No one wants to wake up cold in the middle of the night. It can be one thing to pull the covers up, but when the temperature is too much, it could be a result of a poor working furnace. While you may attempt to do a troubleshoot yourself, it is always best to know when it’s time to call in the professionals. Your best bet is to have a maintenance checklist handy, so you can narrow down on what exactly the problem with your furnace could be before you call up a professional to handle the issue. Here are some of the most popular furnace problems that homeowners can experience.
Make Sure Your Thermostat Is On
It may sound incredibly silly, but you might want to check the thermostat to make sure that it is on the “heat” setting. Homeowners need to make sure that the temperature is for at least five degrees above room temperature. For the DIY-er, you can check the battery on the thermostat itself. You may even need to change the batteries on your thermostat to get it to work correctly. If your home’s thermostat happens to run on batteries, then it is imperative that you are constantly changing the batteries at least once a year, or as needed to have a thermostat that works properly throughout the year continuously.
Try Resetting The Home Circuit Breakers
There are a wide array of incredibly minor reasons that a furnace won’t produce heat. You’ll first want to make sure that the thermostat in your home has the “heat” setting indicated. After you’ve checked that, it would benefit you to move the dial up or down a few degrees to check if there is a noticeable difference in the air. If there is no difference, homeowners may want to check to see if the circuit breaker or fuse could be tripped or even worse, blown completely.
Checking that your furnace is adequately working is incredibly essential for any homeowner. Doing some initial checking can be the best way to prevent yourself from calling in the professionals unless you need them.
