What to Do If Your Furnace Goes Out

Last updated 7 years ago

Winter temperatures in Las Vegas can drop into the mid-thirties.  The last thing you want is for your furnace to go out when you need it the most. It is important to schedule routine maintenance with your Las Vegas Heating company to ensure the efficiency and longevity of your heater. Found out too late? Consider these tips on what to do if your furnace goes out.


When your furnace stops working, the first step is to assess the problem. If you own a traditional furnace, them check to see if the pilot light has gone out; if it has, most models 10-15 years old can be relit with a gas lighter or match. If the pilot light is not the problem, try turning the power off for five minutes and allow the system to reset. It is possible that your system could have been tripped or blew the circuit breaker. Turn the unit back and see if the problem is resolved.

Minimize Heat Loss

If you are unable to fix the problem yourself or are taking a considerable amount of time to complete the project, then you will want to begin conserving the heat already in your home. Try to keep doors and windows closed to prevent the heat from escaping while your heater or HVAC is not working. You may also want to compensate by adding portable or space heaters.

Call in the Professionals

Don’t make the situation worse by tinkering around with unfamiliar technology. If you are unable to locate or repair the problem, then consider contacting your Las Vegas heating or HVAC company for a free quote. A licensed Las Vegas refrigeration company will not only assess and fix the damage, but can also provide energy-efficient replacement options in the event your unit is unfixable.
