Heating problems are never fun to deal with, but they happen to all of us on occasion. Before you call for repairs for your heating system, though, there are a couple things that you should check. In all likelihood, you’re still going to need to have a professional repair your system. Still, by checking some simple things you could save yourself a fair amount of time and money. Let’s take a look at some of those things now.
Check the Thermostat
You’d be amazed how many heating problems are created by a simple thermostat issue. Before you call for heating repair, check the thermostat carefully to make sure that everything is set properly. If the thermostat doesn’t seem to be acting properly, either because it’s displaying the wrong temperature or won’t switch settings, it may be the source of your heating problem. If you simply need to fiddle with the settings a bit, though, then you’re in luck!
Check the Circuit Breaker
Much of the time, if a heating system isn’t activating it has nothing to do with the system itself. More often than not, the circuit breaker has been tripped for some reason and the system isn’t getting any power. Have a look at the circuit for your heating system, and make sure that it’s closed. If not, then resetting the circuit should be enough to get the system to restart. Now, if the circuit breaker keeps tripping after resetting it then you probably have an electrical problem. Still, it’s worth a shot to try it.
If you’re still dealing with heating problems after trying the above steps, you should call for a professional and trust them to handle it for you.
