DIY Furnace Troubleshooting

One of the most critical parts of the winter is staying comfortable and warm. Of course, staying comfortable is important throughout the year, but during the chilly season it is even more crucial. Winters in Huntsville are always changing and the coldest days can often appear on us, sometimes when your furnace is not ready. So, before you ask a professional technician, here are a few things you can check first:

  1. Check your filter – dirty filters are one of the most common causes of unexpected furnace failures. Air has a more challenging time floating through filters once they are dusty or dirty, causing the system to shut down sometimes. The older the furnace, the trickier it might be to notice the problem, while newer furnaces are meant to pick up on clogged and dirty filters before further problems arise. Changing furnace filters every month or so can counteract these troubles and keep you comfortable.
  2. See if your batteries are weak or dead – keep incessant tabs on your thermostat batteries to guarantee that there isn’t a flashing low battery light or sign on your thermostat. If there is, it’s time to swap out the batteries on your thermostat.
  3. Ensure that your thermostat is set to “heat” – it can be easy to neglect little things like the settings of your thermostat. Double-check this vital step, especially if there was a relevant rise in temperature that may have caused you to turn off the “heat” setting.
  4. Check your switches – in your home’s circuit breaker panel, find the breakers that control your furnace:
    1. [Ensure|Guarantee|Confirm]48] that the switch is in the On spot. If it is Off or in the middle of the two sides, cycle the breaker to Off and then reset it to On.
    2. The switch that seems like a light switch should also be in the On, or Up, side. It can often be confused as a real light switch, which is why it is frequently the difficulty with furnace troubleshooting. Once it’s back On, the system will only need a few minutes to reboot.

Going through these steps is a simple and effective way of confirming the effectiveness of your furnace before you make a call to your Huntsville expert.
