Five Things To Check If Your Furnace Goes Out

Sponsored Content provided by Jimmy Williams - Owner, O’Brien Service Company

It is important to have your heating system working properly during the cold winter months, for obvious reasons. There are many problems that could cause a gas furnace to have issues, and O’Brien Service Company is ready to help you troubleshoot and fix them.

Still, there are a few things worth checking on your gas furnace system before calling us for a furnace repair.

  1. If you are comfortable and familiar with the pilot, check that your pilot is lit.
     
  2. Check the thermostat to ensure that it is on the correct setting.
     
  3. Make sure that your filters are clean. If they are dirty, be sure to change them quickly.
     
  4. Check that the circuit breaker is on.
     
  5. Be sure to check and test the batteries in your home’s carbon monoxide detector.
If you do not feel comfortable checking any of these possible causes of a malfunctioning gas furnace, then O’Brien can do it for you.

It’s important to leave any major repairs to a professional. Trying to fix a major furnace repair on your own can not only be dangerous to the system, but also to you. The best way to avoid an emergency furnace repair is to make sure that it is serviced annually by a professional. This will ensure that your furnace is running at its peak efficiency and can help prevent costly fixes.

When dealing with a gas furnace, be sure to call a professional right away if you smell gas. Make sure your gas switch is turned off and do not light any matches. You should leave your home immediately and contact your gas company or the fire department. You should not return to your home until the situation has been dealt with.
