Adjusting gas pressure on Goodman furnace
The pressure regulator regulates the amount of gas flowing into your home. The amount of gas coming in should be between 4 and 7 PSI for most homes. If you are using a whole-house humidifier, try adjusting the pressure to 6 PSI or 5 PSI.
Finally, try adjusting the pressure to 3-5 PSI if you are experiencing problems with combustion air getting into your home.
It’s important to keep in mind that this is just a temporary fix and might not solve your problem.
Turn off your furnace and all its fuel sources to adjust the pressure. You won’t need to touch combustible materials while adjusting the pressure, so make sure to wear gloves to avoid accidental contact with hot surfaces or items. Next, lower a valve at the bottom of your furnace and raise it until there is a noticeable increase in gas flow. Turn back on your furnace and ensure everything is working correctly before continuing your work day.
If the gas pressure is too high, it will result in the furnace heating up too quickly and could cause damage to the furnace. It also causes a lot of noise and vibration, which can be annoying if you live nearby.
