The Proven Furnace Repair Experts Being distressed about your comfort shouldn’t be something to think about as seasons change and temperatures drop in Cohoes. It’s necessary to remember that even as you transition from using your air conditioner to a furnace, both systems run independently and should be controlled as such so you can avoid AC and furnace repairs.

There are also a few things that you can check yourself prior to calling us, so if you do end up calling, we’ll both be on the same page and know that these small things have already been monitored. Do you have the thermostat set to “heat”? – Once cooler weather finally settles in for good, it can be easy to forget that you need to have your thermostat turned over to “heat.” It happens a lot more often than you’d think, so be sure you double-check your thermostat and its setting. Is the furnace switch on? – Normally on the side of your furnace, the furnace switch looks like a normal light switch and should be flipped up, or on. If it’s not, flip the switch on, and once the built-in time delay period has passed, your furnace will turn back on. The time delay is normally only a couple minutes. Have you changed your furnace filter? – Forgotten about more than people woud like to admit, furnace filters play a large role in the performance and efficiency of your system. There’s also a probability that it could prohibit your furnace from running at all. Be sure to swap your furnace filter out every three months for the best performance. Look at your circuit breaker – Another fundamental piece to check is your circuit breaker. If the breaker switch for your furnace is tripped, you can cycle it off and then back on. Doing so should allow the system to kick back on. If it doesn’t, give us a ring and we can work together to figure out what the complication is. *If you notice a strong gas smell, call Roland J.
