Being distressed about your comfort shouldn’t be something to stress about as seasons shift and temperatures drop in Fort Myers. It’s critical to remember that even as you transition from using your air conditioner to a furnace, both systems operate independently and should be managed as such so you can avoid AC and furnace repairs. After all, you don’t want to be confronted with your furnace going out in the course of the coldest part of winter.
We have mostly seen all that the Fort Myers weather can throw our way, and we’re here to make sure you’re prepared even when it seems like the weather can’t get any more unpredictable. We understand that if you’re calling us at 3 a.m., all you need is for your furnace to be fixed quickly, and accurately, the first time around so you can get back to having a safe home. That’s why our team of NATE-certified technicians is ready at any hour, day or night, to take control of any furnace repair you may require. Plus, our team has the knowledge and skill to repair your furnace regardless of the make, model or age. You can rest easy knowing that we can take care of any adversity that may come up.
Of course we also must say that we extremely recommend that you have annual furnace service completed so that you’re not stuck calling us in the middle of the night with a broken furnace. There are also a couple things that you can check yourself prior to calling us, so if you do end up calling, we’ll both be on the same page and know that these simple things have already been checked.
- Do you have the thermostat set to “heat”? – Once colder weather finally settles in for good, it can be common to forget that you need to have your thermostat turned over to “heat.” It happens a lot more often than you’d think, so be sure you double-check your thermostat and its setting.
- Is the furnace switch on? – Usually on the side of your furnace, the furnace switch looks like a normal light switch and should be flipped up, or on. If it’s not, flip the switch on, and once the built-in time delay period has gone by, your furnace will turn back on. The time delay is normally only a couple minutes.
- Have you changed your furnace filter? – Forgotten about more than people woud like to permit, furnace filters play a considerable role in the performance and efficiency of your system. There’s also a chance that it could prevent your furnace from functioning at all. Be sure to swap your furnace filter out every three months for optimal performance.
- Look at your circuit breaker – Another switch to check is your circuit breaker. If the breaker switch for your furnace is tripped, you can cycle it off and then back on. Doing so should allow the system to kick back on. If it doesn’t, give us a ring and we can work together to figure out what the complication is.
