We are making our way through the last few weeks of winter but we still have to have our furnaces, especially during cool nights. Nothing is worse than going to bed at night just to realize your furnace won’t turn on. If you find yourself in this situation, here are a couple things you can check yourself before calling Midway Services.
Check Air Filters
You should change standard air filters every 30 days. If you don’t, they can become clogged, restricting air flow and causing your furnace to malfunction.
Check Your Thermostat
Try turning the temperature up a few degrees to get the furnace to kick on. If the current room temperature is higher than the thermostat, the furnace won’t kick on. Also, make sure the system switch is on “heat” or “auto.”
Check the Power
It may seem obvious, but make sure the power switch next to the heating equipment is “On.” Even gas furnaces use electricity so make sure the breaker has not tripped and that the power switch wasn’t accidently moved to the “Off” position.
If you check all these things and your heating equipment will still not turn on, give Midway Services a call at 727-219-2471 and we’ll come out and get you taken care of as soon as possible.
