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

February 23, 2017

We are trudging through the last several weeks of winter but we still need our furnaces, especially during cool nights. Nothing is worse than going to bed at night just to realize your furnace won’t kick on. If your furnace won’t turn on, here are a few things you can check yourself prior to calling Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning.

Check Air Filters

You should replace standard air filters each month. If you do not, they can get clogged, obstructing air flow and resulting in your furnace malfunctioning.

Check Your Thermostat

Try turning the temperature up a few degrees to get the furnace to kick on. If the true room temperature is higher than the thermostat, the furnace won’t run. Also, make sure the system switch is on “heat” or “auto.”

Check the Power

It may seem silly, but verify the power switch next to the furnace is “On.” Even gas heating equipment uses electricity so confirm the breaker has not tripped and that the power switch has not been accidently moved to the “Off” position.

If you inspect all these things and your furnace will still not start up, give Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 321-428-7635 and we’ll come out and get you heating again as soon as possible.
