Hal Mechanical is here to share some furnace troubleshooting tips that will hopefully have your furnace back up and running in no time at all.
How Do You Fix a Furnace that is Not Heating?
When you are experiencing heating issues, it is only normal to want to call in a team of professionals to figure out what is going on. However, you can save yourself time and money by trying a few things yourself that might be a quick fix to your problem.
– Check the Thermostat: There might be a problem with your thermostat. If this is the case, you need to make sure the thermostat it getting power whether from batteries or your home. Then you need to make sure that the settings are right, and the heat is turned on. If this is the problem, you will be back up and running in no time at all.
– Reset Your Circuit Breaker: You also need to make sure your furnace is getting power. Sometimes, the circuit breaker that takes power to the furnace can be tripped and need to be reset. Checking your breaker box for a breaker that has been tripped is the next step you should take.
– Change the Filter: If it has been a while since you last changed the filter in your furnace, that might be the problem as well. A dirty furnace doesn’t allow the right amount of air to circulate through your system and can cause your furnace to overheat. Changing your filter should be the next thing that you should do.
– Check the Power Switch: All furnaces have a power switch near them. This often resembles a light switch. Make sure it hasn’t been bumped or turned off somehow as this will keep your furnace from being able to turn on.
– Close the Furnace Door: There is a safety switch on the door of your furnace that you should check as well. If the furnace door isn’t shut tight enough, it might not be pushing in that button well enough. This will cause the furnace to not turn on.
