Reduce Furnace Repair Costs
Simple Things to Try Before Calling Midwest Heating and Cooling for Service.
You can always count on Midwest Heating and Cooling for help and furnace repair. But here are a few simple things to try before scheduling a visit to your home for furnace service:Pre-Furnace Service or Furnace Repair Checklist
- Check your thermostat and set in the "heat" position.
- Make sure that the thermostat temperature setting is above (or higher than) the indoor temperature displaying on the thermostat.
- Ensure that there is power to the furnace.
- Try turning the fan to "ON" using the fan switch on the thermostat to test for power to the furnace.
- Check the circuit breakers at the electrical panel.
- Check the SSU switch (it looks like a light switch on a gray box located at the furnace) to be sure it is in the "ON" position.
- Check to ensure the furnace filter isn't in need of replacement.
- Replace all one-inch thick furnace filters monthly.
- Replace two-inch thick (or wider) and other high-capacity pleated filters every other month or just six times per year.
- Some newer systems have filters that replace annually.
- If the furnace is running, but you have not changed your filter, replace it before calling for furnace service.
- Check all return air grilles to ensure furniture and household items do not block.
- Check all supply air registers to make sure they are open and blowing air. (The return air grilles are typically located on your walls and are wide and flat).
If the above list does not solve your problem, contact Midwest Heating and Cooling right away for heating service. Be sure to have your model number.
