One of the most critical parts of the winter is staying cozy and warm. Of course, staying comfortable is critical throughout the year, but during the chilly season it is even more essential. Winters in East Bernard are unpredictable and the frostiest days can often appear on us, sometimes when your furnace is unprepared. So, before you find an expert technician, here are a few things you can inspect first:
- Check your filter – grimy filters are one of the most common causes of sudden furnace failures. Air has a more difficult time traveling through filters once they are filthy or dirty, causing the system to switch off sometimes. The older the furnace, the trickier it might be to notice the problem, while newer furnaces are created to find clogged and dirty filters before further problems arise. Swapping furnace filters every month or so can ward off these troubles and keep you comfortable.
- See if your batteries are weak or dead – keep constant tabs on your thermostat batteries to make sure that there isn’t a flashing low battery light or sign on your thermostat. If there is, it’s time to replace out the batteries on your thermostat.
- Ensure that your thermostat is set to “heat” – it can be easy to forget small things like the settings of your thermostat. Verify this crucial step, especially if there was a new rise in temperature that may have caused you to turn off the “heat” setting.
- Check your switches – in your home’s circuit breaker panel, discover the breakers that run your furnace:
- [Ensure|Guarantee|Confirm]48] that the switch is in the On spot. If it is Off or in the middle of the two positions, turn the breaker to Off and then reset it to On.
- The switch that seems like a light switch should also be in the On, or Up, spot. It can often be misidentified as a real light switch, which is why it is frequently the difficulty with furnace troubleshooting. Once it’s back On, the system will only require a few minutes to reboot.
Walking through these steps is an easy and effective way of ensuring the productivity of your furnace before you set-up a call to your East Bernard expert.
