Why Is My Furnace Blowing Cold Air?

Dowe & Wagner

Cold air blowing out of your home’s vents in the summer:  nice. Cold air blowing out now, with the furnace on?  Something’s wrong, which may be a simple problem, or indicate a major repair.   In the fall, when people switch their thermostat to heat, they hope to hear the reassuring hum of a functioning furnace, and feel the gentle stream of warm air.  After 10 minutes of waiting and no activity, or room temperature air blowing from the vent, what should homeowners do?

Tom Eppers, co-owner, Dowe & Wagner, a heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) company serving residential and commercial customers in Illinois and Wisconsin, advises to check the furnace’s air filter.  A filthy filter can impede airflow, and cause the furnace to overwork, overheat, and sometimes shut off as a safety feature.   Filters should be replaced regularly, according to the furnace’s manufacturer’s instructions.  If there are allergies or pets in the house, the filter may need to be changed more often than the typical monthly recommendation.

According to HVAV experts, a simple cause of a furnace blowing cold air is not switching your fan setting to “auto.”  The “on” position instructs the fan to work continuously, even when it’s not heating the air.  In the “auto” mode, the fan will only blow warm air, operating when the furnace is running.

For older furnaces, cold air streaming from the vents could indicate a blown out pilot light.  The owner’s manual details how to re-light it safely.  If it doesn’t remain lit, an HVAC professional may need to be called.

If the air starts warm but soon turns cold, the flame sensor may need professional cleaning.   An annual maintenance visit to clean and service your furnace twice a year helps prevent equipment breakdowns.

Honeywell Tours Major Cities to Promote T Series

As homeowners learn more about “connected homes,” HVAC contractors are realizing they need to be able to present themselves as connected home experts; as much, if not more so than the salesman in the big box store. And it helps when manufacturers lend a hand with product positioning.

With that in mind, Honeywell has introduced its T Series portfolio of connected and non-connected

The Lyric T Pro

thermostats, including the Lyric™ T6 Pro Wi-Fi for professional installation.

Developed to help contractors manage complexity and maximize opportunities while providing customers with the features and usability they seek, the entire T Series streamlines Honeywell’s long-standing expertise in home comfort.

To introduce the product to contractors and distributors, Honeywell product managers embarked on an October  road trip, with stops in Baltimore, Long Island, Chicago, Milwaukee, Dallas and Vancouver.

“We’re very pleased with the reception we’ve been getting from contractors. And, it’s not really a surprise, because we spent an enormous amount of time talking to contractors about what they want in a connected thermostat,” said Nate Kraft, director of home comfort, Honeywell.

“All of these products are fundamentally built off of things contractors and distributors told us, and

are rooted in all that we learned from them,” Kraft said. That feedback included concern over big box store product availability.

“One of our basic principles was to design the non-connected and the connected thermostats in a way that contractors never find themselves in a situation where a customer says they can buy the same product at a store for a lower price,” Kraft explained. (A Lyric T5 Wi-Fi product is for consumer and DIY applications.)

“It made the conversation more complicated. Explaining some of those details to a consumer is challenging. We want to stop that from happening. And, in addition to just the look, and having a space between the retail and professional products, we’ve built in a ton of differentiation for contractors, with the features, tweaks and settings we know the contractors want,” Kraft added.
Features of  the new thermostats include easy, time-based scheduling; real-time status availability; a new vacation mode; and temperature hold settings.

From product selection and easy installation, to customer support and future upgrades, the T Series is engineered to deliver confidence. To further integrate into a home, the Lyric T6 Pro benefits from the newly updated Lyric app (V3), as well as Honeywell’s growing partnership ecosystem, which includes Apple HomeKit™* for control via Siri and the new Apple Home app in iOS 10, compatibility with Amazon Echo, Stringify, and others.

For HVAC contractors, every model in the T Series uses Honeywell’s new UWP mounting system, offering a cleaner, faster installation. When a customer wants to change from a non-connected T Series thermostat to a connected model, the UWP mounting system means that the cover plate can be swapped without needing to also replace the wall plate. Setting up a T Series thermostat is straightforward via steps and menus that contractors are already accustomed to, meaning greater

clarity and usability, and less time.

Greg Perry, president of an Aire Serve HVAC franchise in Prince Georges County, attended the Baltimore road show. He said he’s excited about the selling opportunities the new thermostats provide for contractors.

“I’ve always loved Honeywell’s products. I love the swap-outs, and that you can upgrade without replacing the back plates. If a customer starts with a non-programmable thermostat, and the next year decides they want a programmable, it’s a very easy upgrade and upsell. Being able to do the WiFi, bring in the integration of the low bandwidth inside the home, will take them to the next level,” Perry said.

“I think this product is a winner,” said distributor Ray Mikell, vice president of HVAC/hydronics sales for Thos. Somerville Co., Upper Marlboro, Md.

“The simplicity, the added features, and the opportunity for contractors to walk in, evaluate a situation, simplify the labor process, and upgrade, make it a win-win situation for the customer and the contractor,” Mikell said.

Thos. Somerville Co. has distributed Honeywell products for more than 20 years.
“Without a question they’re the leader in the industry not only with thermostats, but across their entire product line. It’s a pleasure to deal with Honeywell’s representation, quality of product and what they stand for,” Mikell said.

Honeywell’s slate of connected products now include three main products:
• RedLINK Wireless Systems, for customers who want the convenience of remote comfort control and require a more robust solution.
• Wi-Fi thermostats, for customers who value the flexibility of remote visibility and control, and simply want to get connected.
• Lyric Round™ Wi-Fi thermostats. The second generation Lyric Round Wi-Fi thermostat is for customers who want the freedom to stay in touch with their home’s connected systems to maximize savings, comfort and security.

The Honeywell Contractor Portal provides 24/7 access to home conditions and system performance, helping them to proactively diagnose potential issues before they become costly problems. The Contractor Portal connects to all Honeywell RedLINK and Wi-Fi thermostats, Honeywell Wi-Fi thermostats purchased at retail, and the Lyric Round Wi-Fi thermostat.
