Does the furnace in your home turn off and on frequently before reaching the desired temperature set on your thermostat? This is known as "short cycling". Short cycling is typically a symptom of the actual problem.
In this case it was lack of air flow due to an excessively built up indoor Air Conditioning coil. The indoor Air Conditioning coil is called an "evaporative coil". The evaporative coil sits on top of your furnace and is built similar to the radiator in your car, it has a bunch of tubes surrounded by little metal fins. When your furnace is heating your home the warm air must pass through these fins to get to the rooms in your home. If these fins are clogged by debris the heated air cannot escape the cabinet of your furnace, which will build more heat as more air tries to get by these clogged fins. This causes the furnace to over heat and a safety device called a "high limit" will turn off the burners in the furnace while leaving the fan on in an attempt to cool the system back down. Customers will often experience "cold air" coming from the furnace until the high limit is reset and the burners come back on. If this condition is left untreated it can often cause premature system failure and costly repairs.
The only way to fix it is to take it all apart and carefully clean it. This IS NOT something I recommend doing yourself. You should contact a heating and Air Conditioning Contractor such as Fire & Ice Heating and Air to perform this lengthy and delicate task.
Below you will find some pictures of a recent service performed on a furnace that would not heat the home one cold Saturday morning. This service took about 3 hours to complete. After the cleaning the furnace no longer "short cycled" and the air flow was significantly increased.

This is a recent installation we performed. This replaced an old horizontal unit. We had to relocate indoor A/C coil and condensate pump, modify return ductwork (including a square to round duct fitting made on site), Build new supply plenum, add new supply duct for this area and install new PVC pipe for the systems intake and exhaust.

Does your blower look like this one? This is the blower wheel of a furnace I recently serviced. The entire lower portion of the furnace was in this condition and the homeowners were not even aware of the situation until we performed our 19 point Tune-up and safety inspection. This is what moves the air for your furnace and air conditioner. This amount of build up on the motor can cause premature failure if left un treated. All this was caused by a poor filtration system.

Fall is here and winter is approaching fast. Did you know most furnace failures could be avoided with annual maintenance? Fire & Ice Heating and Air is committed to helping you prevent that dreaded early morning realization that sometime last night your furnace stopped working and now you can see your breath. By performing a furnace tune-up or maintenance we can usually catch minor issues before they become major ones. This can even save energy if your system is not properly tuned, has heavy build up or poor air flow.  We are currently running a $59 furnace tune-up and safety inspection.
