Here's What to Do When Your Furnace Won't Ignite

February 23, 2017

We are trudging through the last several weeks of winter but we still are relying on our furnaces, especially during cool nights. Nothing is worse than going to bed at night just to find out your furnace won’t turn on. If you find yourself in this situation, here are a few things you can check yourself before your call Atmostemp Service Experts.

Check Air Filters

You should replace standard air filters monthly. If you fail to do so, they can end up clogged, blocking air flow and causing your furnace to malfunction.

Check Your Thermostat

See if turning the temperature up a few degrees will get the furnace to turn on. If the actual room temperature is higher than the thermostat, the furnace won’t run. Also, confirm the system switch is on “heat” or “auto.”

Check the Power

It may seem ridiculous, but verify the power switch next to the heating equipment is “On.” Even gas heating systems use electricity so confirm the breaker has not tripped and that the power switch has not been accidently flipped to the “Off” position.

If you check all these things and your furnace will still not turn on, give Atmostemp Service Experts a call at 856-310-4824 and we’ll come out and get you taken care of as soon as possible.
