to adjust your thermostat as needed. For instance, if you leave your house for the day, lower the temperature on your thermostat a couple of degrees to lighten the workload on your furnace while you’re away. Your furnace can benefit from this by avoiding future issues or a complete shutdown of your heating equipment.
