Here's What to Do When Your Furnace Won't Ignite

February 23, 2017

We are making our way through the last few weeks of winter but we still have to have our furnaces, especially during cool nights. Nothing is worse than going to bed at night just to realize your furnace won’t turn on. If you find yourself in this situation, here are some things you can check yourself before your call TML Service Experts.

Check Air Filters

You should change standard air filters each month. If you do not, they can end up clogged, blocking air flow and resulting in a furnace malfunction.

Check Your Thermostat

See if turning the temperature up a few degrees will get the furnace to turn on. If the current room temperature is higher than the thermostat, the furnace won’t run. Also, verify the system switch is on “heat” or “auto.”

Check the Power

It may seem silly, but verify the power switch next to the heating equipment is “On.” Even gas heating equipment uses electricity so verify the breaker has not tripped and that the power switch has not been accidently moved to the “Off” position.

If you review all these things and your heating system will still not turn on, give TML Service Experts a call at 208-488-4892 and we’ll come out and take care of you as soon as possible.
