Assuming you need a professional to fix whatever’s wrong
If none of those issues are at play, you may simply need a system reset. While the directions for your unit should be found inside its access panel, it’s common to have to cut power to the unit, shut off gas flow, and wait a few minutes before turning the gas and power back on. It’s the HVAC equivalent of “Have you turned it off and turned it back on again?” Just like computers, this simple process has a tendency to work wonders – although a repairman may be better suited to do it if you don’t have much experience working with HVAC equipment.
Assuming you need a new furnace
A new, energy efficient furnace is great for utility bills, and they often get subsidized by state governments wanting to promote Energy Star initiatives. Your HVAC provider can give you more information on new units if you want one. However, quite often, all you need is the repair or replacement of a few parts to get back up and running.
A reputable business will let you know the difference, but there are people out there determined to get the most money they can out of their clients. If a technician gets pushy, it’s time to call in a second opinion.
