In Need of Emergency Furnace Repair?

A shivering old man in need of emergency furnace repairThey say that you never truly appreciate what you have until it’s gone. This saying definitely applies to your furnace – an appliance that you probably don’t think about until you notice that your house has gone cold. In Minneapolis, it’s necessary to have a functioning furnace in order to keep your home warm and safe. However, what if your furnace stops working when the temperatures are well below freezing? Don’t panic, just follow the steps below and call us for emergency furnace repair:

1. Check the Power Before you start making phone calls, check to see if a power outage caused your furnace to stop working. Are the lights in the furnace room working? Did you blow a fuse that caused you to lose power to your furnace? Is your neighbor’s power working? If all of your lights and outlets are working, there are several other possible issues that you can troubleshoot.

2. Check your Thermostat When someone messes with your thermostat, it can really throw you for a loop! Check your thermostat to make sure that it’s on and set to “heat.” Next, set your thermostat five degrees warmer than the current temperature of the room. You should hear the furnace turn on almost immediately. If the screen remains blank and the furnace doesn’t turn on, pop new batteries into your thermostat and see if that does the trick. If the thermostat seems to be working fine, but the furnace won’t turn on, it’s time to take a look at the furnace.

3. Troubleshoot your Furnace Take a trip to your furnace room and check on the following components that are known troublemakers:

  • Check to ensure that the furnace shutoff switch (located on or near your furnace) is turned on.
