Quick Checks To Make Before Calling An Irvine Heating Repair Service

In Irvine and throughout Southern California, and the air conditioner is used more often than a furnace or heating system. However, throughout December through February night temperatures can be in the mid-forties and it typically does not get above an average of 55 degrees at night until May. On these colder evenings, having a furnace or home heating system is important to stay comfortable.

When the furnace or heating system is not working, the first impulse for any Irvine homeowner is often to call the experts in HVAC repair at Home Comfort USA. However, before calling the professionals for heating repair service, a quick check of the basics may be all that is needed.

Check the Thermostat

It is very easy for the new smart systems to be easily changed on an app, sometimes without meaning to make the change. Even an older manual set thermostat can be accidentally adjusted.

Check to make sure the setting is correct and that any zone heating programs or settings have not been changed. With old, manual adjustment types of thermostats, make sure the setting has not been bumped or moved. Older styles of push-button or touch screen programmable thermostats may have a low battery, which simply needs to be replaced.

Check Power and Fuel Supply

Before calling the heating repair service make sure the furnace has power or a fuel source. Sometimes gas lines can be shut off, or electrical breakers can trip, and verifying the power and a fuel source is still on. It is also important to make sure any switches on the unit or the wall are in the “on” position.

Additionally, check to make sure there is nothing blocking the vent and the air intake to the furnace. If so, remove the blockage and start the furnace. If it does not come on immediately, call your heating repair service to find and fix the problem.
