AC Man Houston
Would you want to spend $100 and then be told the obvious? You wouldn’t?
We didn’t think so. However, that is what frequently occurs when homeowners in Houston call us about furnace repair. The “problem” is often caused by a minor problem that could have been repaired, which could save themselves the expense of a service call.
If your furnace is not working the way that it should be, wait on the service call. First, try out the following 4 simple troubleshooting tasks. If they do not fix the problem, then call us for assistance.
1. Check The Thermostat For Problems
Is your furnace not turning on? First, check your thermostat and then do the following tasks:
Make sure that your thermostat is set on “heat” and not on “cool”
Also, be sure the thermostat is turned 5 degrees higher at least than the room temperature is.
Replace the battery on the thermostat
Open up the thermostat and blow out any accumulated dirt or dust. If your furnace is sometimes blowing cool air, you should check your thermostat fan setting in order to be sure it is on “auto” and not “on.” A furnace’s “on” setting” causes the blower to run continuously even when the air is not being heated by the furnace.
2. Check Your Furnace Filter
Is the furnace randomly shutting down? Does it run for long periods of time and seem to not heat your house? Is it weak air coming out of the vents?
