Check These Things Before Calling Heat Repairs

Start by checking the thermostat to ensure you’ve set the furnace to the correct setting. Ideally, it should be above the current room temperature. It’s often the reason for low heat and is worth checking first. Secondly, check the power source. Ensure the furnace is connected to the power source and is switched on.

Furthermore, check the air filter. A dirty or clogged air filter may block or restrict airflow and cause the furnace to malfunction. If you have a gas or fuel furnace, ensure there’s sufficient supply by checking the gas valve to ensure it’s open and checking the oil tank to ensure it’s not empty. Lastly, check the vents in your home and ensure all vents are open and unobstructed.

If you’ve completed an inspection and still can’t find the fault, it may be time to contact an HVAC specialist. Trying to fix complex furnace problems can be dangerous. Technicians can make a professional diagnosis and repair the problem.
