A furnace generates hot air and an AC cold air—both in a centralized location—which is then blown through the ducts in the house with a fan.

It doesn’t seem to be a huge deal. In point of fact, however, it can signal a serious problem. If you detect lower air flow coming out of your furnace, turn it off and call in a repair service immediately.
