Why is my furnace not blowing hot air?

If the furnace is working but not blowing hot air or it is blowing cold air, it means it is not working as it should. Again, several problems can cause this issue.

Also, check the signs of clogging in the air filters to ensure that they are letting inadequate air.

Why did my furnace stop working?

Chances are that there is an ignition system problem. When you fire up the furnace, it should activate the ignition process. Any problem related to the igniter or pilots will likely cause problems. Again, you may need to check all airflow issues before you can think of other problems. Check the air filters and air ducts to rule out airflow issues. Check the thermostat to be sure it is not faulty or improperly set.

Why my furnace won’t stay on?

The furnace is designed to rely on the available airflow to make decisions. If the airflow is poor, the heat exchanger will be too hot within a short time, switching off the system. The exchanger is designed to continuously lose heat to the surrounding air. If the air is already too hot, the heat exchanger will immediately disconnect shutting down the furnace soon after powering it. The furnace will keep shutting off until you fix the underlying issue.

Why my furnace is leaking water?

Leakages often come from the condensate line. It could be a faulty line, drain, pump, or any other issue related to condensation. If you see water leakage from your furnace, power off the system and call a technician immediately.
