Remember those frigid mornings where you procrastinate to get out of bed because it’s so cold? There’s a way to dodge the dysfunction that can come with a broken down furnace. When you schedule routine furnace service, you’re not only taking care of any immediate needs that your system depends upon, but you’re helping to more than likely shrink the chance that your furnace will break down in the future.
Although laying in a comfortable bed all day sounds like a fabulous idea, it is not ideal when you have dogs to walk, kids to get ready for school and work to complete.

Here are a few simple things you can check on your furnace before you contact us:
- Flip of a switch – The power moving to your furnace is disciplined 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 usually run on timed delays, so it may take a couple minutes for it to start up after flipping the switch.
- Heat it up – Long story short, verify your heat is turned on. There are pros and cons to setting your fan to either ‘on’ or ‘auto’ through the cold weather. 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 neat home. Furnace filters protect your home from harmful particles in air flow and also alter your furnace’s efficiency. To get the most out of your system, we advocate replacing your filter every three months.
- Circuit breaker – For one reason or another, there’s a possibility that the breaker controlling power to your furnace could have been tripped. View your circuit breaker panel and see if the switch has been flipped. If it has, cycle it by turning it off and then back on. It could take a couple times for your system to wake up 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 well. However, these simple tips can help you decipher the issue is before calling in the experts. Give us a call at 716-427-6807 or make an appointment online.
