We are making our way through the last few weeks of winter but we still need our furnaces, especially during frigid nights. Not much is worse than going to bed at night and realizing your furnace won’t start up. If this happens to you, here are a couple things you can check yourself before your call Komfort Air.
Check Air Filters
You should swap out standard air filters each month. If you fail to do so, they can become clogged, obstructing air flow and resulting in a furnace malfunction.
Check Your Thermostat
See if turning the temperature up a few degrees will get the furnace to turn on. If the actual room temperature is higher than the thermostat, the furnace won’t run. Also, verify the system switch is on “heat” or “auto.”
Check the Power
It may seem silly, but confirm the power switch next to the furnace is “On.” Even gas heating systems use electricity so verify the breaker has not tripped and that the power switch wasn’t accidently moved to the “Off” position.
If you review all these things and your heating system will still not turn on, give Komfort Air a call at 704-705-8135 and we’ll come out and get you heating again as soon as possible.
