There is nothing worse than running into a problem with your furnace during the cold winter months.
One of the most frustrating situations is finding that your furnace won’t turn on. If this happens, you need to take immediate action.
Before you do anything, here a few things you should check:
Make sure your furnace isn’t turned off for some reason
Check your electrical panel to ensure that the circuit running your furnace isn’t tripped
Check your thermostat, making sure that it’s set to heat at a higher temperature than the current temperature in your home
While these are basic steps, you’ll want to do all three before calling a professional. You may come to find that you can fix the problem on your own, such as by adjusting your thermostat or simply turning on your unit.
If your furnace still won’t turn on, don’t wait another minute to contact a professional. We’re more than happy to take your call, answer your questions, and visit your home immediately. From there, we can diagnose the problem and ensure that your furnace is once again working as it should.
Do you have reason to believe that it’s time to replace your old furnace? Are you wondering if now is the time to take action?
If so, you need to learn more about your current heating system as well as the many replacement options.
Here are three top reasons to replace your old furnace:
· Age. Let’s face it: a heating system does not last forever. So, if your furnace is 15+ years old, it’s time to consider a replacement. It may be difficult to make this decision, but a new unit will provide you with more efficient service.
· High repair costs. There is no denying the fact that there are times when it makes sense to repair a furnace, such as if your unit is relatively new. However, if you have an old unit in need of repair, it’s probably more cost effective to replace it.
· Flooded basement. Unfortunately, many people come to find that their furnace is damaged beyond repair as the result of water in their basement. If too much water enters your unit, internal components can be permanently damaged.
So, there you have it. You may not look forward to replacing your furnace, but there are times when this is the best decision you can make.
