DIY Furnace Troubleshooting

Heating

One of the most critical parts of the winter is staying snug and warm. Of course, staying comfortable is vital throughout the year, but during the chilly season it is even more crucial. Winters in Englewood are always changing and the chilliest days can often spring up on us, sometimes when your furnace is unprepared. So, before you find an expert technician, here are a few things you can check first:

  1. Check your filter – grimy filters are one of the most widespread causes of unforeseen furnace failures. Air has a more challenging time traveling through filters once they are dusty or dirty, causing the system to shut off sometimes. The older the furnace, the harder it might be to notice the problem, while newer furnaces are designed to find clogged and dirty filters before further problems arise. Changing furnace filters every month or so can ward off these issues and keep you comfy.
  2. See if your batteries are weak or dead – keep incessant tabs on your thermostat batteries to guarantee that there isn’t a flashing low battery light or indicator on your thermostat. If there is, it’s time to switch out the batteries on your thermostat.
  3. Ensure that your thermostat is set to “heat” – it can be easy to neglect minor things like the settings of your thermostat. Verify this crucial step, especially if there was a new increase in temperature that may have caused you to turn off the “heat” setting.
  4. Check your switches – in your home’s circuit breaker panel, locate the breakers that operate your furnace:
    1. [Ensure|Guarantee|Confirm]48] that the switch is in the On side. If it is Off or in the middle of the two spots, turn the breaker to Off and then reset it to On.
    2. The switch that seems like a light switch should also be in the On, or Up, side. It can easily be mistaken for a real light switch, which is why it is usually the difficulty with furnace troubleshooting. Once it’s back On, the system will only need a few minutes to reboot.

Going through these steps is an easy and effective way of confirming the productivity of your furnace before you make a call to your Englewood expert. If there are still problems after you have gone through these steps, you will have a much better idea on how to notify your [[technicians|specialists|experts}69] on what the trouble might be.
