Whether you own a furnace, heat pump, boiler, or any other type of heating system, these machines are very important. Without this equipment working hard for your family every single day, it would be challenging to stay comfortable.

While these systems work tirelessly to keep our homes warm, they can run into problems at some point. If your heating system simply won’t power on, this is a common problem you’re experiencing. Luckily, there are some simple troubleshooting tips. Keep reading to learn more about how to fix this troubling system issue.

Check the Thermostat 

It seems basic, but you’d be surprised how many people discover that their thermostat was the source of the issue. In certain models, dead or dying batteries in the device can cause your system to go haywire or not respond. Your thermostat might also not be receiving power due to a tripped circuit breaker.

Check The Thermostat Settings

Someone in the household might have unknowingly changed the settings, or the thermostat might have reset itself due to a glitch.

Most contemporary thermostats come with two main options in their settings:

Auto: This setting will “tell” your system to heat air and run the fan whenever your home drops below the designated temperature on the thermostat. Using “auto” has the potential to save you the most on your energy bills.

On: This setting is going to keep your system’s fan running continuously, even when your heater isn’t actively warming air. If your system is running, but you feel cold air coming out of your vents, your system is probably set to “on.” You may want to adjust the temperature or switch to “auto.”

Change The Air Filter

It’s recommended by most HVAC companies to replace your air filters every 90 days. Dirty filters can cause numerous heater problems, including weak airflow, reduced heating power, and overheating equipment. If your heater’s components get too hot, the system may have an automatic shut-off switch that shuts the equipment down to prevent irreversible damage.

Check The Circuit Breakers

Even if you own a gas- or oil-burning heating system, there is some part of it that relies on electricity. Go to your home’s circuit breaker panel, and check for any circuit breakers that may have tripped. If you have a heat pump, there will be a circuit breaker for the outside unit and another circuit breaker for the inside unit. If any of the switches have tripped, reset them.
