When your to-do list is longer than a standard baseball game, sometimes even large tasks get knocked off. If a furnace tune-up was on your list and never happened, you may be stuck in a dreaded situation – your furnace just went out. Unfortunately, significant problems like these occur during the most inconvenient times, like when you’re having Thanksgiving dinner.
If your furnace recently stopped working, we’re here to tell you it’s not the end of the world. Sure, you may be a little chiller than usual, but your friends at A.J. Perri are here to help keep your New Jersey home warm.
What could be the cause?
Malfunctioning thermostat: It could be that your furnace isn’t the cause at all. Your thermostat could need batteries or a second look by heating experts. The A.J. Perri team is always here to help seven days a week. Schedule your appointment.
Blown circuit or fuse: Find your home’s breaker box and manually test the circuit connected to the furnace by flipping the switch back and forth. You’ll want to make sure the button stays in the “on” position.
Dirty air filter: Unchanged air filters are often the culprit behind inefficient heating systems. Failure to change your air filter at least every three months could result in significant problems. If you’re stuck on how to choose the air filter perfect for your furnace, start here.
What to do when your furnace goes out
If you tried the above solutions and your furnace still isn’t operating correctly or at all, it’s time to get the professionals at A.J. Perri involved. Repairing and diagnosing a furnace problem is not something we recommend as a do-it-yourself project.
