Furnace Troubleshooting: What to Do Before Calling for Furnace Repair

You can’t bank on the weather in Kingsville, but one thing the team at Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC wants you to be able to trust in is your heating and cooling system. Having a comfortable home isn’t a seasonal thing, it’s something you expect all year. When your furnace is having complications you may think that means a furnace repair can be looming on the horizon. That may not be the case. If your furnace hasn’t been its usual, stable self as of late, there are a couple of things a homeowner can do before calling in the experts at Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC.

Check the Thermostat

We have been on a job where the only thing we did was switch a thermostat from “cool” to “heat”. While adjusting the thermostat for the season, it’s easy for a homeowner to forget to flip the switch, telling your heating and cooling system what you need it to do.

Another thing to look over while you’re at the thermostat is the battery. Almost all digital thermostats give a low battery warning, but if some time has passed since you’ve changed batteries it may be time for a switch. It’s another painless fix that could save you a repair call.

Check the Filter

A dirty air filter can create all sorts of problems. Not only will a dirty filter inhibit your system’s efficiency and decrease air flow, it could also cause an abrupt breakdown. Changing the filter in your heating and cooling system is effortless and it can play a huge role in keeping your system operating at its best.

Check the Switches

The first switch you’ll want to look at is the breaker for your furnace. Occasionally a problem can be as easy to fix as a tripped breaker or blown fuse.

Check the Vents

A typical misconception is that a homeowner should close the vents in unused rooms. This could actually lead to a furnace repair in the future. Closed vents cause higher pressure within your duct system and cause your system to work harder than it needs to.
