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 putting a chill to your Boynton Beach home, it’s time to call A2Z Air Inc. Occasionally an absence of warm air from your gas furnace means a major repair, but often it can be a simple 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 might be overheating
If you haven’t had routine maintenance done on your gas furnace lately and you’ve overlooked changing your air filter, either could be the reason why your furnace is blowing colder air. A dirty air filter can stop 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
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, specifically with older furnaces, for a gust of air to put out a pilot light. Other factors when it comes to an extinguished pilot light are defective gas valves or a faulty thermocouple.
Your furnace is dirty
Just as a dirty air filter can cause challenges 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 not be able to bring warmth to your home.
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 could be losing a lot of heated air before it even reaches the vents throughout the home.
