Troubleshooting tips for your furnace in Ojai, Ventura, the San Fernando Valley and Santa Clarita
*Make certain that your home thermostat is on the HEAT setting.
*Check the temperature in your home by looking at the thermostat. The temperature should be set higher than the temperature currently in your home and displayed on the thermostat.
*Make sure that there is power to your home’s furnace by turning the fan to the ON position as a test.
*Make sure that your circuit breakers are set to the ON position at your home’s electrical panel.
*There is a switch that looks like a light switch on the gray box at your furnace. Make sure that this switch, called an SSU switch, is set to the “ON” position.
*Replace your home’s furnace filter if it has been a month or more since the last 1 inch thick filter replacement. If your home has a 2 inch thick or high capacity pleated filters, these should be replaced every other month.
*Inspect each of the return air grilles to assure that they are open and blowing and not blocked by furniture or other items in the room.
