As cooler fall temperatures arrive in Bluffton, South Carolina, you want to feel confident that your heating system is ready for the season ahead. Don’t let these three furnace issues prevent you from staying cozy and warm.
Your Furnace Won’t Turn On
When you first turn on your heating system for the season, things don’t always go as planned. If your furnace simply won’t turn on, there’s a good chance your pilot light can’t stay lit or the ignition system has broken down.
Since these issues can require complex repairs, don’t try to fix it yourself. Instead, call the heating technicians at Dyess Air, and we’ll get your furnace up and running in no time.
Your Home Doesn’t Feel Warm
Just because your furnace turns on doesn’t mean it does a great job at keeping your home warm. If your home still feels chilly despite the furnace, start with some basic troubleshooting. First, check to be sure that all of the vents throughout your home are open and that none are blocked by furniture, appliances, or rugs.
Next, check the thermostat and make sure it’s set to heat. During the heating season, try setting the thermostat to 68 degrees, a temperature that will keep your family warm without wasting energy. If that doesn’t get your home warm and cozy, call our heating experts to check your furnace’s wiring, utility connections, and motor function.
Your Indoor Air Quality Is Poor
No matter what the season, your HVAC system is designed to keep your home’s air quality good. If your furnace hasn’t been serviced in over a year, however, there’s a good chance it will contribute to an air quality problem rather than improve it.
Schedule HVAC maintenance, and leave the air quality problems to our knowledgeable technicians. We’ll change the air filters, clean the system, and recommend custom indoor air quality solutions if necessary.
