It might sound silly, but the average homeowner might be surprised by how many of our service calls are concluded by the simple flip of a switch or turn of a knob. While this may not represent all thermostat issues, our first suggestion when facing heater issues is to always double-check the settings.
Aside from that, it’s important to check things like batteries, if your thermostat uses them, and your breakers and fuses.
One of the most common causes of sudden furnace issues is related to the filter. Without proper airflow, it becomes impossible for a heater to work at optimal efficiency — and in rare circumstances can even lead to potentially dangerous circumstances. We recommend that you change your filters at least once a year, and in some circumstances, twice.
Pilot Light Problems
First, we must stress, if you are unsure about something when dealing with an issue involving gas, immediately contact a professional. However, issues with the gas and pilot light can be addressed by the homeowner with a little bit of know-how. Your entire heating system depends on this tiny flame, so knowing how to light it in case it goes out can prove to be very beneficial.
Almost every furnace has instructions near the base that tell you the proper procedure for lighting the pilot light, and it’s generally a simple process that only requires a long lighter or match.
We highly suggest that all homeowners that utilize gas learn the locations of all gas shut-off valves. This information can be valuable if you ever smell gas and can’t locate the source.
