It breaks my heart to even ask, especially here, but if I’ve already put in a call to my ex about this, you know I haven’t any pride left. Here goes — I have a gas furnace no more than seven years old and it was last maintained/tuned up in 2010. I just went through a few hours of wondering why it wouldn’t kick on. When I realized it wasn’t, I first changed the batteries in the thermostat, then after another hour went down and stared at it for a while and noticed it was making blowing noises every few minutes like it was trying to kick on but couldn’t. As I’m writing this (Hallelujah!) it kicked on and blew out heat, but I’m scared.
It’s warm today in Chicago, for a January day, but does anyone know any reason why this would happen? Something I could fix myself so I’m not in trouble later on? I’m sorry to do this here, but if anyone has any ideas I’d appreciate hearing them. Thanks in advance.
