How To Troubleshoot Your Furnace

During the cold winter months, you rely on your heating system to keep you and your family comfortable. If your furnace were to fail at the most inconvenient time of the year, would you know what to do? Below are some tips that will help you troubleshoot the issue.

Change the Furnace Filter
When an air filter is dirty, it limits the airflow to the furnace. In return, this forces your furnace to work harder and therefore waste energy. Changing your furnace’s air filter during the winter months will help your furnace operate at peak efficiency.

Inspect the Thermostat
Did you know that the thermostat controls your furnace? That’s why it is important to thoroughly inspect the thermostat. It is imperative to change the batteries in your thermostat each winter.

Check the Power Switch
Sometimes, homeowners inadvertently turn off the switch that powers the furnace. This simple mistake could be the reason why your furnace is not generating any heat. Make sure that the power switch for the furnace is in the on position.
