There are a few possible reasons why your furnace blows cold air. First, a furnace will blow cool air for a minute or so after it starts up, until the heat exchanger warms up. A dirty filter can cause the air to be cooler than normal. The thermostat may be set to 'on' instead of auto, which will cause the fan to continually blow. Other possible causes of this problem include a bad gas valve or igniter, or a faulty heating element.
