As they say, the right answer often tends to be the straight-forwardst, or most obvious, and when you’re having problems with your iPad at home, what’s your first instinct? Aside from hitting the thing, you very would have the impulse to shutdown before starting it back up, coincidentally, I’ve been able to service many problems by simply powering the iPad down plus turning it back on, however the same thing applies to a wealth of other technological gadgets as well as appliances, including the ever-important, heat-providing electric gas furnace! I came to this conclusion last winter, when my gas furnace was giving less and less heat by the morning before finally stopping all functions! Afraid that my electric gas furnace finally bit the dust, I frantically searched online for ways to suddenly check to see if the electric gas furnace is easily broken beyond repair. The first idea was indeed the most straight-forward: shut off power to the gas furnace for several to 3 hours, then turn the power back on! I thought it surely couldn’t be that simple, so I kept studying. The next step for checking out the gas furnace is to inspect the air filter itself, which was almost guaranteed to be in need of updatement. With these many tips in mind, I went downstairs to cut power to the gas furnace. While the gas furnace was off, I pulled the air filter out of its place and shocked by the amount of debris jammed into the thing! Thankfully I had a box of air filters resting beside the gas furnace, as they were on sale at the local hardware store. After I updated and fixed the air filter, about 3 hours had passed, so I turned the gas furnace back on, however i wish I could’ve seen the look of my face, as that gas furnace came back from the dead and filled my lake house with warm air in hours!
