If your furnace will not turn off, there’s no reason to panic. There are a few things you can do to shut off the system. After you’ve completed those tasks, you’ll want to call a professional heating company for a home visit. A trained technician will find the source of your heating problem.

Furnace Issues

If your system won’t shut off, then this is a telltale sign that something is wrong. There are a few reasons for such a problem. The thermostat is usually the most common cause of this issue. Inside the thermostat, there are many switches, wires, and sensors that can fail. In any case, the thermostat will need to be replaced with a new unit. The primary controller can fail as well. This component acts as the main heating element for your system. Once it stops functioning, the system won’t regulate the temperature. If your furnace uses a water heater to warm your home, then there may be an issue with a broken valve. You’ll want to call an experienced technician to your home to fix any of these issues.

You Can Shut Off Your System

To prevent further damage, you’ll want to shut off the furnace. Many people try to do this by raising the thermostat’s temperature. In most cases, this will work. If that still doesn’t turn off your furnace, then you can shut down the power. You can find the power switch located near the main furnace unit. Once you’ve completed these steps, you should schedule a service call with a heating company.
