Here’s What to Do When Your Furnace Won’t Ignite

We are making our way through the last few weeks of winter but we still need our furnaces, especially during cool nights. Nothing is worse than turning in at night and realizing your furnace won’t turn on. If you find yourself in this situation, here are a couple things you can check yourself before your call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning.

Check Air Filters

You should change standard air filters monthly. If you fail to do so, they can get clogged, restricting air flow and resulting in your furnace malfunctioning.

Check Your Thermostat

Start by turning the thermostat up a few degrees to get the furnace to turn on. If the true room temperature is higher than the thermostat, the furnace won’t kick on. Also, make sure the system switch is on “heat” or “auto.”

Check the Power

It may seem obvious, but make sure the power switch next to the furnace is “On.” Even gas heating equipment uses electricity so verify the breaker has not tripped and that the power switch was not accidently flipped to the “Off” position.

If you check all these things and your heating system will still not start up, give Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning a call at 215-259-5850 and we’ll come out and take care of you as soon as possible.
