Common Furnace Problems
While we love to spend time with our clients, sometimes what may appear to be a full furnace break-down may actually be a quick fix. To save you time and money, here are a few tips to see if your furnace is actually in need of repair:
It’s easy to forget to change the setting on your thermostat when the season is changing. If you notice your furnace isn’t running, make sure to check that your thermostat is set to the heating option.
If your furnace is performing poorly, you may have a dirty filter. Furnace filters should be changed every three months for ideal performance.
All furnaces have a switch that usually looks similar to a light switch. If you notice the switch is set to down (off), switch it back up (on), and your furnace should start running in a few minutes.
If you’re furnace isn’t working, there is a chance the circuit breaker connected to the furnace was accidentally switched off. Check to see if the circuit breaker is set to off or stuck in the middle position. If it is in the middle position, switch it down first, and then switch it back on.
