Furnace repair in Eau Claire, WI — we’re ready to roll to your home. If you need emergency furnace repair, contact us.
If your furnace is on the fritz, there are a couple of things you can try before you call our HVAC technicians. These are all simple things you can do even if you don’t consider yourself ‘technical’.
Check Exterior Vents
Your furnace vents to the outside of your home. These plastic pvc pipes must be kept clear of snow. Sometimes our furnace repair in Eau Claire, WI is simply shoveling out the furnace vents from snow drifts.
Check Furnace Filter
Next on the list — a dirty filter can actually shut down your furnace. Some furnaces will turn off and on over and over if they can’t draw air due to a dirty filter.
Changing your filter is something you can set and forget by getting on an HVAC Maintenance Plan OR, you can easily do it yourself.
Changing your filter is extra important if you have pets that shed or allergies. Make sure to do it at least once / year.
Then, as simple as it seems, check your thermostat. There can be several problems that are simple to solve.
- Is the thermostat working? If it’s not showing anything on the screen, perhaps you need to change the batteries. (Easy fix!)
- Is your thermostat set to “Heat”? It could be that someone in the house changed the thermostat or even that your programmable thermostat has the wrong setting.
- Is the fan blowing? If you turn the furnace fan to ‘ON’, it should kick in which would tell you that your furnace has electricity and that the fan is working.
