Broken furnace – no heat… here’s a few things to try before calling us!
Is there power to thermostat? Check the batteries and replace if necessary.
Check that your thermostat is set to HEAT and the temperature setting is higher than the current temperature in your home.
Turn the Fan to ON to test if there is power to the furnace. If nothing happens, check breakers, fuses and power switches.
Check that gas supply is in the ON position.
Check your filter. Is it due for a change? They should be changed monthly to ensure good air flow and operation.
Ensure the front panel on your furnace is closed properly, if not the furnace will not come on.
If you are getting some heat, check registers for air flow. Is there furniture or items blocking air flow?
Is your outdoor vent blocked? Sometimes a snowstorm will cause a blockage of the outdoor vent, it may be as simple as clearing the snow away.
