When you need a furnace repair in Independence, MO, AFC Heating and Cooling offers 24-hour emergency repair service when things go wrong.
What Do I Do if My Furnace is Not Working Properly?
A few quick checks include:
- Checking the power source to your furnace
- Making sure the system is turned on
- Venturing outside to see whether something is blocking the intake or exhaust
- Visually inspecting the thermostat setting
- Replacing thermostat batteries as needed
- Replacing the system filter as indicated by the manufacturer
How Long Should It Take for My Furnace to Kick On?
You should hear an audible response from your furnace within 5 minutes of setting the thermostat. While a longer time may seem normal with your furnace, the fact is that over time, your system may have become less efficient, especially if it's been some time since you've called a technician for a maintenance visit. We recommend our customers schedule pre-winter maintenance checks to avoid breakdowns and more costly repairs. At AFC Heating and Cooling, we offer Preventive Maintenance Agreements on old or new equipment, which is backed by 24-hour emergency repair service just in case.
Why Won't My Thermostat Shut Off?
If your fan’s control is set to AUTO and the system's fan won't shut off, try turning the dial to the 'off' position and wait a minute or two to see if the fan will turn off. Fans that run continuously require the attention of a service technician to look for a short in the thermostat wiring or to check for other problems. AFC Heating and Cooling is on call day or night when you notice issues with your furnace that do not respond to troubleshooting tips. We'll be happy to come out and make sure your system is operating correctly and safely.
