Pre-service call checklist:

Okay, you’re pretty sure that you need our help—but you don’t want to have overlooked something simple that could be causing your issue. No problem, here’s a quick list to double check.

  • Check the thermostat and ensure it is set to “heat,” and check the temperature setting to ensure it is set above the current home temperature.
  • Check the thermostat display for a blinking “replace battery” indicator alerting you to the need for new batteries.
  • Ensure the air filter is relatively clean. If dirty/plugged, clean/change the filter and reset the furnace by turning the power off and back on. If you need a new filter, we do have the common sizes available at our office.
  • Ensure the electrical shut-off switch on the side of the furnace is “on”.
  • Check the breaker box for a tripped breaker. If tripped, reset. If it flips back off, don’t try to reset it again and give us a call.
  • Ensure the utility company hasn’t shut your gas off at the gas meter (you’ll see a lock on it if so).
  • Ensure an earthquake shut-off switch on the gas line near the gas meter hasn’t tripped shutting the gas off to the home. This often occurs when someone bumps the meter when they were putting a garbage can back or mowing the lawn. There is a button on the EQ shut-off switch you can push to reset it.
  • Check to be sure the manual gas shut-off valve on the gas pipe feeding the furnace has its handle parallel with the gas pipe (parallel is in the “on” position). If the valve is perpendicular to the gas pipe, it is off. You will most likely find that it is parallel with the pipe, but if someone was working near or on the furnace, they may have shut the gas off and forgot to turn it back on.

If you don’t feel comfortable checking some of the above, don’t fret! We’re happy to take care of these and more for you in an effort to resolve your furnace problem. Give us a call (425) 885-1224.
