Troubleshoot The "Obvious"


We say the obvious, but really it's the easiest. If your furnace is out, you'll want to check to see if the furnace is turned on and if it is set to heat mode. It may be something as simple as this as to why your furnace is out. Check your thermostat next to see if a setting is not wrong.


Check The Circuit Breakers

Circuit breakers pop, or shut off, when a surge of electricity is detected coming into your home. This is to protect your electrical wiring from receiving too much energy that could then be a fire hazard. Check your circuit breaker to ensure it is on. You can try resetting it, too.


Is The Pilot Light On?


Sometimes your furnace is just not receiving enough gas or propane to get started. Then, your pilot light won't ignite to start your furnace. Check your gas valve to ensure it's in the "on"position, or check your propane tank gauge to ensure it is full.
