Common Issues with Simple Fixes
Before calling in the professionals, we here at South Nashville Heating and Coolin want to share some everyday common problems that can occur with your heating system and simple fixes you can try.
- Check that thermostat first – If you are having issues with your heating system turning on, be sure the thermostat is set in the heat mode. Also, be sure that the temperature on the thermostat setting is set above the current temperature within your living space.
- Is the power on? – Another simple and very practical cause to a system that will not start up is that the switch by the furnace may not be in the on position. Ensure the switch is on when starting up your system.
- Gas furnace flame – With a gas furnace the pilot light may have gone out. If this is the case, be sure to relight the pilot light to allow for the system to boot up and start heating your home.
- Adequate airflow is mandatory – If your heating system is not getting adequate air flow it will not function properly. Usually, air flow is interrupted because of dirty air filters or the registers in your home may be covered or blocked. Be sure to change out the air filters in your furnace at the start of the season and ensure that all registers are open and not blocked by furniture or other items. Also, make certain that all the vents are open.
