4 Important Points About Furnace Repair
Make sure your thermostat is set to “heat”
There are a lot of things to keep in mind when seasons change, so it’s understandable that you could forget to switch your thermostat over to “heat.” Double check to make sure yours is set correctly.
Check your furnace switch
Your furnace switch looks like a normal light switch and should be in the Up, or On, position. Once On, your furnace should turn on in a couple minutes as most systems utilize built-in delays.
Change your furnace filter
Dirty filters are one of the most common reasons for inefficient furnace performance. Be sure you’re changing your filter every one to three months for optimal performance.
Check the circuit breaker
Go to your home’s circuit breaker panel and find the breaker that controls your furnace. Determine if it is in the middle position or the Off position. If it is, cycle the breaker to Off and reset it to the On position.
