Furnace Troubleshooting; No Heat, Not Turning On, Not Igniting & More
If you’re having a hard time getting the furnace to kick on this winter, the professionals at Jacob’s Ladder Heating & Cooling would like to share a few troubleshooting tips to help you decipher whether or not you need our assistance.
– Check the Thermostat. The first thing you should check is the thermostat. Make sure it is turned onto the heat setting.
– Check the Pilot Light. If the pilot light isn’t lit, the furnace isn’t able to do its job. Make sure the ignition control system is working properly.
– Change the Filter. A dirty filter doesn’t allow the furnace to get proper air flow and can prevent it from working properly or at all.
Consider the Age of Your Furnace
If your furnace is over 10 years old, it may be time to replace it. The average furnace lasts between 10 and 15 years; so if your furnace falls near or between those two numbers you will likely be better off replacing it.
