5 Furnace Troubleshooting Tips
Reliance™ has been keeping Canadian homes comfortable for more than 60 years. Our team of local furnace professionals are friendly, efficient, and ready to help, no matter where you live in Saskatoon.

Some heating problems are easy to fix. Here are five things to check if your furnace isn’t blowing warm air into your home. They may just save you cost and inconvenience of an unnecessary call.

  1. Make sure your thermostat is set to ‘heat’. It’s an easy mistake to make, and an even easier one to correct!
  2. Go to your furnace and look for the disconnect switch. It should be located on the side of the unit or on a nearby wall. This switch can sometimes get turned off by accident if something is leaned up against it. Check the switch and make sure it’s in the ‘on’ position.
  3. Go to your home’s breaker panel and look for the breaker marked ‘furnace.’ Check that it is in the correct position.
  4. Go outside and locate your furnace air vents. They lead from the exterior of your home to your heating system. If they are blocked by snow, slush, or other debris your furnace may not work properly. A thorough air vent inspection should be left to an HVAC professional.
  5. Try to remember when you last changed your furnace filter. A filter that is dirty may cause your unit to underperform. In general, your furnace filter should be changed or cleaned every three months or according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. If you’re not sure what type of filter is best for your unit, or how to change your filter, ask your Reliance™ furnace expert for help.

Common Furnace FAQs

What is the difference between a furnace and a boiler?
A furnace keeps your home cozy by distributing warm air through the ductwork. A boiler heats a liquid – water or glycol – which is then pumped to radiators, radiant heating, or fan coils located throughout your home.

How does my furnace produce warm air?
Your furnace ignites fuel in a combustion chamber that heats up heat exchanger coils. When air is drawn across these coils it is warmed up. This warm air is then delivered to the rooms in your home through the ductwork.

Can a new furnace help me reduce my home heating bills?
Yes, investing in a modern high efficiency condensing furnace may help you save on your energy bills without compromising warmth. Your Home Comfort Advisor can help you choose the right furnace for your home and budget. At Reliance™ you always have the option to rent or buy.

Here are a few more tips that may help you conserve energy and save:

  • Invest in a programmable thermostat so you can monitor and control your energy use.
  • Seal any leaking windows to reduce heat loss.
  • Consider replacing old windows.
  • Make sure your basement and attic are well-insulated. Add more insulation if necessary.

A professional energy auditor can help you identify opportunities to conserve energy. You may qualify for government rebates to help cover the costs.

What is a high-efficiency furnace?
A high-efficiency furnace is a furnace that has an AFUE rating of 92% to 98%. Many high efficiency furnaces use smart technology so you can monitor and control your energy consumption.

What is a whole home humidifier?
A whole home humidifier works to keep the humidity levels in your home stable, regardless of the season. Maintaining a constant level of humidity may help your furnace work more efficiently and can promote healthy air inside your home.

Can I maintain my furnace myself?
Your furnace unit should only be opened by a licensed HVAC technician. Most homeowners are not qualified to service or repair their home heating system, but there are a few things you can do to keep things running smoothly:

  • Change or clean your furnace filter four times a year, or according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
  • Do not place furniture or other items on top of your heating vents or radiators.
  • Keep you heating vents or radiators dust free.
  • Create a clear space around your furnace or boiler.
  • Have your furnace or boiler professionally serviced every year.

When should I call in a furnace expert?
It’s a good idea to seek the advice of an HVAC professional if you notice any of the following:

  • No warm air coming from your air vents.
  • Water leaking from your furnace unit.
  • Unusual sounds coming from your furnace unit.
  • A sudden increase in your home heating bills.
  • An unusual amount of dust in your home.
