What To Do When Your Furnace Breaks Down

As the temperatures settle into more seasonal norms, you may want to keep a close watch on your furnace. The colder it is outside, the harder your furnace will have to work to keep your home warm and comfortable.

A furnace breakdown in cold weather is the last thing anyone wants. However, because it is running so much, this is most likely the time that it will.

If your furnace stops running, here is what you should do:


Check Your Thermostat
Make sure that your thermostat is switched over to ‘heating’ mode. Check and change the batteries if your thermostat is battery-operated.

Check Your Circuit Breaker
Find and check the circuit breaker for your furnace. It may have somehow gotten tripped off; flip it back to the 'on' setting.


Change Your Filter
Make sure that you have a clean furnace filter. A dirty filter restricts airflow; this can overheat the system, causing a furnace to shut down.

Examine Your Outdoor Exhaust
Locate your outdoor exhaust pipe/vent. Make sure that they are clear and free of debris or snow and ice.
