When it’s chilly outside, no one wants to arrive home to a cold house due to a malfunctioning heater. But if this happens, here are the things you need to check:
Your furnace has a switch in it. If your equipment isn’t turning on, check the switch, as someone might have switched it off accidentally. This is the first thing you should do before calling for a technician.
You can also check the power supply and see if any of your electrical breakers are tripped. Resetting a tripped breaker can get your heater going again. However, if the power keeps on tripping off on your heating system, it means a safety feature has been activated. It will be safer to call a licensed expert to check on the problem.
Safety Switch or Upper Limit Switch
This feature senses high temperatures in your furnace and shuts it off to prevent fire. A malfunctioning blower motor, control board, or capacitor can cause a fire hazard once not fixed right away. You should contact a professional HVAC technician to reset the system.
Thermocouple or Flame Sensor
It detects a weak or non-existent pilot light and shuts your furnace off to prevent an explosion. A thermocouple can be found in older equipment, while flame sensors are in modern furnaces.
Vent Safety Switch
This type of switch monitors all flue gasses as they go through the heat exchanger. They are ventilated through the top of the roof. This is proof that flue gasses can be exhausted from the furnace safely. If this switch is activated, the heating system will not start.
Does your thermostat run on batteries? Try replacing them. This simple fix often gets a heater running again. You can also try turning your thermostat to “heat” or “automatic” setting before your heater kicks in. Sometimes, smart thermostats get stuck and need to be restarted. You need to remove them from the wall and reattach them to complete a manual reset.
