There is a foot of snow outside and the whole town is shut down. Yay! It’s everyone’s favorite day: snow day! That is, of course, until you notice that no more hot air is coming from the vents and the temperature inside your cozy house starts dropping. Another layer of fleece gets thrown on as you go into panic mode. What are the first steps to take when you realize that your furnace isn’t powering on?
Check the large wall mounted switch as well as the circuit breaker. It might that the circuit has blown and needs to be reset or the fuse needs to be replaced.
The motor may have overloaded and needs to be reset. Look for the red reset button and reset… only once.
If the above steps are unsuccessful, contact JD Air to have a professional ensure that things are working properly. Keep in mind that the furnace shut down for a reason, so it would be wise to have one of our technicians take a look to avoid bigger problems from arising in the future.
