The season of spring may have arrived but in Jackson it’s not all warm and comfy outside. Your furnace has been working for months striving to keep the inside of your home comfortable, so now is the time to show your furnace some love. If you hear funny noises or the heating system has turned itself off, you may be in need of a furnace repair. If you notice an intense gas smell, you almost surely need furnace repair work and you should call Comfortech Service Experts immediately.
Before you decide that you need a furnace repair technician, read these tips from Comfortech Service Experts .
- Make sure your thermostat is switched to “heat.”
It may sound laughable, but we get busy and life happens, so it can be easy to overlook the simple fixes. Neglecting to change over the thermostat can make you believe you need furnace repair and installation when really you can fix the problem with a literal flip of the switch!
- Check your furnace switch.
Since we’re talking about switches, make sure your furnace switch is on the up, or “on” position. Again, an easy miss, especially when you remember this switch isn’t one you might look at frequently. Most units have built-in delays so make sure when you turn on your furnace you give it a few minutes to get going before panicking about calling our furnace repair man.
- Replace your furnace air filter.
You should change your home’s air filters around every three months to help your system run more efficiently and prolong any furnace repair work. A filthy air filter is one of the most recurrent reasons for decreased performance in furnaces, and they can also be a breeding ground for germs and cause you and your loved ones to become sick. Change your filter to keep both your furnace and your family healthy. You can also schedule seasonal maintenance with Comfortech and have a thorough furnace cleaning as part of your tune up.
- Check the circuit breaker.
Check your circuit breaker panel to see if the breaker that controls your furnace is in the middle position or the “off” position. If the breaker has ended up in the middle position, cycle the breaker to “off” and then reset it to the “on” position.
Furnace repairs get to be expensive, so avoid a potential issue altogether with regular maintenance from Comfortech Service Experts . However, if you ever do need furnace repair, we are available 24/7/365 to help you with all your heating needs.
