Gas Furnace Trouble Shooting Guide

If you ever have trouble with your heating system, remember that you can always call Pharo Heating & Cooling for help or service; as we have 24 hour service, 365 days a year.  But here are some simple things to try before calling:

1.   Check to make sure that your thermostat is set to the “heat” position.

2.   Make sure that the temperature setting on the thermostat is set above

     the indoor temperature showing on the thermostat.

3.   Ensure that there is power to the furnace:

 ◦ Try turning the fan to the ‘On’ position using the switch on the thermostat dedicated to the fan to make sure you have power to the furnace. If the fan turns on, that means you have power.

4.   Check the circuit breaker or fuse at the electrical panel.

5.   Check the switch located on the side of your furnace. Is it turned ‘On’?

 Most furnaces will have a switch installed on the side of the furnace for service purposes.

6.   Has your furnace filter been changed recently?

Dirty filters can shut down the furnace due to not having enough air moving through the system.

7.   Check all return air grilles to make sure they are not blocked by


Your system needs to pull air from these returns in order to operate.  Blocking return grilles will also cost you efficiency as the equipment needs to work harder.

8.   Check all supply air registers to make sure the dampers are open and

     air is blowing.

 “Checking these items could save you a service call and who doesn’t like to save…?”
