How to Solve Common Heating Problems

Winter hasn’t arrived yet, but we can imagine that a cold season without home heating can be a miserable one. It’s not common that your HVAC system will break down, but in the event that it does, we’d like to prepare you. So below is a quick list of common heating problems and what you can do to solve them:

Set to “heat”.

This solution is obvious yet is oftentimes overlooked. Always double-check your settings and easily make the switch if your thermostat is displaying a cool setting. Then, set it to the proper and most comfortable temperature. If that doesn’t work, call your HVAC pro to come take a look.

My thermostat isn’t working.

Check the batteries. Sometimes your thermostat is wired to an electrical system and other times it operates off batteries. Many times your thermostat will tell you that your battery power is low, but if it doesn’t, check them anyway and replace if needed.

My furnace is broken.

Before you jump to any conclusions, check the circuit breaker. The problem might not be your furnace – it might actually be the circuit that controls your furnace. If the switch is off, turn it on. If that doesn’t fix the problem or you’re hesitant to play around with the settings, call your local heating and cooling technician to help you out.
