Troubleshooting Your Gas Furnace in Oregon

If you’re experiencing issues with your gas furnace, there are several things you can try yourself to troubleshoot the problem before calling an AC repairman in Oregon Below is a list of the four most common ways to troubleshoot your unit if it isn’t working properly.

1. Clean the Filters – If your gas furnace isn’t providing much heat, it may be due to a dirty or clogged air filter. Be sure to change your filters on schedule to reduce unnecessary strain on your unit!

2. Check the Thermostat – If your gas furnace is producing no heat, check the thermostat. Is it in heat mode? Make sure it has an appropriate temperature setting and try setting the thermostat up and down a few degrees.

3. Check the Pilot Light – Another possible cause for no heat is due to the pilot light going out. Be sure to check for the flame. If it is out, follow the instructions carefully to relight the pilot.

4. Check the Breaker – If your gas furnace is out of commission, check both the power switch (on or near the furnace) and the home breaker to make sure they are in the “on” position. This could save you a lot of time trying to figure out the issue when it could just be the power switch!
