Being distressed about your comfort shouldn’t be something to dwell about as seasons shift and temperatures drop in Albany. It’s critical to remember that even as you transition from using your air conditioner to a furnace, both systems work independently and should be managed as such so you can avoid AC and furnace repairs. After all, you don’t want to be challenged with your furnace going out amid the coldest part of winter.

Of course we also must say that we extremely recommend that you have annual furnace service completed so that you’re not stuck calling us in the middle of the night with cold home. There are also a few things that you can check yourself prior to calling us, so if you do end up calling, we’ll both be on the same page and know that these simple things have already been looked at.
- Do you have the thermostat set to “heat”? – Once cooler weather finally settles in for good, it can be common to forget that you need to have your thermostat changed over to “heat.” It happens a lot more often than you’d realize, so be sure you double-check your thermostat and its setting.
- Is the furnace switch on? – Usually on the side of your furnace, the furnace switch looks like a normal light switch and should be flipped up, or on. If it’s not, flip the switch on, and once the built-in time delay period has gone by, your furnace will turn back on. The time delay is normally only a couple minutes.
- Have you changed your furnace filter? – Forgotten about more than people woud like to permit, furnace filters play a large role in the performance and efficiency of your system. There’s also a probability that it could prevent your furnace from operating at all. Be sure to swap your furnace filter out every three months for the best performance.
- Look at your circuit breaker – Another fundamental piece to check is your circuit breaker. If the breaker switch for your furnace is tripped, you can cycle it off and then back on. Doing so should allow the system to kick back on. If it doesn’t, give us a ring and we can work together to figure out what the problem is.
