5 Quick Furnace Fixes

On a cold winter night, what if your Furnace fails to suffice for your heating needs and you have no other heating alternative as well? And what if there's no service in your vicinity which could be called? Sounds like a scary thought but factually speaking, a lot of homeowners have to go through this or a similar situation in winter. And then the only option they are left with is to spend an absolutely horrible and uncomfortable night. But we won't let this happen to you. This blog will highlight some of the common Furnace problems and some quick fixes that homeowners can try in case of emergency.

- The furnace is not heating home - Fix it!

If Furnace is not heating the home, what else is it heating? Hmmm, maybe the circuit breaker. This situation can occur because of multiple reasons out of which the most common is that the circuit breaker had tripped, fused or blown away. So what can you do about it?  For that, reset your circuit breaker and to do that, switch if off and then on. Be sure to do it only once and switch the button off and then turn it back on. Strictly as directed!

- The furnace is producing insufficient heat - Fix it! 

In the cases when Furnace is producing heat but not sufficient, the most probable cause is the dirty filters that are not allowing the air to easily flow through them resulting in a reduced supply of warm air. For that, do this:
Well you know what to do, let's talk about the next fix.

- Electric Furnace is not igniting - Fix it! 

So the Furnace this time may be causing this trouble of not igniting at all. Troubleshoot this by switching the power off. Then turn the power on. This resetting of the electric supply is most probable to ignite the Furnace back again. If this does not work out, disconnect all power and gas supplies and reach out to the ignitor to inspect it. Broken or cracked? Well, this is something that needs replacement and a professional can do it. So this time, try no DIY.

- Gas Furnace is not starting - Fix it!

After a long break, when the heating system is brought into use again, there are a number of problems that show up one of which is a (gas) Furnace that does not start. When this happens, you need to ensure that the gas supply line is open. Also, if a gas boiler/water heater is used at home, check out whether or not that is operating. If that is operating but Furnace is not, follow the gas line all the way to the Furnace and inspect thoroughly if there's something obstructing the supply. No resolve?
Well, now call a professional!

- Burning odours - Fix it! 

Whether such a smell is coming from outside the unit or from the inside, immediately do two things;
- Firstly, turn off all power and gas supplies to the unit. Also turn off the main power and gas supply of the home
- Make sure you go to a safer location at home or leave the home altogether
This precautionary measure is because the burning smells from the Furnace could mean a CO leak or a propane, natural gas leak. Any such leaks have the potential to bring serious consequences that may be fire, CO poisoning or similar. So take refuge!
