It’s cold outside, so you need to turn the heat on! But what do you do if your furnace won’t turn on?
It’s easy to panic when this happens, but do not worry. Instead, follow this checklist to see if you can locate the issue and get it back on quickly. Oftentimes, our customers in Manassas end up figuring out the issue before ever needing to call for our help!
However, if these don’t solve your problem, give Turner’s Service Company a call! We’ll get your heat back on in no time!
There are two places to check to see if your furnace has power. First, make sure that the power switch near the unit is not switched to “off”. This could happen accidentally. If the power switch is on, next check your circuit breaker or fuse box to make sure the furnace circuit is also on.
Next, try testing your thermostat. First of all, make sure that it’s on and that the batteries are still working. If it’s a programmable model, make sure that the system is still set up and functioning. Finally, turn it up to make sure that the heat is actually turning to what the thermostat is set at.
The drain pan is where all the moisture from your HVAC system is collected. It should empty on its own, but if it does not, the system may shutdown to avoid flooding. Check to see if the drain pan is full of water, if the drain is clear, and if the trigger mechanism is working.
Check your property’s gas or oil line. Make sure that everything is on the “on” position and see if the other appliances that rely on the fuel source are working. If they are not, contact your local utility company. If they are, it’s likely a furnace issue.
Make sure that the pilot light is on and looks normal and has a typical flame. If the pilot light is a strange color or there is no light, you can relight it yourself to get it started again. Or, Turner’s Service Company is happy to come do it for you.

Friendly and courteous, went beyond the initial problem to check all factors that may have contributed to my heating issue. Joe took several extra steps to isolate the issue and spent the necessary time to check all factors, from thermostat to element.
