Remember those freezing mornings where you don’t want to get out of bed because it’s so cold? There’s a way to avoid the headache that can come with a broken down furnace. When you schedule routine furnace service, you’re not only taking care of any unavoidable needs that your system requires, but you’re helping to more than likely shrink the chance that your furnace will break down in the future.

Here are a few simple steps you can check on your furnace before you call us:
- Flip of a switch – The power going to your furnace is controlled by the furnace switch, which looks just like a light switch. There’s a possibility that it could have been flipped off on accident. Double check to make sure it’s flipped on. Furnaces generally run on timed delays, so it may take a couple minutes for it to begin 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 cold weather. 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 essential piece to maintain a protected and neat home. Furnace filters shield your home from unsafe particles in air flow and also impact your furnace’s performance. To receive the most out of your system, we advocate switching your filter every three months.
- Circuit breaker – For one reason or another, there’s a possibility that the breaker controlling power to your furnace could have been tripped. Check 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 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 issue is.
Furnace repair doesn’t have to be hard. As long as you’re keeping up with routine furnace service, you should be doing well. However, these simple tips can help you figure out the issue is before calling in the experts. Give us a call at 289-813-5566 or make an appointment online.
