    Sounds like you might be losing combustion air. Have a tech come out and check the intake and exhaust flueways. I ran into this a few times.
    Do it right, or dont do it at all!

    what does your pilot flame look like? if its yellow and the ends of the flame turn up, it could just need a cleaning. If the flame is a strong horizontal blue flame its most likely a weak/bad thermocouple.
