One of the most critical parts of the winter is staying cozy and warm. Of course, staying comfortable is vital throughout the year, but during the chilly season it is even more essential. Winters in Tomball are erratic and the coldest days can often pop up on us, sometimes when your furnace is not ready. So, before you call in a specialized technician, here are a few things you can examine first:
- Check your filter – unclean filters are one of the most universal causes of unexpected furnace failures. Air has a more challenging time floating through filters once they are grimy or dirty, causing the system to shut off on some occasions. The older the furnace, the more difficult it might be to notice the problem, while newer furnaces are meant to pick up on clogged and dirty filters before further problems arise. Swapping furnace filters every month or so can ward off these issues and keep you comfortable.
- See if your batteries are weak or dead – keep incessant tabs on your thermostat batteries to guarantee that there isn’t a flashing low battery light or indicator on your thermostat. If there is, it’s time to switch out the batteries on your thermostat.
- Ensure that your thermostat is set to “heat” – it can be easy to overlook minor things like the settings of your thermostat. Insure this important step, especially if there was a relevant spike in temperature that may have caused you to turn off the “heat” setting.
- Check your switches – in your home’s circuit breaker panel, find 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 spots, cycle the breaker to Off and then reset it to On.
- The switch that looks like a light switch should also be in the On, or Up, spot. It can easily be mistaken for a real light switch, which is why it is frequently the issue with furnace troubleshooting. Once it’s back On, the system will only require a few minutes to reboot.
Working through these steps is a simple and effective way of ensuring the productivity of your furnace before you set-up a call to your Tomball professional.
