How To: Troubleshoot Furnace Problems in Your Home

If your furnace is not turning on, or is operating abnormally, you can try these troubleshooting steps first before contacting a furnace repair contractor.

ISSUE: Clean or Change the Furnace Filter
Why it is important…

Dirty air filters are a common cause of why your furnace airflow might be running poorly. The air filter removes dust from the circulating air of your furnace. Over time dust accumulates, and if not cleaned properly can lead to a furnace clog. A clogged air filter can cause poor indoor air quality, prevent the system from turning on, and create fire hazards. We recommend checking your furnace air filter every 30 days.

How To Clean and Check Your Furnace Filter:

Step 1: Turn off the thermostat and furnace system switch.

Step 2: Remove the furnace air filter and hold it up to a light to inspect the filter. If the light is unable to pass through it, the screen must be cleaned or replaced.

Step 3: If replacing and unsure of the exact dimensions needs, then be sure to check the furnace manual to find out the size of the air filter to purchase. If the air filter you are using is too small, it can cause improper filtration.

Step 3: Be sure the arrows on the new air filter are pointing in the direction in which the air should be flowing.

Step 4: Make sure you properly secure the access panel.

Step 1: If you are still having furnace issues after addressing the air filter, inspect the thermostat.

Step 2: Ensure the “heat” setting is turned on, and try raising the thermostat temperature by 5 degrees or more than the current setting.

Step 3: Check the thermostat batteries and replace them if they have low power.

Step 4: If you have an electromechanical thermostat, you can try opening and dusting the inside lightly with a brush. Be sure to clean the contact plates and metal coils as well.

Step 4: Ensure the thermostat function isn't being triggered by any outside elements such as a space heater, lamp, sunlight, oven, or any other heat source. This will skew the thermostat readings and impede its ability to determine your home temperature needs accurately.

It is possible that you can restore your furnaces to a functioning state by inspecting and trouble shooting some of the components that your heating system relies on. Always ensure your clothing and skin are dry for these steps to prevent potential for injury. If you are not comfortable with doing these steps, contact Wade to perform troubleshooting analysis of your furnace system.

Step 1: Locate the furnace switch of your heating system and make sure it is set to on. Turn it back on if it is not.

Step 2: If the previous step did fix the problem, turn off the furnace switch and check the electrical panel.

Step 3: If you can locate a clearly labeled breaker switch for the HVAC system, try flipping it to the off position. The off position should be the opposite direction the other breakers in the panel are facing.

Step 4: Check to see if any of the fuses are discolored or melted. If so, remove the damaged fuse by unscrewing it and replace it with another fuse of the same size and type.

Step 5: Now try to turn the furnace switch back on and see if the system is working. If the power does not come back on or if the breaker keeps getting tripped, you will want to contact Wade at (412) 489-4745.

If you have a gas furnace, you will want to check to be sure that your furnace flame is a healthy blue color. This indicates that the gas your furnace is powered by is being burned safely and efficiently. The flame should be a vivid blue color and may have a small yellow-colored tip.

A furnace flame that is green, purple, red, yellow, or any color shade that is not blue indicates that you have a potentially serious problem. If you have an abnormal colored furnace flame, contact an HVAC professional immediately.

If you smell gas in your home, one of the first things you should do is check to see if your furnace pilot light has burned out. If the flame of your furnace has extinguished, you will have to reignite it immediately.

Relighting the furnace pilot light is something that anyone can do, but you need to review your owners manual to learn how to do so correctly. Before lighting the pilot again, you must turn off the gas for about 10-15 minutes to clear the excess gas. But if you keep smelling gas after shutting it off, then you may have a gas leak. You will have to leave the house immediately and call the fire department and the gas company, from a safe distance of the building, to resolve the issue safely.

It is common for furnaces to cut off the system when the front panel is not fully closed. Read the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure that you are securing the access panel correctly.

If your furnace is functioning properly, but your rooms are still not getting heated enough, there may be a block in the air vents or registers. Check the return grills and the air supply units throughout your home to be sure they are all open and not being blocked by anything. Keeping the HVAC air registers closed in rooms that are not used doesn't save any money and can lead to furnace system issues. Be sure you don't have any air registers blocked by furniture, rugs, or any other possible item that could be restricting airflow.
