As the temps change, the more you feel the cooler air blowing outside. And … inside your home? If your gas furnace is blowing cold air and putting a chill to your Hasbrouck Heights home, it’s time to contact ACE Solutions. Once in a while an absence of warm air from your gas furnace results in a big repair, but a lot of time it can be an easy fix. Here are some of the main reasons your gas furnace might be blowing cold air instead of keeping your home toasty.
Your furnace might be overheating
If you haven’t had routine maintenance performed on your gas furnace recently and you’ve forgotten to change your air filter, each could signal why your furnace is blowing cool air. A dirty air filter can stop air from flowing freely through your furnace. If that happens, the furnace could overheat and shut down its burner.
Your pilot light may have gone out
It’s probable a lack of warm air from your gas furnace can be attributed to something as simple as a pilot light that’s gone out. It’s possible, especially with older furnaces, for a breeze to put out 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 result in challenges for your gas furnace, so can other furnace components if they aren’t properly cleaned. A dirty gas burner or flame sensor could cause your furnace to battle to stay lit and reduce the warmth inside your house.
Your ducts may not be properly sealed
If your ducts aren’t sealed properly 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.
