Quick Tips On Your Furnace

Here is a list of our most common problems for Furnace related issues. Make sure to browse through these to ensure you have done all you can at home before contacting a Technician. Although we would be happy to assist, most of these common issues can be resolved before requiring a Service call.

My furnace is not turning on

Make sure your furnace is getting power. Check your fuse box for any tripped circuit breakers, especially since this could indicate a bigger problem with your electrical system.

Does the Furnace have power

Ensure that the furnace power switch has been switched “ON”. Since furnaces can be tucked into tight, confining spaces or closets, the switch can easily be accidentally turned to “OFF”. Look for the power switch mounted on the side of the furnace. It may also include a liftable metal housing containing a fuse. If the fuse is blackened and burnt, then it will need to be replaced. However, remember that a blown fuse may also indicate a bigger system problem, so the system should be inspected by a licensed technician.

Check for outdoor blockages or obstructions

Look outside to make sure that nothing is blocking the fresh air intake and the exhaust. Not all furnaces vent through chimneys. Many newer furnaces have their fresh air intakes and exhausts running through the side of the home and sometimes windblown leaves, insects, and moisture affect heating systems. If this is the case, you might want to consult a licensed technician about possible venting solutions.

Thermostat Settings for the Season

Check your thermostat settings. Make certain that your thermostat has been set to “HEAT” and that it is set to a temperature high enough for the furnace to come on. While that sounds obvious, it’s a small detail that is easily forgotten by a worried homeowner. It’s a good idea to keep your thermostat’s User Guide stored near the thermostat. That way you can consult the troubleshooting section in the event of a start-up problem.

Did you replace the batteries

Check The Batteries in the thermostat. Many programmable thermostats feature a flashing “LOW BATTERY” icon on their control screen. If you see this warning, replace the batteries with new ones.

Weak or Intermittent air flow

Check your furnace filter. If your furnace is firing up but its not blowing as hard as it normally does, then it might mean that the air filter needs to be changed. Air filters trap dust, hair and other particles in the air and over time the filter gets full of debris and air cannot pass through it. On most residential heating systems, air filters should be changed every 3 months.

If you have tried everything and your furnace will still not start, call for a certified, licensed technician to inspect your furnace. Newer gas furnaces are far more complex than older models so you will need expert advice. Often a technician can tell you about factors common to your furnace make and model so that you can solve them yourself in the future. Technicians can also identify issues and repair components instead of an expensive emergency service call.
