Dayton Heater Repair 101: Diagnosing a Heater Gone Cold

What to Do When Your Heater Blows Cold Air

Like your well when it runs dry, you never miss your heater until it starts blowing cold air. Relax. It’s not time to panic. The solution could be simple, though it may require some help from a professional. Here are a few reasons why your heater has decided to drop a cold spell.

Pilot Light is Out

One of the most common reasons an older furnace is blowing cold air is the pilot light went out. All this requires is a flashlight and a read of the manufacturer’s instructions, usually located on the inside door of the furnace. If it doesn’t stay lit, contact a heater repair specialist in Dayton. There may be something wrong with your heater that’s a potential fire hazard.

Dirty Flame Sensor

If the air goes from warm to cold, there’s a good sense your flame sensor needs cleaned. A gas burner won’t stay lit with a dirty flame sensor. Contact a heater maintenance specialist like Environmental Doctor.

If you can’t diagnose and fix the problem yourself, contact a professional. It could be routine maintenance or a potentially dangerous problem. Environmental Doctor has been solving heating problems for over a decade. We service all makes and models and offer free in-home estimates.
