When the furnace in your home or business stops producing heat, it can be a frustrating and potentially dangerous situation. However, before you call for professional help, there are a few steps you can take to try and fix the problem yourself. Here are the steps you should take for repairing a non-heating furnace:

Step 1: Check the Thermostat The first thing you should check when your furnace is not producing heat is the thermostat. Make sure that it is set to the correct temperature and that the switch is set to “heat.” If the thermostat is on the correct setting, try changing the batteries in the thermostat.

Step 2: Check the Circuit Breaker If the thermostat appears to be functioning properly, the next step is to check the circuit breaker. The furnace may have tripped the circuit breaker, so check to see if the breaker switch is in the “off” position. If it is, turn it to the “on” position.

Step 3: Check the Air Filter A dirty air filter can cause a furnace to stop producing heat. Check the air filter and replace it if it appears to be dirty.

Step 4: Check the Pilot Light If the furnace has a pilot light, make sure that it is lit. If the pilot light is out, refer to the furnace’s manual for instructions on relighting it.

Step 5: Check for Gas Leaks If none of the above steps have solved the problem, it is possible that there is a gas leak. Before calling for professional help, check for any unusual smells, such as the smell of gas. If you suspect a gas leak, turn off the gas to the furnace and call a professional immediately.
