We are trudging through the last few weeks of winter but we still are relying on our furnaces, especially during cool nights. Nothing is worse than turning in at night and realizing your furnace won’t start up. If this happens to you, here are some things you can check yourself before calling Eveready Service Experts .
Check Air Filters
You should replace standard air filters every 30 days. If you fail to do so, they can get clogged, restricting 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 furnace won’t run. Also, confirm the system switch is on “heat” or “auto.”
Check the Power
It may seem ridiculous, but confirm the power switch next to the heating system is “On.” Even gas heating equipment uses electricity so confirm the breaker has not tripped and that the power switch wasn’t accidently flipped to the “Off” position.
If you check all these things and your furnace will still not start up, give Eveready Service Experts a call at 804-548-4480 and we’ll come out and take care of you as soon as possible.
