What to do BEFORE you call us or ANY heating service provider

If your system fails to heat properly, we ask that you check the following before calling us for service assistance:

CHECK your thermostat to be sure it’s set above room temperature.
CHECK that the Emergency switch is in the “on” position
CHECK to see if all fuses are in operating condition
CHECK the gauge on your fuel tank to be certain there is fuel in the tank.
CHECK that the Reset button is pressed ONLY ONCE.

If your heat still fails to work, it’s time to call us.
