Keeping the home comfortable in the middle of winter can be a challenge when the furnace is not working efficiently. Although you can avoid a lot of issues from routinely scheduled maintenance services and your own care, repairs are still necessary. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning would like to share a few things you can try before calling professional assistance and these tips listed below.
Should the furnace stop producing the heat, start by checking the battery on the thermostat. Particularly so with standard thermostats, replacing the battery often does the trick to get the furnace in gear. If the battery is not the issue and should the blower fan doesn’t turn off or the furnace cycles too frequently, check the thermostat’s setting to make sure it’s on Heat mode. Keep in mind that the fan will run continuously if the fan’s setting is set to On, Low, Medium, or High. In the event the furnace is seemingly not producing enough heat. Inspect the temperature in the room and ensure the thermostat is set higher.
Change Furnace Air Filters
Check the air filters next if the thermostats are in working order. Most homeowners are guilty of neglecting to change or clean the filters. Depending on how busy the household is, filters should be changed or cleaned every 4-12 weeks. If the furnace is not up to par, check the filter and tend to it if it is full. Be sure to set a reminder to check the filters once a month and if they do not need replacing check on them weekly thereafter until they do, make a not and do this procedure 3 times; this will give you the general average of how often you need to treat the air filters.
Furnace Ignition Won’t Light
The result of clogged components or faulty electrical components lead to ignition problems and this issue should be handled by experienced professionals.
Mechanical Furnace Problems
Mechanical failure, generally due to worn parts, are repairs better suited for the professionals.
Natural Gas or Propane Furnace Issues
The gas feed or valve because of a malfunction with the gas pressure regulator are fairly common issues that a professional can remedy, for safety do not attempt to repair yourself.
Tripped Circuit Breaker
If the thermostat’s screen is blank or the furnace stops working, check if the circuit breaker tripped or blew a fuse as well as ensure the power cord is plugged into an outlet tight and secure.
Preferably at the end of summer or early fall, schedule a tune-up at least once year. Potential issues are spotted, worn parts, loose hardware is tightened, everything is properly lubed, and cleaned during professional maintenance, among other tasks. This reduces furnace repairs, avoids catastrophic breakdowns, and keeps the furnace in working order.
