Resetting Your Carrier Furnace

Sometimes, all your computer needs is a reboot. Older generations may remember removing their gaming cartridges and blowing the dust out of them. Resetting your Carrier furnace is not dissimilar in that sometimes all it needs is a little TLC. Resetting is a straightforward process that should help your furnace run with optimal performance and efficiency. Follow these easy steps:

Power Down Your Furnace:

Begin by turning off the power supply to your furnace. Locate the power switch on the unit or shut off the breaker from your electrical panel.

Locate the Reset Button:

Once the power is off, find the reset button on your furnace. It’s typically located near the burner compartment or on the control panel.

Hold the Reset Button:

Press and hold the reset button for approximately 30 seconds. This action will reset the furnace’s internal controls.

Allow System To Reset:

After holding the reset button, wait for a few minutes to allow the system to reset completely. This gives the furnace time to recalibrate and resume normal operation.

Verify the Furnace Is Working:

Once the reset process is complete, turn the power back on to your furnace. Monitor the system to ensure it starts up properly and operates without any issues.

Following these steps should help your Carrier furnace run efficiently and effectively, restoring comfort to your home in no time.
