With fall weather settling in and winter on the way, many Peachtree City area homeowners are turning on the heat for the season. For some of them, switching on the heat for the first time will yield an unpleasant surprise: a furnace that seems to have quit working as it sat unused throughout the warmer seasons. If this has happened to you, and your furnace worked just fine last year, there’s a good chance your problem could be quite simple. So if you’re fairly handy and comfortable with your heating system, here are some simple furnace fixes to try that might get it going again.
Other simple things to check include the gas supply valve to be sure it open, and, in older furnaces, the pilot light, which can be lit, if necessary, according to instructions you’ll find on or near the pilot assembly. If these furnace fixes don’t work or you don’t feel comfortable trying them, please contact us at Powers Heating & Air for assistance.
