Can You Restart A Furnace?

Tips For Rebooting A Furnace

There may come a time when your furnace unexpectedly shuts down or fails to operate to standard. In such instances, knowing how to safely restart your furnace can be invaluable.

As a leader in HVAC services here in Winder, Absolute Comfort Air is here to guide you through the process of restarting your furnace. Whether you’re dealing with a malfunction or simply need guidance on how to handle your unit, we’ll walk you through it so you can keep your furnace in its best shape.

How To Restart A Furnace

With a little know-how, it can be quite easy to restart a gas furnace. Even so, you should follow procedures and take care when operating your system. Homeowners rely greatly on these machines and mistreating them will cost you. In turn, a well-maintained heater will make your life easier and much more comfortable.

Step 1: Turn Off The System

Locate the power switch near the furnace and turn it off. This is a crucial safety step before attempting any kind of reset or repair.

Step 2: Find And Use The Reset Button

Most furnaces have a reset button — usually red or yellow — located inside the blower compartment. Press this button once. After waiting a few minutes, turn the power switch back on. If the reset button is not working, there may be a deeper issue at hand.

You should move on to the following steps if restarting the unit doesn’t solve the problem you’re experiencing.

Step 3: Check The Thermostat

Ensure the thermostat is set to “heat” and the temperature setting is higher than the current room temperature. Sometimes, the problem is as simple as incorrect thermostat settings. The thermostat could also be experiencing a dead battery or wiring issue. Some of these more technical problems will require a professional repair.

Step 4: Inspect The Gas Supply

If you have a gas furnace, check the gas supply valve to ensure it’s in the open position. A closed gas valve will prevent the unit from operating.

Step 5: Consider Calling A Professional

While restarting your heater can be a straightforward process, there are times when professional intervention is necessary. If you’ve attempted to restart your furnace without success, or if you notice any of the following, it’s worth calling in the experts:

  • Persistent unusual noises
  • Frequent cycling on and off
  • The smell of gas or other unusual odors
  • The furnace reset button not working consistently

Even if your furnace problem ends up being minor, it’s hard to know for sure without professional input. The quickest way to get the issue resolved is by calling in Absolute Comfort Air to take care of it with efficiency.

When Should You Restart Your Furnace?

Furnaces are no stranger to technical problems, so it’s always a good idea to check that yours is working properly. Sometimes that means restarting the unit to see if there’s a serious issue. You should consider restarting your heater if you’re experiencing any of the following:

  • The unit is not producing heat
  • Your system is cycling on and off more frequently than usual
  • Strange noises are coming from the furnace

The first step in fixing problems with your furnace is identifying them. This removes uncertainty and makes it easier for you and any technician to resolve it fast.
