Common Furnace Problems

There are several problems you may encounter with your furnace, including:

  • Dirty Air Filters: Over time, dust and dirt can clog the air filters in your furnace. Clogged air filters decrease your home’s air quality and can become a fire hazard. To check your air filter, turn your thermostat and furnace switch off. Our technicians can inspect your furnace’s filters during a routine inspection to make sure that they are clean.
  • Thermostat Issues: Sometimes, if your thermostat is not working, it may be dusty or may require fresh batteries. Ensure that your thermostat is on the heat setting. If your thermostat is not installed properly, it may cause reading problems. Call us and we will ensure that the wiring for your thermostat is correct.
  • Furnace Switch and Electrical Panel Not Working: Check the furnace switch to see if it is off or on. You can check the fuse box if the furnace switch is on to see if there is a problem with the power. When resetting the breaker, switch it fully off and then on again. Contact us if resetting your furnace switch or breaker does not turn the furnace on.
