One of the most critical parts of the winter is staying cozy and warm. Of course, staying comfortable is important throughout the year, but during the chilly season it is even more necessary. Winters in Northglenn are always changing and the frostiest days can often pop up on us, sometimes when your furnace is not ready. So, before you ask a specialized technician, here are a few things you can check first:
- Check your filter – grimy filters are one of the most universal causes of unforeseen furnace failures. Air has a more challenging time passing through filters once they are grimy or dirty, causing the system to shut down on some occasions. The older the furnace, the harder it might be to detect the problem, while newer furnaces are created to pick up on clogged and dirty filters before further troubles arise. Replacing furnace filters every month or so can ward off these problems and keep you comfy.
- See if your batteries are weak or dead – keep incessant tabs on your thermostat batteries to ensure that there isn’t a flashing low battery light or indicator on your thermostat. If there is, it’s time to replace out the batteries on your thermostat.
- Ensure that your thermostat is set to “heat” – it can be easy to forget small things like the settings of your thermostat. Verify this crucial step, especially if there was a relevant spike in temperature that may have caused you to switch off the “heat” setting.
- Check your switches – in your home’s circuit breaker panel, discover the breakers that operate your furnace:
- [Ensure|Guarantee|Confirm]48] that the switch is in the On position. If it is Off or in the middle of the two spots, change the breaker to Off and then reset it to On.
- The switch that appears to look like a light switch should also be in the On, or Up, position. It can easily be misidentified as a real light switch, which is why it is frequently the issue with furnace troubleshooting. Once it’s back On, the system will only require a few minutes to reboot.
Going through these steps is a straightforward and effective way of ensuring the efficiency of your furnace before you make a call to your Northglenn professional. If there are still problems after you have made it through these steps, you will have a much wider idea on how to notify your [[technicians|specialists|experts}69] on what the problem might be.
