The last thing one would want on a cold winter day is a furnace problem. Furnace problems come unannounced, and there’s nothing much that you can do to prevent them completely, unfortunately. Calling an expert for furnace repair in Las Vegas or trying to fix the issue on your own are your only options. Today, we at Air Supply Air Conditioning & Heating would like to discuss the things you can do if your furnace is acting up before you call a pro.
Inspect the Gas Valve
Chances are that your system has run out of gas, or the gas valve is shut off if your gas furnace doesn’t ignite. Make sure it is turned on after you locate the gas valve. Schedule an appointment for furnace repair in if everything seems to be working fine and there’s no issue with the gas valve.
Clean or Replace Air Filters
One of the most common issues people faces is reduced airflow. Something might be restricting the airflow if you notice that there’s no heat coming from the registers, though they both seem to work fine. Turn off your furnace and check if your air filter is clogged or dirty in that case. You can locate the air filter next to the cold air return duct. To see if that works, clean the filter or replace it. There could be something that’s clogging the duct if in the event that doesn’t work. This would require the skill of a pro.
Ensure the Thermostat is Working Operational
Check the thermostat if your furnace is not heating your home or it’s not running at all. If required, change the batteries. Ensure the thermostat is set to “heat”, and the fan is set to “auto.” Also, clean it using a soft brush to get rid of the dust and dirt that would have settled on it over time if you have an electromechanical thermostat. It’s time to check the furnace switch and electrical panel if that also doesn’t work.
Check the Furnace Switch
The issue may be as small as a tripped breaker or a furnace switch that got switched off accidentally in some cases. To see if the furnace breaker is tripped, check the breaker box. Inspect the furnace switch to see if it’s powered on as well. You can locate the furnace switch on the side of the furnace. You should immediately call a technician for HVAC repair if your furnace breaker is tripping continuously.
