Why Isn’t My Heater Working?

Did you know that the lowest recorded temperature in Raleigh, NC, was -9 degrees Fahrenheit? This was back in 1985, but it doesn’t mean it won’t happen again, and when it does, will your heating unit be ready to keep you warm?

There’s nothing worse than walking into your house only to find that it’s just as chilly inside as it was outside. When this happens, you’ll want to figure out what’s wrong with your heater right away, so you can restore the flow of hot air as soon as possible.

Keep reading for advice on how to troubleshoot your heater problems.

Step 1

Check the furnace filter. Ideally, you should change your air filters every two to three months to keep the air inside of your home clean. However, if there was a recent fire or more pollution than usual, you may need to switch it out sooner than you would have expected.

Step 2

Check the thermostat. Make sure it’s on the right setting. Your HVAC unit might sound like it’s running, but if it’s set to cool or to fan, then you won’t be getting the result you intended.

Next, make sure there’s nothing near your thermostat that could be producing heat. This will trick your thermostat into thinking it’s warmer than it actually is, which will cause it to shut off before the house is actually at your desired temperature.

Step 3
