→Check your furnace filter.
Is your furnace turning on but not blowing heat as hard as normal? The culprit could be a
dirty air filter. Air filters trap dust, dirt, and debris like hair, which, if not changed out, can
restrict or block airflow, overheating the heat exchanger and preventing your furnace from working as it should.
The Fix. Just purchase a new filter from the hardware store and follow the instructions in your
owner’s manual to make the switch.
→ Look at your thermostat.
Your thermostat is the master control of your heating and cooling system.It may sound silly, but is your thermostat set to the proper function? Is your display blank?
The fix. When your thermostat is working as it should, the solution could be as simple as
changing the batteries. When the batteries run low or die, the display will go blank and the
thermostat will no longer be able to operate your system.
→ Is your furnace on? Did you trip your breaker?
While you might roll your eyes on this question, it needs to be asked. If
repairs or maintenance work was recently performed, and your furnace is not working,
you may want to check to make sure that it was turned back on.
The fix. All furnaces have a primary power switch. Look for a standard wall switch on or near
the furnace and check to see if it’s in the “on” or “off” position. You may also want to check to
make sure your circuit breaker is turned “on.” And a final troubleshooting checkpoint,
the front panel covering of the blower motor should be securely fastened. Under it, you’ll find a push-in switch, which needs to be fully depressed for your furnace to turn “on.”
