The season of spring may have arrived but in Sharonville it’s not all warm and cozy outside. Your furnace has been going for months trying 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 shut down, you may be in need of a furnace repair. If you notice an intense gas smell, you almost certainly need furnace repair work and you should call Knochelmann Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning promptly.
Before you decide that you need a furnace repair technician, check out these tips from Knochelmann Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.
- Confirm your thermostat has been changed to “heat.”
It may sound laughable, but we are always running and life happens, so sometimes it’s easy to ignore the simple fixes. Neglecting to switch over the thermostat can make you think you need furnace repair when really you can resolve 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 daily. 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 around 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 decreased 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. Change 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 could be costly, so avoid a future issue altogether with ongoing maintenance from Knochelmann Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. However, if you are ever in need of furnace repair, we are available 24/7/365 to provide all your heating needs.
