Furnace

Want to avoid a costly furnace repair? Here are a few simple tips for maintaining your furnace:

  • Change HVAC filter every one-three months
  • Maintain a three-foot clearance around your furnace
  • Have an annual inspection of your furnace by a certified technician

My furnace is:

Not coming on at all

  • Check that your thermostat is set to heat and that the temperature is set higher than the room temperature.
  • Check to make sure your circuit breaker wasn’t tripped.

Not heating very well, not warm enough

  • Check that the thermostat is set at your usual setting.
  • Check to make sure you have a clean filter in the unit.

Leaking water on floor

Be sure to check nearby sources, such as a floor drain, freezer or humidifier. If the water is coming from the furnace, it is best to have a professional look at it.
