Do I need a Furnace Repair?

What to Do if your Furnace Stops Working

"My furnace is broke." What do I do now?


This is something that tragically occurs to millions of people every year. When the heat is not working in your home, that can be a very unpleasant scenario for more reasons than one.


You will have to figure out how to get a home furnace repair. Gas furnace repairs can be a pain to homeowners, to repair a gas furnace it can cost thousands of dollars and take a very long time for the technician to come out to your home and finish the furnace repair.  In addition to troubleshooting a gas furnace, often times it takes extra maintenance to the different areas of your home to fix a furnace that is not turning on. If your house heater is not working, you may want to consider putting off a heat repair mission for a bit if you can, at least until you find the right person to fix it. Otherwise, it is sure to cost you, your wallet and home.


So, there is a way to put off a furnace repair?


While your house drops in temperature, there is a much easier way to keep your home at the right temperature. Infrared heat is known to be an amazing substitute for a gas furnace that is not working. Infrared heat works very similarly to the way heat from the sun heats us up. The heat is not absorbed into the air directly, the infrared heat travels from object to object in the room to heat everything evenly, safely, and efficiently.


The Proper Air Jet Series-1 Infrared Space Heater & Cooler is the best on the market and is sure to keep your home warm while your furnace is not running. This heater will give you the satisfaction of having a cozy temperature in your home with its jam-packed benefits. Just to name a few; it has a long-range remote, tip over AND over heat protection shut off, bladeless fan for safety of children and pets, a 12-hour timer, LED touchpad panel, oscillation, oh… and did we mention it is also a fan for year-round use? Yup, doesn’t get much better than that! So, save yourself the hassle and get yourself one while your furnace is out.


This will give you time to ask these questions.

If you are finding yourself asking any of these questions it could be time to look for an alternative option to heating your home while you figure out exactly why your furnace quit working.


Some common things to look for that may be an issue with your broken furnace, or why it may not be heating up.


1) If your central heating is not working, try resetting the circuit or making sure it is actually turned on.

2) Make sure there is no debris clogging the furnace or keeping the ignition from working.

3) Check the vents to make sure nothing is blocking them.


We know how frustrating it can be when a house furnace is not blowing out warm air in the winter. Beyond it being frustrating, it can be dangerous to lose that much heat in the house. When the heating is not working, odds are you will have to find a good deal on servicing a furnace, unless you can do a DIY furnace repair. This can cost so much money and take too long. You need heat now. You will love a infrared heater fan that will give you year-round use for many years.

Thank you for explaining that you should check the vents if you’re having problems with heating up your home. We had this problem towards the end of last winter. I’ll be sure to check this out and see if clearing this up before winter starts to set in will help take care of this problem.

You must call a qualified technician if you have problems with your heating or cooling system. Often, a homeowner can fix minor issues, but if the problem is more severe or beyond their abilities, they should call a professional. Here are some options for who to contact in these situations:

HVAC technicians – These professionals are skilled in repairing and maintaining heating and cooling systems. They can recommend the best course of action depending on the situation.

Homeowner’s insurance: If you cannot fix the issue yourself and your homeowner’s insurance does not cover repairs, they may be able to work with a contractor or specialist to help get the job done.

Local hardware store: Sometimes, small repairs can be done at a hardware store without requiring any particular expertise.

The other day, my brother told me something happened to his furnace, and now it won’t turn on. I’m glad you explained why you’ll spend more money if you try to repair your furnace DIY-style, so I’ll share your tips with my brother before he tries it. Thanks for the intake on identifying a faulty furnace.

If you’re experiencing problems with your furnace, it might be because of a blown a fuse. The most common reason for a blown a fuse is improper installation. First, check if wires are tucked behind the wall or cover plates in the furnace area. If so, you’ll need to remove those covers and repair or replace the wiring.

Another common problem is a clogged filter. First, check to see if there’s any debris in the ducts leading from the furnace to the outside air intake. If so, use a shop vacuum cleaner to clear out all the dust and debris before trying to reset the filter.
