The season of spring may have arrived but in Fort Worth it’s not all warm and comfy outside. Your furnace has been going for months trying to keep your home comfortable, so now is the time to make sure you’re giving your furnace some love. If you hear funny noises or the heating system has stopped operating, you may be in need of a furnace repair. If you notice an intense gas smell, you almost surely need furnace repair work and you should call Calverley Service Experts straightaway.
Before you assume that you need a furnace repair technician, review these tips from Calverley Service Experts.
- Make sure your thermostat is switched to “heat.”
It may sound obvious, but we get busy and life happens, so it can be easy to miss the simple fixes. Neglecting to switch over the thermostat can make you think you need furnace repair and installation when really you can remedy the problem with a literal flip of the switch!
- Check your furnace switch.
Since we’re talking about switches, make sure your furnace switch is in the up, or “on” position. As before, an easy miss, especially when you remember this switch isn’t one you might look at frequently. Most furnaces have built-in delays so give it a few minutes for your furnace to get going before panicking about contacting our furnace repair man.
- Swap your furnace air filter.
You should replace your home’s air filters no less than every three months to help your furnace run more efficiently and prolong any furnace repair work. A dirty air filter is one of the most common reasons for poor performance in furnaces, and they can also be a breeding ground for germs and cause you and your family to become sick. Change your filter to keep both your furnace and your loved ones healthy. You could also schedule seasonal maintenance with Calverley and have a thorough furnace cleaning as part of your tune-up.
- Check the circuit breaker.
Check your circuit breaker panel to see if the breaker that controls your furnace is in the middle position or the “off” position. If the breaker has ended up in the middle position, cycle the breaker to “off” and then reset it to the “on” position.
Furnace repairs get to be costly, so avoid a future issue altogether with regular maintenance from Calverley Service Experts. However, if you are needing furnace repair, we are available 24/7/365 to help you with all your heating needs.
