Illinois is equally well-known for civic-minded citizens and cold, blustery weather. When ice-fishing replaces water skiing, furnaces are much appreciated. If the warm air stops passing into the home, it doesn’t take very long to be noticed when the temperature is well below the freezing point.

There are a few simple things that can be checked before calling the repairman. It might be possible to save some money. The first thing to check is the thermostat. If it is a programmable thermostat with a blank screen, try replacing the batteries. When troubleshooting any thermostat, make sure that it is set to ‘heat’; turn it to the highest possible setting for troubleshooting. Make sure the furnace fan is set to ‘on’. Check to make sure that a fuse or breaker did not get tripped. Check the furnace to be sure it is turned on. Is there a problem with the gas service to the home? Check another gas unit (such as the stove or water heater) to see if they are working. The last thing to check is the furnace filter. If it has not been replaced for a long time, it may have become so clogged that the furnace automatically shut off.

If the furnace is still not working, it’s time to call a repairman. A well-established firm should have the resources to be able to respond quickly. If the furnace is regularly serviced under a furnace maintenance plan, then the technicians who are most familiar with the furnace will be responding to the call. That may save money and will certainly give peace of mind.
