Remember those cold 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 immediate needs that your system needs, but you’re helping to more than likely decrease the chance that your furnace will break down in the future.

Here are a few uncomplicated steps you can check on your furnace before you visit us:
- Flip of a switch – The power moving 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 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, make sure 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 choose the furnace setting.
- Don’t forget the filter – Your furnace filter is an important piece to maintain a protected and fresh home. Furnace filters shield your home from unhealthy particles in air flow and also alter your furnace’s efficiency. To get the most out of your system, we propose 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. 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 matter is.
Furnace repair doesn’t have to be hard. As long as you’re keeping up with proper furnace service, you should be doing just fine. However, these simple tips can help you figure out the issue is before calling in the experts. Give us a call at 301-476-4577 or make an appointment online.
