Here are a few easy things you can check on your furnace before you visit us:
- Flip of a switch – The power flowing to your furnace is controlled by the furnace switch, which looks just like a light switch. There’s a probability that it could have been flipped off on accident. Double check to make sure it’s set on. Furnaces generally run on timed delays, so it may take a couple minutes for it to turn on after flipping the switch.
- Heat it up – Long story short, verify your heat is turned on. There are pros and cons to setting your fan to either ‘on’ or ‘auto’ through the seasons. Weigh your options, the temperature of your home and how much you plan to spend on your energy bill before you change the furnace setting.
- Don’t forget the filter – Your furnace filter is an important piece to maintain a safe and fresh home. Furnace filters shield your home from harmful particles in air flow and also influence your furnace’s efficiency. To receive the most out of your system, we recommend replacing your filter every three months.
- Circuit breaker – For one reason or another, there’s a chance that the breaker controlling power to your furnace could have been tripped. Check your circuit breaker panel and see if the switch has been shifted. If it has, cycle it by turning it off and then back on. It could take a couple times for your system to kick back on due to the built-in time delay. If it still isn’t working, give us a call and we can help you figure out what the matter is.
Furnace repair doesn’t have to be hard. As long as you’re keeping up with routine furnace service, you should be doing just fine. However, these simple tips can help you decipher the issue is before calling in the experts. Give us a call at 780-800-9047 or make an appointment online.
