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

February 23, 2017

We are getting through the last several weeks of winter but we still need our furnaces, especially during frigid nights. Not much is worse than going to bed at night and realizing your furnace won’t kick on. If your furnace won’t turn on, here are a couple things you can check yourself prior to calling Rolf Griffin Service Experts .

Check Air Filters

You should replace standard air filters monthly. If you fail to do so, 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 true room temperature is higher than the thermostat, the heating system won’t turn on. Also, confirm the system switch is on “heat” or “auto.”

Check the Power

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

If you check all these things and your heating system will still not start up, give Rolf Griffin Service Experts a call at 260-557-1275 and we’ll come out and take care of you as soon as possible.
