I just purchased a new house and when my furnace kicks on for a couple of minutes it blows cold air and slowly warms up I could understand if it did for a couple of seconds to get the cold air out of the ducts but this goes on for quite some time I also beleive it does it just before it shuts off but have not been able to find out yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
thanks

This is a commng complaint contractors face often. It takes some time for the warm air to reach the registers. The ductwork has to be heated as well for you to feel any difference. If you are on a crawl, you can insulate the duct to help with this. If you are on a slab, you out of luck for the most part. Start there. Good luck.

The reason it does it towards the end of its cycle is because the heater unit shuts down at the end of its cycle but the blower usually runs for a minute or two to make use of the hot air still in the ducts. Mine does the same thing.
