Spring may have sprung but in Mobile it’s not all warm and snug outside. Your furnace has been working for months attempting 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 weird noises or the heating system has turned itself off, you may be in need of a furnace repair. If you notice a strong gas smell, you almost surely need furnace repair work and you should call Climate Control Service Experts immediately.
Before you assume that you need a furnace repair technician, review these tips from Climate Control Service Experts.
- Check that your thermostat is set to “heat.”
It may sound laughable, but we are always running and life happens, so sometimes it’s easy to ignore the simple fixes. Neglecting to change over the thermostat can make you believe you need furnace repair when really you can fix the problem with a literal flip of the switch!
- Check your furnace switch.
On the topic of switches, make sure your furnace switch is on the up, or “on” position. As before, an easy miss, especially considering this switch isn’t one you tend to look at daily. Most furnaces have built-in delays so give it a few minutes for your furnace to get going before panicking about contacting our furnace repair man.
- Swap your furnace air filter.
You should replace your home’s air filters around every three months to help your heating system run more efficiently and put off any furnace repair work. An unclean air filter is one of the most typical reasons for decreased 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 home 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.
