Here's What to Do When Your Furnace Won't Ignite

February 23, 2017

We are making our way through the last few weeks of winter but we still need our furnaces, especially during cool nights. Not much is worse than going to bed at night just to find out your furnace won’t start up. If your furnace won’t turn on, here are a couple things you can check yourself before your call Winnipeg Supply Service Experts.

Check Air Filters

You should replace standard air filters every 30 days. If you don’t, they can get clogged, blocking air flow and causing your furnace to malfunction.

Check Your Thermostat

See if turning the temperature up a few degrees will get the furnace to turn on. If the current room temperature is higher than the thermostat, the furnace won’t run. Also, confirm the system switch is on “heat” or “auto.”

Check the Power

It may seem silly, but verify the power switch next to the heating equipment is “On.” Even gas heating equipment uses electricity so make sure the breaker has not tripped and that the power switch has not been accidently switched to the “Off” position.

If you inspect all these things and your heating system will still not turn on, give Winnipeg Supply Service Experts a call at 204-800-0613 and we’ll come out and get you taken care of as soon as possible.
