If your furnace is not turning on, it could be as simple as your filters! Dirty filters can cause insufficient air flow, so changing your filters regularly (about every 3 months) helps ensure it will turn on when you need it.
Other issues can include a malfunctioning thermostat, an issue with the gas line, or a faulty ignition sensor (pilot light). There could also be issues with furnace itself. After you’ve done all the troubleshooting you know to do, if it’s still not working give us a call! Always remember to check your carbon monoxide alarms, as well, to keep you and your family safe.
Whether you’re having trouble heating your home or your energy bills have been increasing, it may be time for a tune-up. Some common signs that your furnace needs servicing include inadequate heat, strange noises, tripped carbon monoxide detector, or discolored pilot light (it should be blue).
There are many reasons why your furnace could be blowing cold air, and we can all agree it’s a huge headache to deal with! Firstly and most simply, your thermostat could be set to On rather than Auto, so check that first. You will also want to check your air filters before calling a technicians to come out, as dirty filters restrict air flow preventing the unit from kicking on.
Your pilot light could be damaged, the flame detector could be covered in dirt and grime, or your condensate lines could be clogged. There could also be damage to your ductwork, or a low supply of gas to your home. Give us a call if you think any of these could be issue and we’ll be out to assist as soon as possible!
If your furnace breaks down, the first thing you should do is turn off the power to the unit. Then, check the ductwork for any blockages. Next, check the air filters and your thermostat to ensure it is set to Auto. Finally, call a professional furnace repair technician to diagnose and repair the problem.
