Remember those cold mornings where you procrastinate to get out of bed because it’s so cold? There’s a way to get around the stress that can come with a broken down furnace. When you schedule routine furnace service, you’re not only taking care of any immediate needs that your system needs, but you’re helping to more than likely shrink the chance that your furnace will break down in the future.
Although laying in a comfortable bed all day sounds like a wonderful idea, it is not fitting when you have dogs to walk, kids to get ready for school and work to finish.

Here are a few simple conditions you can check on your furnace before you contact us:
- Flip of a switch – The power going to your furnace is contained by the furnace switch, which looks just like a light switch. There’s a chance that it could have been flipped off on accident. Double check to make sure it’s flipped on. Furnaces most likely run on timed delays, so it may take a couple minutes for it to start up after flipping the switch.
- Heat it up – Long story short, verify your heat is turned on. There are pros and cons to setting your fan to either ‘on’ or ‘auto’ through the winter. Weigh your options, the temperature of your home and how much you want to spend on your energy bill before you decide on the furnace setting.
- Don’t forget the filter – Your furnace filter is an important piece to maintain a protected and fresh home. Furnace filters defend your home from harmful particles in air flow and also alter your furnace’s performance. To receive the most out of your system, we propose replacing your filter every three months.
- Circuit breaker – For one reason or another, there’s a chance that the breaker controlling power to your furnace could have been tripped. Check your circuit breaker panel and see if the switch has been shifted. If it has, cycle it by turning it off and then back on. It could take a couple times for your system to start due to the built-in time delay. If it still isn’t working, give us a call and we can help you figure out what the matter is.
Furnace repair doesn’t have to be stressful. As long as you’re keeping up with routine furnace service, you should be doing just fine. However, these simple tips can help you figure out the issue is before calling in the experts. Give us a call at 484-401-7577 or make an appointment online.
