What to Check Before You Call Heating Repair


Since we don’t use our heating systems all the time in Florida, we might not notice there is a problem early, only when we need our heating systems the most. If your heating system won’t turn on, you might not need to call for repairs right away. There might be a simple reason why you feel insufficient heating from your system, or that your system isn’t turning on. There are a few things you can check yourself to troubleshoot the problem. The issue might end up being quite simple.

Before you call for heating repair, check…

  • The power source: “Make sure it’s plugged in!” You hear this advice for every electronic appliance, but it bears repeating… although in the case of a your heating system, the power source can be a touch more complicated than a single plug. Make sure a circuit breaker hasn’t been tripped, and that the heating system has power.
  • The vents: If you have a heating system that uses forced air (a furnace or a heat pump), look over all the vents in the various rooms, especially any room that feels colder than normal. The vents might be shut, or have accidentally become blocked because of shifting furniture.
  • The thermostat: The thermostat is a key component of your heating system, and one that often gets taken for granted. If the thermostat is set incorrectly, it will not turn the heating system on at the right time. (Or, contrariwise, it might make the heating system run constantly when it shouldn’t.) If you have a programmable thermostat, look carefully over its programming to see that it was done correctly.
