We are getting through the last few weeks of winter but we still are relying on our furnaces, especially during cold nights. Not much is worse than turning in at night just to find out your furnace won’t start up. If your furnace won’t turn on, here are a couple things you can check yourself before calling Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing.
Check Air Filters
You should swap out standard air filters monthly. If you fail to do so, they can become clogged, obstructing air flow and resulting in a furnace malfunction.
Check Your Thermostat
See if turning the temperature up a few degrees will get the furnace to turn on. If the true room temperature is higher than the thermostat, the furnace won’t run. Also, verify the system switch is on “heat” or “auto.”
Check the Power
It may seem silly, but verify the power switch next to the heating system is “On.” Even gas heating systems use electricity so verify the breaker has not tripped and that the power switch wasn’t accidently flipped to the “Off” position.
If you review all these things and your heating system will still not start up, give Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing a call at 866-397-3787 and we’ll come out and take care of you as soon as possible.
