Getting hit with unexpected heating failure can put your home in serious peril and you may require after-hours furnace service. While this repair may cost more for a homeowner due to after-hours rates, it’s essential to fix your unit if it’s freezing outside and you have no heat. However, before you make the call for after-hours furnace service, make sure to take a minute to inspect three things that could be the cause of your heating system problem.
First, take a look at your thermostat settings. You could have unknowingly altered them, or simply turned off the heating system without realizing it. Your thermostat should be set to HEAT and the set point should be higher than the actual temperature in order to send a signal to the furnace to start heating.
If you still have no heat after adjusting the thermostat settings, the second thing to check is the furnace unit itself—specifically the filter. A clogged filter can trigger an automatic furnace shut-off, ceasing heat from leaving the unit. Check the filter and swap it for a new one if it looks to be clogged. Once the filter blockage is clear, your furnace should once again be producing heat.
Lastly, make sure the outdoor intake and exhaust vents for your furnace are clear. This is how your furnace breathes and if either is clogged, it will surely cause heating problems.
If you’ve checked both the thermostat, filter and vents—and you still don’t have heat circulating in your home–then it’s time to call Delta Air Systems for furnace service. Our technicians will provide a quick and courteous solution to the issue and have your home warm again in no time.
