As the weather changes, the more you feel the cool air gusting outside. And … right inside your house? If your gas furnace is blowing cold air and giving a chill to your Muskogee home, it’s time to reach out to Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc.. Occasionally a lack of warm air from your gas furnace results in a large repair, but a lot of time it can be a small 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 ongoing maintenance performed on your gas furnace recently and you’ve neglected to replace your air filter, either could signal why your furnace is blowing cool air. A dirty air filter can block air from flowing freely through your furnace. When this happens, the furnace might overheat and force the burner to shut down.
Your pilot light may have gone out
Sometimes 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 breeze to put out a pilot light. Other factors when it comes to an extinguished pilot light are faulty gas valves or a faulty thermocouple.
Your furnace is dirty
Just as a dirty air filter can mean issues 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 fight 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 sealed properly 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.
