Steps in Troubleshooting Heating Furnace Problem
If your furnace cannot provide heat to your home, follow these steps to check the problem on your own. If all else fails, make sure to call furnace repair service and let them help you solve your furnace problem. Just be prepared to pay up for the furnace servicing cost.
1. Turn off the power source of the furnace to avoid getting electrocuted. Make sure that the furnace is turned off from the main power source and not on the device only. The best way to do this is to unplug the furnace.
2. Check your furnace igniter for preliminary search for the cause of the furnace problem. Usually, when the furnace is turned and the igniter is broken, fuel is not fed properly into the chamber that is why heat is not produced.
3. Be careful in handling the igniter as it is a sensitive part of the furnace. If you see that it is broken, follow the instructions in the manual how to remove it and immediately replace it with a new one.
4. Check for dirty furnace filters. Having dirty furnace filters can also cause furnace problems. Aside from that, dirty air filters can also cause health problems if you inhale polluted air.
5. See if the furnace fans are working. If it is broken then check the source of the furnace problem. Usually, if this is the problem, it can be caused by the furnace motor or any of the capacitors that work directly with the motor.
