Try These Simple Fixes

To conserve money and ensure the proper functioning of your heating system, consumers can rely upon do-it-yourself home fixes when attempting to resolve heating issues.  With that said, the team here at Wayne Price Heating & Air Conditioning wants to share some simple fixes you can try before calling in the professionals.

  • Be sure that your thermostat is in the proper heat mode and that the temperature is set above the current temperature in the house. If your thermostat requires additional configuration, be sure you have set the appropriate configurations as well.
  • Ensure that your heating system has power. Be sure to check the switch on the furnace to ensure that it is in the ‘on’ position.
  • If you have a gas furnace, you will want to make certain that the gas source is turned on properly. This source should be left on at all times, but if it appears to be off, be sure to consult with your gas company before making any adjustments yourself.
  • Be sure that your heating system has proper airflow. If your system is not getting sufficient air flow, it will not work properly.  This issue is typically the result of dirty air filters, covered returns or even closed registers.  Be sure to check each and make certain that all vents are open and filters are clean and air flowing smoothly.
