When your heating system isn’t delivering heat to your Glasgow, KY, home, you might immediately reach for the phone to call us at HVAC Services, Inc. for help. However, there are a few things you can do before giving us a call. Try these three steps to see if they solve your heating system problem. If they don’t, we’re always ready to assist you.
1. Check the Circuit Breaker
Even if you have a gas-powered furnace, it still needs electricity to power the ignition and fan for the blower. Your circuit breaker may have tripped, cutting power to the furnace or heat pump. If the circuit breaker is fine, make sure the system’s power switch is in the “on” position.
2. Verify the Thermostat Settings
Make sure the thermostat is set to “heat” and the fan is set to “auto.” If the fan is set to “on,” it will blow room-temperature air when there’s on heating cycle taking place. Verify that the thermostat is set to a temperature that’s higher than your home’s current temperature.
3. Check the Air Filter
Turn off the heating system. Access the air handler’s filter compartment. You might need a Philips head screwdriver to open the compartment. Slide out the air filter. If it’s visibly dirty, replace it with a clean one. A dirty filter could impede the flow of heated air through your home’s ducts. Make sure your room’s vents are open. Remove the vent covers and check for blockages or debris. If you’re still not getting heat, it’s time to call for help.
