Here are a few simple steps you can check on your furnace before you contact us:
- Flip of a switch – The power flowing to your furnace is disciplined by the furnace switch, which is identical to a light switch. There’s a chance that it could have been flipped off on accident. Double check to make sure it’s set on. Furnaces most likely run on timed delays, so it may take a couple minutes for it to start up after flipping the switch.
- Heat it up – Long story short, make sure your heat is turned on. There are pros and cons to setting your fan to either ‘on’ or ‘auto’ through the winter. Weigh your options, the temperature of your home and how much you want to spend on your energy bill before you decide on 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 performance. To receive the most out of your system, we advocate replacing your filter every three months.
- Circuit breaker – For one reason or another, there’s a circumstance that the breaker controlling power to your furnace could have been tripped. Analyze your circuit breaker panel and see if the switch has been switched. If it has, cycle it by turning it off and then back on. It could take a couple moments for your system to wake up 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 issue is.
