Are You Experiencing Furnace Problems? Here’s How to Fix Them

Are you experiencing issues with your furnace and have gone through all of the obvious steps of cleaning dirty filters and hoses with no avail? Your thermostat could be to blame! It might not seem like the obvious reason, but your thermostat can be the culprit of many HVAC issues you might experience over the years. The good news? It’s easy and affordable to repair and/or replace the thermostat(s) in your home.

Power Problems

If your thermostat is not indicating power or your system is running inconsistently, try replacing the batteries in your thermostat. If your furnace still isn’t running properly after replacing the batteries, it could be a blown fuse or circuit breaker, which your HVAC technician will be able to help fix!

Mismatched Components

Not all thermostats and HVAC systems work properly together. Make sure when replacing your furnace or thermostat, that the two components are compatible. If they’re not, there will be miscommunication and your system won’t run as it should.

Dust and Debris

Just like your furnace, your thermostat can get dust and debris build up in it, which can cause issues with your furnace running properly. Simply remove the cover of your thermostat and wipe down all of the components, including wires and coils. You should be up and running in no time!
