Here’s What to Do When Your Furnace Won’t Ignite

We are trudging through the last of the weeks of winter but we still need our furnaces, especially during cool nights. There’s not a lot that is worse than laying down at night just to realize your furnace won’t turn on. If you find yourself in this situation, here are a few things you can check yourself before calling Stevenson Service Experts. 

Check Air Filters 

You should change standard air filters each month. If you don’t, they can end up clogged, restricting air flow and resulting in a furnace malfunction. 

Check Your Thermostat 

Start by turning the thermostat up a few degrees to get the furnace to turn on. If the actual 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 silly, but confirm the power switch next to the heating system is “On.” Even gas heating equipment uses electricity so confirm the breaker has not tripped and that the power switch wasn’t accidently flipped to the “Off” position. 

If you review all these things and your heating system will still not turn on, give Stevenson Service Experts a call at 614-334-3192 and we’ll come out and get you taken care of as soon as possible.
