Diagnosing Furnace Problems

There are some simple steps consumers can take to diagnose furnace problems to eliminate the need for a service call.

-While it sounds like a no-brainer, make sure the thermostat is on the heat setting instead of the auto or cool setting. The temperature also needs to be set a few degrees higher than the temperature in the room. If it isn't, the thermostat will have no reason to come on.

-There are some simple electrical problems that you can easily troubleshoot. Make sure the power switch on the furnace is in the on position. If it is on, there could be a tripped circuit breaker in the service panel box. If the switch is on off, just move it to the on position to restore power.

-If the motor has overheated, the furnace will shut down. Most heating systems have an overload reset button. Give the unit time to cool down, and then press the red reset button. If the system does not reset within 60 seconds, call us for a service visit.

-You can also make sure that the fuel supply is open to the furnace. Make sure the gas valve is turned all the way to the open position. For a liquid propane furnace, make sure the tank isn't too low or empty. The gauge is attached to the tank and resembles a round dial.
