Being concerned about your comfort shouldn’t be something to think about as seasons transform and temperatures drop in Oakville. It’s important to remember that even as you transition from using your air conditioner to a furnace, both systems run independently and should be controlled 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 Oakville weather can throw our direction, and we’re here to make sure you’re prepared 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 warm home. That’s why our team of NATE-certified technicians is ready at any hour, day or night, to take care 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 rest easy knowing that we can take care of any issues that may come up.
Of course we also must say that we highly recommend that you have annual furnace service completed so that you’re not stuck calling us in the middle of the night with a broken furnace. There are also a few 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 minute things have already been looked at.
- Do you have the thermostat set to “heat”? – Once colder weather finally settles in for good, it can be natural to forget that you need to have your thermostat changed over to “heat.” It happens a lot more often than you’d expect, so be sure you double-check your thermostat and its setting.
- Is the furnace switch on? – Usually 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 ran, your furnace will turn back on. The time delay is regularly only a couple minutes.
- Have you changed your furnace filter? – Forgotten about more than people woud like to permit, furnace filters play a considerable role in the performance and efficiency of your system. There’s also a chance 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 component 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 ring and we can work together to figure out what the problem is.
