Furnace Not Working: Try These Four Troubleshooting Furnace Tips
Here are four common issues that can cause your furnace to stop working, and they don’t necessarily require a heating expert’s services. You can decide if you need Thornton furnace repair.
Furnace Filters – Do you need Furnace Repair?
Is your furnace firing up but not blowing heat as hard as usual?
Dirty air filters are often the culprit behind an inefficiently performing furnace.
That’s because air filters trap dust, dirt, and debris like hair, which over time can restrict or block vital airflow, overheating the heat exchanger and preventing your furnace from working as it should.
Filters should be changed as recommended by your equipment manufacturer manual.
To fix the issue, purchase a new filter from your local discount or hardware store and follow your owner’s manual instructions to make the switch.
Thermostat – Do you need Furnace Repair?
It may sound effortless, but the source of many a malfunctioning furnace is, in fact, the thermostat, which is the control center of your heating system.
To troubleshoot, set your thermostat to heat instead of cool, then set it to 5 degrees above room temperature and see if the furnace comes on.
If it’s not working as it should, the problem could be as simple and straightforward as the thermostat’s batteries.
When the batteries die, the display will go blank, and the thermostat will no longer be able to operate your heating and cooling system.
An excellent way to avoid this issue is to replace the batteries every year.
Furnace Power – Do you need Furnace Repair?
We hate to ask but could the problem be that your furnace isn’t turned on? It sounds like a no-brainer, but if repairs or maintenance work were recently performed on your furnace and it’s not working for some reason, you may want to check to ensure that it was turned back on.
All furnaces have a basic power switch. Look for a standard wall switch on or near the furnace and check if it’s in the on or off position.
You may also want to check your circuit breaker or fuse for the furnace, which may have been turned off.
Air Ducts – Do you need Furnace Repair?
Have you noticed cold spots in your home even when hot air is coming out of the air vents?
The problem could be the air ducts. Check for handles that protrude from the ducts.
These are dampers that control airflow. You’ll want to make sure they’re fully open.
If some entire rooms are still cold, you may have a problem with leaking ducts or incorrectly designed ducts.
This is a serious problem that can increase your energy bill. To find blocked or leaky ducts that could be restricting airflow, take a look at any ducts you can actually access.
And always make sure your vents aren’t being blocked by furniture or covered by objects in your home, like drapes, plants, or wall art.
If you’ve checked all of the above and your furnace still isn’t working, then it’s definitely time to call a qualified HVAC repair technician. The techs at Prue Air Solutions are experts in furnace repair in Thornton.
Repairing a furnace certainly isn’t one of those projects that most homeowners can DIY.
