1. Check Your Thermostat
The thermostat is the most frequently broken component. It’s always a good idea to make sure your thermostat works properly before you check the furnace.
2. Check the Age of Your Furnace
Depending on the age of your furnace, it may be more cost efficient to repair your furnace than to replace it. Contact Academy Mechanical for free pricing estimates.
3. Check Your Air Filter
Air flow problems and increased allergies can be caused by a clogged, dirty or damaged air filter. If your air filter is fine, give us a call for help with additional furnace repair in Edmonton, Spruce Grove and surrounding areas.
4. Check the Breaker
If your breaker has flipped, make sure there are no burn marks on your control board or exposed loose wires before you flip the breaker back on.
5. Check Heat Pumps, Air Ducts, Drain Lines, etc…
Heat pumps, air ducts and drain lines can become clogged. Turn off the furnace completely before checking these areas. Check the chimney exhaust flue as well. Birds commonly try to nest here because of the warmth.
