When you schedule routine furnace service, you’re not only taking care of any necessary needs that your system needs, but you’re helping to more than likely shrink 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 visit us: Flip of a switch – The power going to your furnace is controlled by the furnace switch, which is identical to a light switch. There’s a chance that it could have been flipped off on accident. Double check to make sure it’s flipped on. Furnaces generally 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, make sure your heat is turned on. There are pros and cons to setting your fan to either ‘on’ or ‘auto’ through the winter. Weigh your options, the temperature of your home and how much you want to spend on your energy bill before you change the furnace setting. Don’t forget the filter – Your furnace filter is an important piece to maintain a secure and clean home. Furnace filters shield your home from harmful particles in air flow and also influence your furnace’s performance. To get the most out of your system, we advocate switching your filter every three months. Circuit breaker – For one reason or another, there’s a chance that the breaker controlling power to your furnace could have been tripped. Analyze your circuit breaker panel and see if the switch has been shifted. If it has, cycle it by turning it off and then back on. It could take a couple minutes for your system to start 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 routine 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 859-905-0834 or make an appointment online.
