As the temps change, the more you feel the colder air gusting outside. And … right inside your house? If your gas furnace is blowing cold air and putting a chill to your Litchfield Park home, it’s time to call Cooler Tymes LLC. Once in a while an absence of warm air from your gas furnace results in a large repair, but many times it can be a small fix. Here are some of the main reasons your gas furnace might be blowing cold air instead of making your home warm and cozy.
Your furnace may be overheating
If you haven’t had regular maintenance performed on your gas furnace recently and you’ve overlooked changing your air filter, either could signal why your furnace is blowing cool air. A dirty air filter can prevent air from flowing freely through your furnace. If this occurs, the furnace may overheat and cause the burner to shut down.
Your pilot light may have gone out
It’s probable a lack of warm air from your gas furnace can be related to something as simple as a pilot light that’s gone out. It’s possible, particularly with older models, for a draft to put out a pilot light. Other causes of an extinguished pilot light are faulty gas valves or a faulty thermocouple.
Your furnace is dirty
Just as a dirty air filter can mean challenges for your gas furnace, so can other furnace components if they aren’t correctly cleaned. A dirty gas burner or flame sensor could cause your furnace to struggle to stay lit and reduce the warmth inside your house.
Your ducts may not be properly sealed
When ducts are correctly sealed or if they have any cracks or holes in them, you could be losing a lot of heated air before it ever reaches your vents.
