As the temps change, the more you feel the colder air blowing outside. And … inside your home? If your gas furnace is blowing cold air and adding a chill to your Naples home, it’s time to call Speedy Air Conditioning. Once in a while a lack of warm air from your gas furnace calls for a big repair, but many times it can be an easy fix. Here are some of the main reasons your gas furnace could be blowing cold air instead of making your home warm and cozy.
Your furnace might be overheating
If you haven’t had ongoing maintenance done on your gas furnace for some time and you’ve forgotten to change your air filter, each could indicate why your furnace is blowing colder air. A dirty air filter can block air from flowing freely through your furnace. When this happens, the furnace could 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 attributed to something as simple as a pilot light that’s gone out. It’s possible, especially with older furnaces, for a gust of air to smother 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 properly cleaned. A dirty gas burner or flame sensor could cause your furnace to fight to stay lit and reduce the warmth inside your house.
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 can get to the vents.
