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

We are trudging through the last few weeks of winter but we still are relying on our furnaces, especially during cool nights. Not much is worse than laying down at night just to realize your furnace won’t start up. If this happens to you, here are a couple things you can check yourself prior to calling Stevenson Service Experts. 

Check Air Filters 

You should replace standard air filters every 30 days. If you don’t, 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 true room temperature is higher than the thermostat, the furnace won’t kick on. Also, confirm the system switch is on “heat” or “auto.” 

Check the Power 

It may seem silly, but make sure the power switch next to the furnace is “On.” Even gas heating systems use electricity so verify the breaker has not tripped and that the power switch wasn’t accidently switched to the “Off” position. 

If you check all these things and your heating system will still not turn on, give Stevenson Service Experts a call at 614-334-3192 and we’ll come out and get you taken care of as soon as possible.
