Here’s What to Do When Your Furnace Won’t Ignite

We are making our way through the last of the weeks of winter but we still need our furnaces, especially during cool nights. Not much is worse than turning in at night and realizing your furnace won’t kick on. If this happens to you, here are some things you can check yourself before your call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning. 

Check Air Filters 

You should change standard air filters each month. If you do not, they can become clogged, blocking air flow and resulting in a furnace malfunction. 

Check Your Thermostat 

Start by turning the thermostat up a few degrees to get the furnace to turn on. If the current room temperature is higher than the thermostat, the furnace won’t run. Also, verify the system switch is on “heat” or “auto.” 

Check the Power 

It may seem silly, but confirm the power switch next to the heating system is “On.” Even gas heating equipment uses electricity so confirm the breaker has not tripped and that the power switch wasn’t accidently switched to the “Off” position. 

If you review all these things and your heating system will still not start up, give Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning a call at 215-259-5850 and we’ll come out and get you heating again as soon as possible.
