Staying relaxed throughout the entire year shouldn’t be something you have to consistently worry about. Even if you’re at the point in the spring or fall where you have to switch between an air conditioner and furnance because of temperature fluctuations, you shouldn’t have to be distressed about your comfort being in jeopardy. On the other hand, you can only really be positive that you won’t have to worry about furnace repair by scheduling routine furnace service.
At Roland J. Down Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning we know that it seems like we’re discussing a lot about air conditioner and furnace service, but it’s through these routine check-ups that we’re able to analyze your system thoroughly and diagnose any potential furnace fixes that need to happen. Plus, you never want to have to mess with a furnace that has gone out in the middle of the most frigid night in winter.
However, if something of that nature would occur, we have professionals available 24/7 to be there whenever you’re in need of a furnace repair. Even if it isn’t the coldest night, these accidents tend to transpire at the most inconvenient times. It’s during these moments that it’s most important to have a group of experts, like those at Roland J. Down Service Experts, you know you can bank on to get your system back up and running so you can go back to being warm.
Not only are our specialists NATE-certified, they have the ability and understanding to get your system up and running again, regardless of the make, model or age of your furnace. If you’ve realized that your furnace doesn’t appear to be working, there are a few things you can look at before you give us a call so we have all of the information we need prior to coming out, including:
- Is the thermostat on “heat”? – It may seem too unmistakable or something that you think you’d never overlook, but it’s more familiar than you may think. As seasons change, make sure you’ve made the switch and your thermostat is set to “heat” for the nearing months.
- Check the furnace switch – Whether intentional or unintentional, it’s possible that your furnace switch is turned off. A furnace switch looks like a usual light switch, and should be flipped up, or in the on position. If it’s off, flip it on and your furnace should start up in a few minutes once the built-in time delay has passed.
- Inspect your furnace filter – This is often the cause of multiple issues when it comes to furnaces. Filters are overlooked and forgotten too often, leaving you with a furnace that isn’t operating as efficiently as it could be. Be sure to swap out your filter every three months for top-quality performance.
- Take a look at your circuit breaker – View your circuit breaker and see if your furnace’s breaker switch has been tripped. Even if it hasn’t you can cycle it by turning it off and back on. If you’re still having concerns, give us a call so we can help determine what the issue may be.
