Make sure power is getting to the furnace

Try this:

  • Check your home’s electrical panel. Flip the furnace’s circuit to “off” and then “on” again.
  • Look for a switch (like a light switch) near your furnace and make sure it is set to "on".

Before retrofitting my 2008 home for geothermal I talked to lots of folks already enjoying this wonderful ground source for heating and cooling. And then I searched for the right contractor to install it. I chose Gilbert Plumbing & Heating mainly because of their vast experience in this field and they have been with me every step of the way. The installation crews were great - professional and neat. The Gilbert business has been doing this for many years and they have all been a pleasure to work with. The current tax credits and rebates available made this decision easy. This is the best investment I have ever made!

The fellows who installed my new furnace were great; wasted no time and explained a lot of things to me that I wanted to know. They are very conscientious (even removing boots)... Thanks for a job well done and several more years of security.. I am a 67 year old widow and security means a whole lot to me.
