Determine Whether You Need Furnace Repair from a Denver, CO Company
A broken furnace makes for a miserable winter. How do you know what’s wrong with your furnace? And how can you determine whether you need a repair or a new furnace altogether?
The technicians at HomeSmart from Xcel Energy have plenty of experience offering furnace repair and furnace replacement in Denver, CO. We’ll give you some guidelines to know what could have gone wrong with your furnace and when you should call the professionals.
How to Check Your Furnace
Remember that a furnace heats your home by heating cold air. It sends the heated air through a blow motor that distributes the air through ducts located throughout your home. When the air in your home cools, it sucks back into the furnace to for reheating.
So what if your furnace isn’t performing like it should? Ask yourself the following:
- Is the thermostat set too low? Make sure it's set correctly and in “heating” mode. The problem could lie with your thermostat rather than your furnace, so make sure the thermostat is working correctly.
- Is the power supply on? You might have a broken or blown fuse. Reset the circuit breaker to fix fuses, and replace any blown ones.
- Is the pilot light out? The pilot light should be on at all times, but certain things can disrupt it and cause it to go out—a strong draft, for instance, or a dirty surface. Relight it to fix the problem. (Be sure to consult your owner’s manual for instructions before relighting).
- Is it time to replace the filter? If the air that comes out of your furnace is dirty, it's time to replace the filter. Routine maintenance will keep your furnace in good shape and prevent it from developing worse problems.
