As the seasons change, the more you feel the colder air blowing outside. And … inside your home? If your gas furnace is blowing cold air and putting a chill to your Branchville home, it’s time to contact Willco Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Inc.. Sometimes a lack of warm air from your gas furnace results in a big repair, but a lot of time it can be a simple fix. Here are a few of the more common 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 routine maintenance done on your gas furnace for some time and you’ve neglected to replace your air filter, both could signal why your furnace is blowing colder air. A dirty air filter can prevent air from flowing freely through your furnace. If that happens, the furnace may overheat and cause the burner to shut down.
Your pilot light may have gone out
It could be that 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, especially with older models, for a draft to put out a pilot light. Other causes of an extinguished pilot light are defective 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 battle 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 might be losing a lot of heated air before it ever reaches your vents.
