What do you do if you wake up at 2AM and the heating unit is out? The home is cold and you’re standing there in the midst of the night with no other resource of heat.

( 1) Check the regulator:
Many modern regulators run of batteries. If the batteries go out, the heating unit is not going to get the signal to switch on. Changing batteries is easy to forget and, fortunately, easy to remedy. Change the batteries and see if the heating system starts.
( 2) Check the filter:
If the heating system is running full blast, but you are only getting a bit of heat emerging, you may need to change the filtering system. A blocked filter stops the free flow of air in and out of the furnace, which causes the flow of heated air to decrease significantly. Check the furnace filter and change it if it’s clogged.
( 3) Check the circuit breaker:
Almost all furnaces are on a separate circuit tied into your breaker box. If the breaker trips, it will stop the furnace from functioning. Verify that the breaker is on. If it’s tripped, turn it fully off, then back on again. If the breaker stays in place, the furnace should start up. If it doesn’t, give us a call.
