We are getting through the last of the weeks of winter but we still are relying on our furnaces, especially during cool nights. There’s not a lot that is worse than going to bed at night and realizing your furnace won’t start up. If you find yourself in this situation, here are a couple things you can check yourself prior to calling Stallion Heating Plumbing Air Conditioning.
Check Air Filters
You should swap out standard air filters each month. If you fail to do so, they can end up clogged, obstructing air flow and causing your furnace to malfunction.
Check Your Thermostat
See if turning the temperature up a few degrees will get the furnace to turn on. If the current room temperature is higher than the thermostat, the heating system won’t turn on. Also, confirm the system switch is on “heat” or “auto.”
Check the Power
It may seem ridiculous, but verify the power switch next to the heating system is “On.” Even gas furnaces use electricity so make sure the breaker has not tripped and that the power switch has not been accidently flipped to the “Off” position.
If you inspect all these things and your heating equipment will still not turn on, give Stallion Heating Plumbing Air Conditioning a call at 215-278-9690 and we’ll come out and get you heating again as soon as possible.
