Here in Maple Grove, it gets cold. With temperatures dropping to as low as -22º F, you need a working furnace to fight back the freezing cold each winter. If your furnace decides to fail one unfortunate evening, we would consider that an emergency. Wouldn’t you?
Learn how to get your Maple Grove furnace back up and running in an emergency. We’ve compiled a few common fixes to help while you wait for a professional to arrive at your doorstep.
The Furnace Stopped — Now What?
Before you panic too much, start by calling a local HVAC technician for prompt furnace repairs. While you wait, here are a few tips and techniques that may help get your heating system running once more. There’s no time to hesitate with the encroaching Maple Grove winter outside your door.
- Thermostat — Start by inspecting the thermostat. Your system should be set to “heat”. If not, flip the switch over to kickstart the furnace. If that does not work, check the thermostat settings. It’s key to set the thermostat five degrees warmer than room temperature.
- Electrical — If messing about with the thermostat does not work, it’s time to check the electrical system. Many furnace problems stem from a lack of power. Check the circuit breaker or fuse for the furnace. Then, ensure the front panel of the blower motor is secure to activate the push switch.
- Filters — It is not uncommon for a furnace to simply cease because of a dirty filter. You should, ideally, swap out the filter once per month.
