4 Tips for Furnace Repair

April 15, 2016

Spring may have sprung but in Sharonville it’s not all warm and comfy outside. Your furnace has been going for months attempting to keep your home comfortable, so now is the time to make sure you’re giving your furnace some love. If you hear abnormal noises or the heating system has turned itself off, you may be in need of a furnace repair. If you notice a severe gas smell, you almost definitely need furnace repair work and you should call Knochelmann Service Experts promptly.

Before you decide that you need a furnace repair technician, check out these tips from Knochelmann Service Experts.

 

  • Confirm your thermostat is set to “heat.”

It may sound laughable, but we get busy and life happens, so it can be easy to ignore the simple fixes. Neglecting to switch over the thermostat can make you think you need furnace repair when really you can fix the problem with a literal flip of the switch!

  • Check your furnace switch.

Speaking of switches, make sure your furnace switch is on the up, or “on” position. Like we said, an easy miss, especially considering this switch isn’t one you might look at on a regular basis. Most systems have built-in delays so be patient when you turn your furnace on and give it a few minutes to get going before panicking about contacting our furnace repair man.

  • Swap your furnace air filter.

You should change your home’s air filters at least every three months to help your system run more efficiently and postpone any furnace repair work. An unclean air filter is one of the most typical reasons for poor performance in furnaces, and they can also be a breeding ground for illness causing microbes and cause you and your loved ones to become sick. Swap your filter to keep both your furnace and your loved ones healthy.

  • Check the circuit breaker.

Make sure your circuit breaker (the one that controls your furnace) is in the “off” position and not the middle. If the breaker has been moved to the middle for some reason, move the breaker to “off” and then push it back to the “on” position.

Furnace repairs get to be expensive, so avoid a future issue altogether with ongoing maintenance from Knochelmann Service Experts. However, if you ever do need furnace repair, we are available 24/7/365 to service all your heating needs.
