Before You Call Us, Try These Simple Tricks from Our Heating Experts

For many, the immediate reaction to an HVAC issue is to make a phone call. By reading through our tips below, you may find that you’re equipped to fix the problem yourself, without needing to call for help. If you don’t feel comfortable performing the following tasks, don’t worry – the experts at Jarboe’s are only a phone call away.

Make sure there’s power to the furnace.

  • Turn the fan to “ON” on the thermostat to test for power to the furnace
  • If nothing happens, try to reset the breakers at the electrical panel, especially if the thermostat shows a blank reading.

Ensure air is coming out of your vents.

  • Check all the return air grilles and registers. Keep them open and blowing air, and try not to block them with furniture or other objects.

Check the thermostat’s batteries.

  • Even thermostats wired to the home might still utilize batteries. If the display on your thermostat is out, but the rest of the home has power, replacing the batteries may be the solution.

Check the air filters.

  • Ideally, air filters should be changed every couple of months. Clogged filters can cause a system to provide irregular, inconsistent heat levels.

Ensure your power/gas are on.

  • It’s possible the problem is external, like a power outage in your region.
  • If a gas leak is detected, gas companies will often turn off gas service. Check the meter for a red tag or a lock on the gas valve leading to the meter.

Clear the outside unit of any obstructions.

  • Leaves, debris, etc. can cause a unit to overheat by blocking airflow. Try to maintain a three-foot, unobstructed radius around the unit.

For older gas furnaces, check the pilot light.

  • Although most units use electronic ignitions, some gas furnaces still have pilot lights.

For newer gas furnaces, check the flash code.

  • When there’s a problem, your gas furnace will have some flash codes indicating that something is wrong. The furnace panel should display some explanation of the different flash codes, so you will know if it is indicative of an issue, as there are also “normal” flash codes.

Check the temperature setting on the thermostat.

  • Make sure the thermostat is set to the heat, and that the temperature setting on the thermostat is set higher than the current indoor temperature.

The unit may be frozen.

  • You may need to turn it off and allow the ice to melt. After the ice is gone, turn the unit on again to see if it’s working.

If you have an air handler, check the following:

  • The panel switch may have come loose. If the panel is loose/removed, power to the furnace or air handler is cut off.
  • For both gas furnaces and air handlers, you may need to check the secondary pan and see if it’s flooded with water. This may indicate a clogged condensation line, which will need to be cleared/unclogged for the unit to function properly.

Your Decision Should Be Based on Comfort, Not Budget

Your continued comfort in your own home is continually affected by your HVAC system. On average, HVAC systems account for half of the home’s monthly energy usage. You can have peace of mind with an efficient, dependable heating and cooling system. Sometimes homeowners may need to replace the old, inefficient system with a newer, energy-efficient one, especially if a repair doesn’t make financial sense. With consumer financing, a new HVAC system can easily fit into your budget, without breaking the bank. With a more efficient system, you ensure that every dollar you spend is returned in comfort and energy savings you can enjoy for years to come.
