We are making our way through the last several weeks of winter but we still need our furnaces, especially during cold nights. Not much is worse than going to bed at night just to find out your furnace won’t turn on. If this happens to you, here are a couple things you can check yourself before calling Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air.
Check Air Filters
You should change standard air filters every 30 days. If you fail to do so, they can become clogged, restricting air flow and causing your furnace to malfunction.
Check Your Thermostat
Try turning the temperature up a few degrees to get the furnace to kick on. If the current room temperature is higher than the thermostat, the furnace won’t run. Also, confirm the system switch is on “heat” or “auto.”
Check the Power
It may seem ridiculous, but confirm the power switch next to the heating system is “On.” Even gas furnaces use electricity so confirm the breaker has not tripped and that the power switch wasn’t accidently moved to the “Off” position.
If you check all these things and your heating system will still not turn on, give Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air a call at 210-404-4233 and we’ll come out and take care of you as soon as possible.
