As the seasons change, the more you feel the cooler air gusting outside. And … inside your home? If your gas furnace is blowing cold air and giving a chill to your Northglenn home, it’s time to contact Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.. Occasionally a lack of warm air from your gas furnace results in a big repair, but often it can be a simple fix. Here are several reasons your gas furnace might be blowing cold air instead of keeping your home toasty.
Your furnace might be overheating
If you haven’t had routine maintenance performed on your gas furnace for some time and you’ve overlooked changing your air filter, each could indicate 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
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 systems, for a draft to extinguish a pilot light. Other factors when it comes to 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 appropriately 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
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 even reaches the vents throughout the home.
