You Notice the Problem

You’re woken up by how cold your home has gotten or settling in for the night when you realize you need a sweater. Even worse, it could be your day off, and you notice the house isn’t warming up. Here are a few things you can check before you make a call for emergency furnace repair.

  • Check The Thermostat – Is it on and set to heat? Is the fan set to on or auto? Is it set higher than the current temperature in the house?
  • Check The Breaker – Gas and Electric furnaces both need electricity to generate heat.
  • Check The Furnace Filter – A clogged filter won’t allow the furnace to blow the heated air. It’s also dangerous and could lead to an emergency furnace repair.
  • Check the GasNOTE: If you smell gas, get out of the house and call 911. If you have a gas furnace, make sure the gas is on. The handle for your gas line should be parallel to the pipe when open.
  • Check the Pilot Light – Another gas furnace issue is the pilot light being out. It’s an easy fix.
