Furnaces have a lot of mechanical and electrical components in order to provide the furnace repair residents require. Like any piece of equipment, issues could arise causing you to try to decipher what is wrong. Troubleshooting your furnace should be done correctly. You may want to follow these steps to troubleshoot your furnace
- Make sure your thermostat is set to the “Heat” setting. Also, make sure your thermostat is set to a degree that should start the heating process. Try 5-10 degrees over the room temperature reading for troubleshooting.
- If your thermostat uses batteries, try replacing them with brand new ones. If you have an electrical thermostat, make sure you have power by switching the thermostat to the fan setting. If the fan comes on, you know the thermostat has power and it is not the cause of your problem.
- Check your filters and make sure they are clean. Some cheaper filters use oil to catch dirt, dust, and debris and need to be replaced once full.
- Check the circuit breaker for your furnace and make sure the fuse is not burned out or tripped.
- Check the switch on your furnace unit and make sure it is in the “On” position.
