furnace repair service batavia, furnace repair batavia, furnace restoration bataviaIf you wake up to a freezing bedroom, you may be tempted to pull the covers up and stay in bed. But when you find your slippers and brave the cold, it’s time to investigate. Could this be a simple fix?  Or will you need to call All Seasons heating & Cooling? Whether you have a conventional gas furnace or a high efficiency gas furnace understanding how your furnace/heating system works is important. You need to understand the basic workings of the appliance so you know what to look for when there is something wrong.  Here is a starting point and  some tips.

For Furnace Repair Service In Batavia

Obvious Place to Start

Is the power on? Did someone “flick the switch’ and accidentally disable the system? Be sure that the  thermostat setting is on “heat.” According to  furnace repair pros, roughly a quarter of all service calls could be avoided with easy furnace fixes that cost little or nothing.   Look for a standard wall switch on or near the furnace—all furnaces, no matter what age or type, have one somewhere. Make sure the switch is on “Heat” rather than on “Cool.”

  • Check the temperature setting. Compare the temperature setting to the room temperature. Set the temperature five degrees higher than the room temperature and see if the furnace kicks on.
  • Make sure the program is displaying the right day and time, as well as a.m. and p.m. settings.
  • Trace the thermostat wires back to the furnace to check for breaks, especially if you’ve done any remodeling recently. If you find a break in one of the thin wires, you might need a service call to fix it. 
  • Replace the battery. Some thermostats are wired to the house’s electrical system, while others use batteries. How is yours powered? Sometimes those that use batteries will flash a low-battery symbol when they need a replacement. If you have a power outage with a dead battery, you’ll lose your settings and the thermostat will revert to the default program.
  • Open the thermostat and gently blow out any dust or debris. Make sure it’s level and firmly attached on the wall, and that none of the wires coming into it are loose.
  • If you can’t make the program settings work, you can bypass them altogether. Simply punch in the temperature you want with the up/down control and then press the hold button to switch on the furnace if the thermostat programming is the problem.

Check the circuit breaker or fuse for the furnace as well. Make sure the front panel covering the blower motor is securely fastened—there’s a push-in switch under it that must be fully depressed for the furnace to operate. And if you’ve lost your owner’s manual,  most major-brand manuals are posted on the manufacturer’s website.
