As the seasons change, the more you feel the cooler air gusting outside. And … right inside your house? If your gas furnace is blowing cold air and adding a chill to your East Bernard home, it’s time to contact E.B. Air, LLC. Occasionally an absence of warm air from your gas furnace results in a large repair, but many times it can be a simple fix. Here are a few of the more common reasons your gas furnace may be blowing cold air instead of warming up your house.
Your furnace may be overheating
If you haven’t had regular maintenance performed on your gas furnace recently and you’ve neglected to replace your air filter, either could be the reason why your furnace is blowing colder air. A dirty air filter can block air from flowing freely through your furnace. If this occurs, the furnace might 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 credited to something as simple as a pilot light that’s gone out. It’s possible, specifically with older furnaces, for a draft to smother a pilot light. Other reasons for an extinguished pilot light are defective gas valves or a faulty thermocouple.
Your furnace is dirty
Just as a dirty air filter can cause challenges for your gas furnace, so can other furnace components if they aren’t appropriately cleaned. A dirty gas burner or flame sensor could cause your furnace to struggle to stay lit and not be able to bring warmth to your home.
Your ducts may not be properly sealed
When ducts are correctly sealed or if they have any cracks or holes in them, you might be losing a lot of heated air before it can get to the vents.
