Things to Check Before Calling for Furnace
A broken furnace can be stressful and frustrating. Sometimes, the problem is easy to fix. Here are a few tips on what to check before scheduling a service call.
- Check Your Thermostat - You may have forgotten to update your thermostat settings when the season changes. This is not uncommon, so be sure to check that the thermostat is set to Heat or Auto. If the thermostat isn’t turning on at all, it may need new batteries. Replacing the batteries may be all you need to do to get your system up and running again.
- Reset the Breaker - Before calling for professional help, check the breaker box. If the breaker has tripped, turn it off completely and then back on to restore power to your furnace. Breakers trip for safety so you shouldn’t be worried.
- Make Sure the Gas is On - If you had repairs done recently, it’s possible that someone may have forgotten to turn on the gas supply after previously shutting it off. Sometimes, gas companies shut down gas lines for maintenance. You may want to check with the gas company if you suspect they’ve shut off the gas supply.
- Replace the Air Filter
How Often to Change Your Furnace Filter
Something as simple as a clogged filter can cause major problems with your furnace. To put this worry aside, try to mark your calendar for regular filter changes. The minimum you should be changing your filter is once every 90 days. Different households have slightly different filter replacement needs, so change more often if you have pets or occupants with allergies or asthma.
