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

Many people pick up the phone and call for service when something isn’t working right. If you follow our guidelines below, you may find that the problem is something you can easily fix yourself. If you are uncomfortable with checking any of these things, then call us and we will send one of our heating technicians to help.

  • Ensure that there’s power to the furnace.
    • Try turning the fan to “ON” on the thermostat to test for power to the furnace
    • If nothing happens, reset the breakers at the electrical panel, especially if the thermostat is showing a blank reading.
  • Make sure air is coming out of your vents.
    • Check all return air grilles and registers. Make sure they are not blocked by furniture and are open and blowing air.
  • Check your thermostat’s batteries.
    • Some thermostats still operate on batteries, even if they are also wired to the home. If the rest of your house has power, but the display on your thermostat is out, check the batteries to see if that fixes the problem.
  • Check your air filters.
    • If it’s been more than a couple of months since you changed your air filter, you should check to see if that’s the problem. Your HVAC system could be providing irregular heat due to clogged filters.
  • Make sure your power and gas are on.
    • There could be power outages in your area.
    • Sometimes a gas company will turn off gas service because they detected a leak. Check your meter for a red tag or a lock on the gas valve leading to the meter.
  • Remove obstructions from the outside unit.
    • Leaves, grass, and debris can block airflow to the unit causing it to overheat. If possible, make sure there’s a three-foot unobstructed radius around the unit.
  • Check the pilot light. (if it’s an older gas furnace)
    • Most people will have electronic ignitions, but some old gas furnaces will use pilot lights.
  • Check the flash code. (if it’s a newer gas furnace)
    • If something is wrong, your newer gas furnace will have some flash codes indicating a problem. Be aware that there are also normal flash codes. The panel on the gas furnace should have an explanation of the flash codes, so you will know if it is normal or problematic.
  • Check to see what temperature your thermostat is set at.
    • Make sure that the temperature setting on the thermostat is set higher than the current indoor temperature.
    • Make sure the thermostat is set to the heat position.
  • Is your unit frozen?
    • If so, turn it off and let the ice melt. Once there’s no more ice, turn it back on and check to see if your unit is working again.
  • If you have an air handler, check the following:
    • Make sure the panel switch did not come loose for whatever reason. Panel switches ensure power is cut off to the air handler or furnace if the panel is loose or removed.
    • For air handlers and gas furnaces check the secondary pan to see if it’s flooded with water. If so, you have a clogged condensation line, and it needs unclogged before the system can operate normally again.

Heating and Furnace Terminology to Know

There are many words and acronyms used in the HVAC industry that experts use throughout their conversations. It’s easier to make an informed decision when you know the common terms.

Air Handler
A device used to regulate and circulate air as part of an HVAC system. It’s usually a large metal box containing a blower and heating or cooling elements.

Airflow
The direction in which the distribution of air occurs.

AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency)
A measure of how efficiently your furnace can utilize its fuel. The more efficient your furnace, the more heat you will get per unit of fuel.

Burner
A device that facilitates the combustion of air and gas.

Coil
Used to increase or decrease temperature via heat transfer.

Dual Fuel
A system that pairs an electric heat pump with a gas furnace and alternates between the two sources.

Fan Coil Unit
A device that uses a coil and a fan to heat or cool a room without connecting to ductwork.

Gas Furnace
Part of an HVAC system that converts natural gas or propane into high-temperature heat for your home.

Heat Exchanger
A heating component that is located in the furnace and transfers heat to the surrounding air, which is then pumped throughout the home.

Heat Pump
Heat pumps transfer heat into or out of your home, keeping you comfortable all year long.

HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor)
A measure of how efficient your heat pump or air conditioner is. A unit with a high HSPF rating is considered more energy-efficient.

Oil Furnace
Part of an HVAC system which converts heating oil into high temperature heat.

Upflow Furnace
