As the temps change, the more you feel the cool air blowing outside. And … right inside your house? If your gas furnace is blowing cold air and giving a chill to your Lodi home, it’s time to reach out to Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning. Occasionally the loss of warm air from your gas furnace results in a major repair, but a lot of time it can be a simple fix. Here are several reasons your gas furnace might be blowing cold air instead of warming up your house.
Your furnace could be overheating
If you haven’t had routine maintenance completed on your gas furnace recently and you’ve overlooked changing your air filter, either could indicate why your furnace is blowing cool air. A dirty air filter can prevent air from flowing freely through your furnace. If this occurs, the furnace may overheat and force the burner to shut down.
Your pilot light may have gone out
Sometimes 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, specifically with older models, for a breeze to put out a pilot light. Other reasons for an extinguished pilot light are defective gas valves or a faulty thermocouple.
Your furnace is dirty
Just as a dirty air filter can cause 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 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 ever reaches your vents.
