Inspect Your Thermostat and Furnace Switch
If your furnace isn’t working correctly, you should check if your thermostat has functioning batteries and make sure the furnace switch is on. I know as simple as it sounds this is a very common issue with furnaces. What you don’t want to do is call someone to repair your furnace, find out there wasn’t a problem, and receive a bill. Most furnaces have another switch a “furnace switch.” It’s a power switch that often looks like a regular light switch. The furnace switch is normally located either on the unit or on a wall nearby. Most electricians work before the furnace is installed and that’s why it’s sometimes nearby by not on the furnace. Often the switch is unlabeled making it really easy to accidentally turn your furnace off.
Inspect Your Filter
As a preventative measure, you should keep your filters from being dirty. Otherwise, your furnace may not receive adequate airflow, which could cause it to overheat and stop prematurely. It’s a good idea to maintain your furnace to keep easily preventable issues from bothering you all winter long. Dirty filters also results in poor air quality, this results in health problems such as the common cold, influenza, headaches, allergic reactions, breathing difficulties, fatigue, dizziness and even nausea.
Inspect Furnace Vents
