As the temps change, the more you feel the colder air gusting 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 reach out to CNR Air Conditioning Inc. Sometimes a lack of warm air from your gas furnace means a big repair, but often 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 regular maintenance completed on your gas furnace recently and you’ve overlooked changing your air filter, both could be the reason why your furnace is blowing cold air. A dirty air filter can block air from flowing freely through your furnace. If this occurs, the furnace might overheat and cause the burner to shut down.
Your pilot light may have gone out
It’s probable 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 systems, for a breeze to put out a pilot light. Other causes of an extinguished pilot light are damaged gas valves or a faulty thermocouple.
Your furnace is dirty
Just as a dirty air filter can mean problems 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 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 ever reaches your vents.
