Keeping year-round contentment shouldn’t be something that you have to fret about every time you switch between your air conditioner and furnace as the temperatures change. While you certainly don’t want to have to even think about the possibility of your furnace stopping in the middle of winter, it can be a realistic possibility with every passing year – especially if you’re not keeping up with annual furnace service.
At Strand Brothers Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, we recognize that having the make a call in the middle of the night, on one of the harshest nights in Austin isn’t on any list of to-dos that you have, but it’s important to note that we should be your first call. Regardless of the hour, the team at Strand Brothers Service Experts has a NATE-certified technician free 24/7/365 to be there in your point of need. We can help get your furnace back up and functioning so everything can get back to the usual and you can start enjoying the comforts of your space once again.
Regardless of the make, model or age of your furnace, we have the proficiency required to get your system back up and running quickly and correctly, the first time. We equate the repair process to having a doctor do a checkup, find a diagnosis and then work to align the issue.
However, before giving us a call, there are a few things that you should keep in mind:
- Is your thermostat set to “heat”? – when the weather finally turns and it is time to turn on your furnace, it’s simple to forget to flip the switch over to “heat” for the winter. And believe it or not, it’s more normal than you’d think. Do a fast check to make sure yours is set properly.
- Furnace switch – it looks like a simple light switch, but it controls your furnace. It should be in the Up, or On, position.
Once On, your furnace won’t start up right away, but does turn on in a couple minutes as there are built-in delays in most systems.
- Furnace filter – filters are regularly forgotten about, but are one of the largest culprits when it comes to inefficient operation and poor performance for your furnace. Make sure you switch your filter every one to three months to have greater performance.
- Circuit breaker – if your furnace is not working, check the emergency shut off and your breaker. Cycle it by switching them off, then on again. If the system still doesn’t work, call us to help you dispose of the source of the matter.
*If you notice a strong gas smell, call Strand Brothers Service Experts immediately.
