Remember those freezing mornings where you procrastinate 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 reduce the chance that your furnace will break down in the future.

Here are a few simple conditions you can check on your furnace before you contact us:
- Flip of a switch – The power flowing to your furnace is contained 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 flipped on. Furnaces usually run on timed delays, so it may take a couple minutes for it to begin after flipping the switch.
- Heat it up – Long story short, verify 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 decide on the furnace setting.
- Don’t forget the filter – Your furnace filter is an important piece to maintain a protected and clean home. Furnace filters defend your home from harmful particles in air flow and also alter your furnace’s efficiency. To gain 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. Analyze 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 kick back on 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 problem is.
Furnace repair doesn’t have to be hard. As long as you’re keeping up with regular furnace service, you should be doing alright. However, these simple tips can help you decipher the issue is before calling in the experts. Give us a call at 574-218-6404 or make an appointment online.
