As the seasons change, the more you feel the cooler air blustering outside. And … inside your home? If your gas furnace is blowing cold air and giving a chill to your Eastland home, it’s time to contact J & J Air Conditioning. Occasionally a lack of warm air from your gas furnace calls for a big repair, but many times it can be a simple fix. Here are several reasons your gas furnace could be blowing cold air instead of keeping your home toasty.
Your furnace might be overheating
If you haven’t had ongoing maintenance performed on your gas furnace lately and you’ve forgotten to change your air filter, either could indicate why your furnace is blowing cool air. A dirty air filter can prevent air from flowing freely through your furnace. If that happens, the furnace might overheat and force 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 breeze to put out a pilot light. Other reasons for an extinguished pilot light are faulty gas valves or a faulty thermocouple.
Your furnace is dirty
Just as a dirty air filter can result in problems 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 fight to stay lit and not be able to bring warmth to your home.
Your ducts may not be properly sealed
If your ducts aren’t properly sealed or if they have any cracks or holes in them, you could be losing a lot of heated air before it even reaches the vents throughout the home.
