Furnace Tips by Treat’s Heating & Cooling

There are times when a furnace doesn’t have any symptoms before things go wrong.  The most frustrating problem is when the furnace won’t turn on at all.  Treat’s Heating & Cooling will give you some tips on what to look for before calling us for service.

  • Check that your thermostat is set to “Heat”
  • Check & change your filter if it is dirty, sometimes debris gets in the system if you don’t have a clean filter or the wrong size filter.
  • Raise the temperature on the thermostat until you hear it click if the room is several degrees below the thermostat or the thermostat doesn’t click, you can start troubleshooting the furnace.
  • Is the pilot light lit? A standing pilot light should be visible when you open the combustion chamber door. If the pilot light is out, it must be re-lit. You can call Treat’s Heating & Cooling and have a technician come and re-light the pilot for you.If you have tried all of these methods and your furnace still isn’t turning on call Treat’s Heating & Cooling at 360.825.0800  We have been in business for over 40 years and have skilled technicians that will serve your heating needs.The Black Diamond, WA furnace experts at Treat’s Heating & Cooling offer high quality installation, repair, maintenance, and other heating and air conditioning services throughout Western Washington including Enumclaw, Buckley, Bonney Lake, Sumner, Puyallup, Tacoma, Auburn, Black Diamond, Covington, Maple Valley, Federal Way, Kent, & Seattle WA.
