You probably don’t want to think about it, however the cold weather will be here in a matter of weeks. You might be gearing up for this eventually by purchasing a new winter coat or considering whether those snow boots will last another season. But have you thought about testing your heating system before the cold weather comes?
Testing your heating system to make sure it’s working the properly is easy and only takes a few minutes, so whay not give it a try NOW! After-all the middle of the winter is no time to discover you have no heat!
Simply follow these steps to make sure your boiler or furnace is working properly:
1. Check that the emergency switch is in the “on” position and turn up the thermostat at least 10 degrees higher than the actual room temperature.
2. Next, listen carefully. Within a few minutes you should hear your heating equipment start up.
3. If the equipment doesn’t start up, press the reset button on your burner’s relay. Press it just once.
This will indicate if your heating system will start up when the temperature drops!
