What Do I Do If My Furnace Stops Working?

The last thing any homeowner wants as the temperatures dip into freezing: a broken furnace! So what do you do if your furnace stops working? In many cases, a furnace that completely fails requires repairs or possibly replacement, but there are a few things you can check into before you give us a call.

Troubleshooting If Your Furnace Breaks Down

Here are a few things you should do if your furnace stops working:

  • Check the thermostat. Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best. Make sure no one in the house accidentally changed the thermostat settings or turned off the furnace. You should also check to make sure that the thermostat is functioning properly—if it isn’t hardwired, make sure it has batteries.
  • Check your switches and breakers. Go to your circuit breaker and make sure that you haven’t tripped a breaker and caused your furnace to shut down. The furnace should be marked on the switchboard, but if it isn’t, look for it connected to one of the larger switches. If it’s not in the “on” position, flip it into place.
  • Clear the way. This includes replacing air filters and ensuring the returns and vents are all clear of obstructions. Blocked airflow, no matter the cause, can cause major problems for your furnace.

Whether you need furnace repair in Princeton, furnace service in Edison, or heating services in a surrounding area in Central Jersey, we can help!
