Being distressed about your comfort shouldn’t be something to stress about as seasons transform and temperatures drop in Champaign. It’s necessary to remember that even as you transition from using your air conditioner to a furnace, both systems run independently and should be managed as such so you can avoid AC and furnace repairs. After all, you don’t want to be confronted with your furnace going out in the course of the coldest part of winter.
We have mostly seen all that the Champaign weather can throw our home, and we’re here to make sure you’re comfortable even when it seems like the weather can’t get any more unpredictable. We recognize that if you’re contacting us at 3 a.m., all you need is for your furnace to be fixed quickly, and the right way, the first time around so you can get back to having a comfortable home. That’s why our team of NATE-certified technicians is accessible at any hour, day or night, to take responsibility of any furnace repair you may need. Plus, our team has the knowledge and proficiency to repair your furnace regardless of the make, model or age. You can relax knowing that we can take care of any adversity that may come up.
Of course we also must say that we immensely recommend that you have annual furnace service completed so that you’re not stuck contacting us in the middle of the night with problems. There are also some things that you can check yourself prior to calling us, so if you do end up calling, we’ll both be on the same page and know that these small things have already been monitored.
- Do you have the thermostat set to “heat”? – Once cooler weather finally settles in for good, it can be easy to forget that you need to have your thermostat switched over to “heat.” It happens a lot more often than you’d realize, so be sure you double-check your thermostat and its setting.
- Is the furnace switch on? – Commonly on the side of your
furnace, the furnace switch looks like a normal light switch and should be flipped up, or on. If it’s not, flip the switch on, and once the built-in time delay period has passed, your furnace will turn back on. The time delay is normally only a couple minutes.
- Have you changed your furnace filter? – Forgotten about more than people woud like to permit, furnace filters play a big role in the performance and efficiency of your system. There’s also a probability that it could block your furnace from functioning at all. Be sure to swap your furnace filter out every three months for maximum performance.
- Look at your circuit breaker – Another fundamental piece to check is your circuit breaker. If the breaker switch for your furnace is tripped, you can cycle it off and then back on. Doing so should allow the system to kick back on. If it doesn’t, give us a shout and we can work together to figure out what the obstacle is.
