4 Things to Check Before Calling for Heat Repair

Is your home not heating like it should? Furnace problems are no fun. Here at All in One, we want to help you avoid a potentially unnecessary heat repair service call by offering a few simple tips to try first.

1. Check the Thermostat

There are two main things you want to look into involving the thermostat. The fist aspect you’ll want to check: is the thermostat set in the HEAT position? If yes, move on to check that the temperature setting is set HIGHER than the temperature of the room. Remember, if the room is warmer than the heat setting, the furnace will not turn on.

2. Check the Power Source

Make sure power is getting to your furnace by turning the fan setting to “ON”. If nothing happens, check your breakers at the electrical panel and ensure these are in the proper position and have not been tripped.

3. Check the Air Flow at Vents

Go to each air return and register to make sure they are open and there are no blockages. Common complications involve furniture positioned in front of returns. Make sure these are also clear of drapes and blankets.

4. Check Your Filters

Be honest. When was the last time you changed your air filter? For peak performance, you should really change air filters once a month. Consider changing them ore frequently if you have pets or if someone in your family suffers from allergies. The more dust and contaminants trapped in your filter/s, the harder your HVAC system has to work. This can lead to system strain and even breakdowns.
