As the weather changes, the more you feel the cool air blustering outside. And … inside your home? If your gas furnace is blowing cold air and putting a chill to your Georgetown home, it’s time to contact Miller Climate Control LLC. Occasionally an absence of warm air from your gas furnace means a large repair, but many times it can be an easy fix. Here are a few of the more common reasons your gas furnace may be blowing cold air instead of keeping your home toasty.
Your furnace may be overheating
If you haven’t had regular 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 may 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 attributed to something as simple as a pilot light that’s gone out. It’s possible, particularly with older furnaces, for a breeze to extinguish a pilot light. Other reasons for an extinguished pilot light are damaged 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 correctly cleaned. A dirty gas burner or flame sensor could cause your furnace to struggle 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 could be losing a lot of heated air before it can get to the vents.
