When your furnace stops working, it can be a major inconvenience. Here are a few things you can do to troubleshoot the issue and get your furnace up and running again.
First, check to make sure that your furnace is receiving power. If the power switch is turned off, flip it back on and wait a few minutes to see if the furnace turns on. If the switch is already on, check your fuse box or circuit breaker to ensure that the fuse hasn’t blown or the breaker hasn’t tripped.
If your furnace still isn’t working, the next step is to check the pilot light. If the pilot light has gone out, you’ll need to relight it according to the instructions in your furnace’s owner’s manual. Once the pilot light is lit, wait a few minutes to see if the furnace turns on.
If your furnace still isn’t working, there may be an issue with the thermostat. First, check to make sure that the thermostat is set to “heat” mode and not “cool” or “off.” Then, try adjusting the thermostat setting to see if that gets the furnace going.
If none of these troubleshooting tips solve the problem, it’s time to call in a professional. Furnaces are complex pieces of machinery, and trying to repair them yourself can be dangerous.

Here are three reasons why it’s important to get a furnace repair:
1. Furnaces can be dangerous.
Gas furnaces, in particular, use an open flame to heat your home. If there is a problem with your furnace, it could lead to a gas leak, which could be very dangerous.
2. Furnaces are expensive.
If you don’t get a repair when you need one, it could lead to more extensive and expensive damage down the road.
3. Furnaces are complex.
There are a lot of moving parts in a furnace, and if one of them isn’t working properly, it can throw the whole system off. A professional will be able to diagnose the problem and fix it quickly and efficiently.
