If 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.
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 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.
