Checking The Furnace


The furnace in your home is a vital element for making sure there is heat for your family. If you think that there might be something wrong with the unit, you can contact a company like Cranberry Township furnace services. Someone can come to your home to examine the furnace to see what might be wrong, or you can try to troubleshoot the unit on your own before calling.

After you turn up the temperature to make your furnace come on, listen to make sure the unit is working. If you don't hear the unit come on, then you know that there might be an issue. Examine the filter to make sure it's not dirty as this can hinder the proper function of the furnace. Most companies will change the filter when your unit is serviced so that you don't have to remember. If the furnace doesn't come on after about 30 minutes, then try turning the entire unit off and back on after about 10 minutes. Make sure the batteries are working in the thermostat, then reset the unit. Look at the vents to make sure there is proper airflow. The fuses might be bad as well if the furnace still isn't working.
