What to Look For
- No Power to furnace – We recommend checking three main areas. See if the Circuit breaker has been tripped or blower fuse. Identify any problems inside or outside the furnace behind the front panel. if this doesn’t work look at the separate panel and switch the circuit if required.
- Turn on power switch – Normally you will see a switch that looks just like a light switch, identify where it is and turn it on. It’s always located near the furnace.
- Motor overheats – Find the switch for the motor and reset it 30 minutes after problem is identified.
- Pilot light has blown out – This is a not an uncommon issue for older furnaces. Generally this happens because the pilot light is easily blown out due to drafts from open doors or windows. As relighting the pilot light can pose a potential hazard we recommend calling a furnace professional such as the ones at Roger Brown AC, to ensure the pilot light is re-lit in a safe manner.
- Thermostat isn’t set properly – turn up thermostat 5 degrees
- Dirty Filter – Dirty filters can inhibit air flow thereby holding back warm air

There are many issues when performing a furnace repair that most home owners may not be equipped to handle. The biggest of them being that furnaces run on electricity, or gas, which can be dangerous to work with. An electric furnace repair can be dangerous form several things including possibly starting a fire in your home, not to mention the possibility of being electrocuted. A gas furnace repair also has some possible dangerous results if you’re not familiar with how they work.
Gas furnaces can produce toxic vapors like “carbon monoxide” which can be deadly. A gas furnace exploding and damaging your home is also a possibility if the furnace repair is done incorrectly.
