Remember those cold mornings where you procrastinate to get out of bed because it’s so cold? There’s a way to dodge the stress 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 reduce 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 visit us:
- Flip of a switch – The power flowing to your furnace is disciplined by the furnace switch, which looks just like a light switch. There’s a probability that it could have been flipped off on accident. Double check to make sure it’s set on. Furnaces most likely run on timed delays, so it may take a couple minutes for it to start up after flipping the switch.
- Heat it up – Long story short, confirm your heat is turned on. There are pros and cons to setting your fan to either ‘on’ or ‘auto’ through the winter. Weigh your options, the temperature of your home and how much you want to spend on your energy bill before you change the furnace setting.
- Don’t forget the filter – Your furnace filter is an important piece to maintain a safe and clean home. Furnace filters protect your home from harmful particles in air flow and also alter your furnace’s productivity. To get the most out of your system, we advocate changing 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. View your circuit breaker panel and see if the switch has been flipped. If it has, cycle it by turning it off and then back on. It could take a couple minutes for your system to start 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 aggravating. As long as you’re keeping up with proper furnace service, you should be doing well. However, these simple tips can help you notice the issue is before calling in the experts. Give us a call at 603-923-4570 or make an appointment online.
