Furnace Troubleshooting: What to Do Before Calling for Furnace Repair

You can’t count on the weather in Reeds Spring, but one thing the team at All Seasons Comfort Systems Inc wants you to be able to trust in is your heating and cooling system. Having a cozy home isn’t a seasonal thing, it’s something you expect all year. When your furnace is having problems you may think that means a furnace repair can be looming on the horizon. That may not be the case. If your furnace hasn’t been its usual, dependable self recently, there are some things a homeowner can do before calling in the experts at All Seasons Comfort Systems Inc.

Check the Thermostat

We have had calls where the only thing we did was switch a thermostat from “cool” to “heat”. While setting the thermostat for the season, a homeowner can easily forget to flip the switch, telling your heating and cooling system what you would like it to do.

Something else to look over while you’re at the thermostat is the battery. Almost all digital thermostats have a low battery warning, but if it’s been a while since you’ve changed batteries it may be time for a change. It’s another simple fix that could save you a repair call.

Check the Filter

A dirty air filter can create all sorts of complications. Not only will a dirty filter inhibit your system’s efficiency and stifle air flow, it could also cause an abrupt breakdown. Changing the filter in your heating and cooling system is effortless and it can play a huge role in keeping your system functioning at its best.

Check the Switches

The first switch you’ll want to look at is the breaker for your furnace. It’s often the case that a problem can be as easy to fix as a tripped breaker or blown fuse.

Check the Vents

A typical misconception is that a homeowner should shut the vents in unused rooms. This could actually lead to a furnace repair down the road. Closed vents generate higher pressure throughout your duct system and cause your system to work harder than it needs to.
