My name is Rodney with A-Team Services, and on this video we are going to be talking about central heating systems. A central heating system is the same thing as a furnace. It's what's going to be heating in your home in a residential application. Things that you could check to make sure that your heating system is working properly, is make sure that your pilot is lit. Some furnaces have pilots, some furnaces have electronic ignitions. You want to make sure that your filter is clean. Make sure your doors are on properly and make sure that you do have power going to the furnace. A lot of furnaces use a light switch, like a light in your home to turn on and off the furnace so we can work on it. Next to your furnace is going to be this light switch. Just make sure the light switch is on, you have power going to it. There should be a light inside the furnace you can check to make sure that the light is on inside the furnace. With that you know that you do have power, your doors are on properly, your gas is turned on and your filter is clean. At this point if you still do not have heat, at this point you're going to want to call your local heating and air contractor. Things that a local heating and air contractor would be able to check for you is make sure that the burners are operating properly, that the draft inducer motor is working, that the pressure switch is working correctly, that your limits and roll outs are all working properly. These are things that a homeowner is going to have a hard time checking without the proper tools.
