Simple Things to Check Before Calling Mr. Duct
You can always count on Mr. Duct arriving promptly for furnace repair and heating service, but here are a few simple things to try before calling:Gas Furnace Equipment Checklist
- Check to make sure that your thermostat is set in the "heat" position.
- Make sure that the temperature setting on the thermostat is set above (or higher than) the indoor temperature showing on the thermostat.
- Ensure that there is power to the furnace.
- Try turning the fan to "ON" using the fan switch on the thermostat to test for power to furnace.
- Check the circuit breakers at the electrical panel.
- Check the SSU switch (it looks like a light switch on a gray box located at the furnace) to be sure it is in the "ON" position.
- Check to ensure the furnace filter isn't in need of replacement.
- All one-inch thick furnace filters should be replaced monthly.
- Wider two-inch thick and other high-capacity pleated filters can most likely be changed every other month or just six times per year.
- If the system is running but you have not changed your filter, the filter needs to be replaced.
- Check all return air grilles to make sure they are not blocked by furniture.
- Check all supply air registers to make sure they are open and blowing air. (The return air grilles are normally located on your walls and are wide and flat).
