As the temps change, the more you feel the cooler air gusting outside. And … inside your home? If your gas furnace is blowing cold air and putting a chill to your Muldrow home, it’s time to reach out to Air Service Co.. Occasionally an absence of warm air from your gas furnace calls for a major repair, but many times it can be an easy fix. Here are a few of the more common reasons your gas furnace could be blowing cold air instead of warming up your house.
Your furnace could be overheating
If you haven’t had routine maintenance completed on your gas furnace recently and you’ve overlooked changing your air filter, either could indicate why your furnace is blowing cool air. A dirty air filter can block 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 could be that 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, specifically with older furnaces, for a draft to smother 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 cause issues 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 leave you in the cold.
Your ducts may not be properly sealed
When ducts are correctly sealed or if they have any cracks or holes in them, you may be losing a lot of heated air before it even reaches the vents throughout the home.
