4 Tips for Furnace Repair

April 15, 2016

Spring may have sprung but in San Antonio it’s not all warm and cozy outside. Your furnace has been going for months striving to keep the inside of your home comfortable, so now is the time to make sure you’re giving your furnace some TLC. If you hear abnormal noises or the heating system has shut down, you may be in need of a furnace repair. If you notice a strong gas smell, you almost certainly need furnace repair work and you should call Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air, A Service Experts Company immediately.

Before you jump to the conclusion that you need a furnace repair technician, read these tips from Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air, A Service Experts Company.

 

  • Confirm your thermostat is set to “heat.”

It may sound crazy, but we get busy and life happens, so it can be easy to miss the simple fixes. Not remembering to move over the thermostat can make you think you need furnace repair when really you can remedy the problem with a literal flip of the switch!

  • Check your furnace switch.

On the topic of switches, make sure your furnace switch is moved to the up, or “on” position. Like we said, an easy miss, especially when you remember this switch isn’t one you might look at daily. Most units have built-in delays so give it a few minutes for your furnace to get going before panicking about calling our furnace repair man.

  • Swap your furnace air filter.

You should replace your home’s air filters around every three months to help your furnace run more efficiently and put off any furnace repair work. An unclean air filter is one of the most typical reasons for poor performance in furnaces, and they can also be a breeding ground for illness causing microbes and cause you and your loved ones to become sick. Change your filter to keep both your furnace and your family healthy.

  • Check the circuit breaker.

Confirm that your circuit breaker that controls your heating system is in the “off” position. If it ends up in the middle position, switch the breaker to the “off” position and then switch back to the “on” position.

Furnace repairs can get pricey, so avoid a potential issue altogether with seasonal maintenance from Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air, A Service Experts Company. However, if you ever do need furnace repair, we are available 24/7/365 to help you with all your heating needs.
