No Heat? It’s a scenario that no homeowner ever wants to deal with: You go to turn up your thermostat, only to find that the temperature of your home is steadily decreasing no matter how high you set it at. Dumbfounded, you place your hand near your heating vents—nothing is coming out. It begins to dawn on you that you currently have no heat.
What should you do?
Step 1: Check Your Circuit Breakers and Service Switch
Since electricity is required to operate even furnaces that utilize propane or natural gas as fuel sources, the first place to look when things aren’t operating properly is your circuit breakers. Be sure the switch is in the ON position.
Step 2: Change the Furnace’s Air Filter
So your circuit breaker isn’t showing any issues—it could be the air filter. If your furnace’s air filter ends up getting too dirty, blockages can reduce the volume of hot air put out by your furnace, which can eventually result in complete and total shutdown. Sometimes, switching out the air filter is all that needs to be done to get things working properly again, which is a very inexpensive fix.
Step 3: Check Your Thermostat
This may sound like common knowledge, but you’re going to want to closely inspect your thermostat if you’re not getting any heat to come out of your vents. A common scenario is when the “heating” mode of operation is switched off, which can make it seem as if your furnace is broken. Check to ensure that it’s set properly before investigating further.
Step 4: Inspect Your Furnace
A number of different factors can result in furnace breakdown. You’ll want to check to see whether or not the blower motor is working properly. If your fuel source is propane, you may want to check to ensure you haven’t run out.
