Why is My Gas Furnace Blowing Cold Air?

As the temps change, the more you feel the cool air blustering outside. And … inside your home? If your gas furnace is blowing cold air and giving a chill to your Middle Georgia home, it’s time to contact Air Concepts of Middle Georgia. Once in a while a lack of warm air from your gas furnace means a big repair, but often it can be a small fix. Here are a few of the more common reasons your gas furnace could be blowing cold air instead of keeping your home toasty.

Your furnace might be overheating

If you haven’t had ongoing maintenance performed on your gas furnace for some time and you’ve neglected to replace your air filter, both could indicate why your furnace is blowing cold 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 related to something as simple as a pilot light that’s gone out. It’s possible, especially with older models, for a breeze to smother a pilot light. Other factors when it comes to an extinguished pilot light are faulty gas valves or a faulty thermocouple.

Your furnace is dirty

Just as a dirty air filter can cause 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 battle 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 could be losing a lot of heated air before it can get to the vents.
