Los Angeles Heating System Troubleshooting
If you have a furnace that seems to be acting strangely and you're not sure what's going wrong, here are a few troubleshooting tips you can try before you contact our Los Angeles heating specialist.
You don't always need to make a service call; here are a few things to try:
- First, you should see if the furnace is even getting the signal that you want heat.
- Turn up the thermostat – quite a bit higher than you usually would – and see if you can hear the furnace start. If the furnace is not making noise, the problem is either being caused by the thermostat itself or by the furnace.
- If that worked, replace the battery in your thermostat and see if that cures the problem. If it does not, you will need to get the help of our Los Angeles heating experts. It's also a good idea to check the circuit breaker. It's easy for the breaker to be kicked off and for that simple switch to fix the entire problem.
What happens if the blower turns on and you can hear it, but there is no heat coming from the furnace?
This can be caused by a variety of situations and is nothing that any homeowner should ever try to fix. What you heard could be the symptom of a serious problem, and you can do more harm than good if you try to fix it.
