Common Things to Check Before Calling Accurate

Check the thermostat. Many thermostats have internal batteries that can fail. A lot of the thermostats that have batteries will display a dead battery symbol on the screen. This is an indication that the battery needs changed out. A dead thermostat battery may prevent the furnace from operating. It is also possible that the thermostat was turned off or the setpoint was adjusted lower than normal. If your home has an older mercury thermostat and you wanted to know more about why there is mercury in this thermostat, check out this blog.

Check the furnace air filter. This is a very common source of furnace trouble. A clogged air filter can cause the furnace to overheat and shut down. Restricting air flow through the furnace can make the furnace components work harder and can lead to parts failures. A shortened furnace life may also result. Maintaining a clean furnace filter will prolong the reliable operation of your furnace. For a standard 1” air filter, it is recommended to check and/or replace the air filter monthly. For some information on what  size air filter is best for your home, refer to this blog.

Make sure the gas is turned on. From time to time we are called about a furnace not working and we show up to find that the gas was turned off. Someone may have turned off the gas valve down at the furnace. Or the little valve handle for the gas valve caught on someone passing by and was closed. In some cases, the gas company may have shut off the gas out at the meter. If other gas operated appliances like a stove or a water heater also have no gas, then the gas may be shut off out at the meter.

Regular Furnace Maintenance

An important step to ensure your furnace keeps running all season long is to schedule annual furnace maintenance. We will come out in the fall to perform a furnace clean and check. This furnace clean & check will make necessary adjustments in the furnace. And we will check the health of the vital parts of the furnace. We can identify when a part is weakening before the part goes out. This will save a costly repair down the road. And may save you from having the furnace fail on the coldest day or weekend of winter. The cost for the furnace clean & check is affordable and the piece of mind is priceless. For information on maintenance items that homeowners can perform to keep their HVAC system running smoothly, refer to this blog. We also offer information on the benefits of home humidification at this blog.

Furnace Upgrades as an Option

An option for older, less reliable furnaces is to upgrade to a new furnace. The newer furnaces are substantially more efficient than your older furnace. Furnace AFUE ratings of 95% and higher are available. They are also much quieter and provide more balanced home heating. The home will be less drafty, the room temperatures will be more uniform, and you will definitely notice the difference on the gas bill. We can provide you with a free estimate on a new furnace. Just call us to schedule a time.
