Springtime may technically be here but in Daytona Beach it’s not all warm and snug outside. Your furnace has been running for months striving to keep your home comfortable, so now is the time to show your furnace some affection. If you hear weird noises or the heating system has shut down, you may be in need of a furnace repair. If you notice an intense gas smell, you almost definitely need furnace repair work and you should call All American Air Service Experts promptly.
Before you assume that you need a furnace repair technician, read these tips from All American Air Service Experts.
- Confirm your thermostat is switched to “heat.”
It may sound ridiculous, but we are always running and life happens, so sometimes it’s easy to miss the simple fixes. Forgetting to change over the thermostat can make you believe you need furnace repair when really you can remedy the problem with a literal flip of the switch!
- Check your furnace switch.
Speaking of switches, make sure your furnace switch is on the up, or “on” position. Again, an easy miss, especially considering this switch isn’t one you might look at usually. Most systems have built-in delays so give it a few minutes for your furnace to get going before panicking about contacting our furnace repair man.
- Replace your furnace air filter.
You should change your home’s air filters no less than every three months to help your heating system run more efficiently and postpone any furnace repair work. A dirty air filter is one of the most common reasons for decreased performance in furnaces, and they can also be a breeding ground for germs and cause you and your family to become sick. Replace your filter to keep both your furnace and your loved ones healthy.
- Check the circuit breaker.
Confirm that your circuit breaker that controls your heating system is in the “off” position. If it ends up in the middle position, switch the breaker to the “off” position and then switch back to the “on” position.
Furnace repairs can get expensive, so avoid a potential issue altogether with ongoing maintenance from All American Air Service Experts. However, if you ever do need furnace repair, we are available 24/7/365 to service all your heating needs.
