As the weather changes, the more you feel the colder air blustering outside. And … in your home? If your gas furnace is blowing cold air and adding a chill to your Murrieta home, it’s time to reach out to Cool Air Solutions. Occasionally a lack of warm air from your gas furnace calls for a major repair, but a lot of time it can be a simple fix. Here are a few of the more common reasons your gas furnace might be blowing cold air instead of making your home warm and cozy.
Your furnace could be overheating
If you haven’t had routine maintenance completed on your gas furnace for some time and you’ve neglected to replace 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. When this happens, the furnace could overheat and shut down its burner.
Your pilot light may have gone out
Sometimes 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, especially with older models, for a gust of air to smother a pilot light. Other factors when it comes to 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 issues 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 struggle 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 might be losing a lot of heated air before it can get to the vents.
