"It is highly recommended that you have your furnace cleaned and checked every year. The older the furnace, the more important this service is. Newer gas furnaces are equipped with many features that shut the furnace off when a problem is detected. Older furnaces have no such devices. Over time, furnaces can develop small cracks in the combustion chamber. These cracks may not be visible to the naked eye. It is through these cracks that carbon monoxide can leak into your home."

Here are some things to check for when your furnace doesn’t seem to be heating or working correctly:
Is your system blowing cold air?
Is the Thermostat not working? Make sure to try to change the batteries in the thermostat
Is the Furnace making a loud noise? Will the Pilot light not stay lit? It may need to be cleaned. You will probably need maintenance performed. Some of the most common air conditioning problems that can easily be remedied by any homeowner:
If your air conditioner is running, but your home just doesn’t seem to get cool enough, check to see if there is ice forming on the outside air conditioning unit. This is usually caused by a dirty air filter or the outside unit or outside vents becomes clogged with yard debris. If there's ice present, turn off your a/c and allow it to thaw check air filter and outside unit and vents for debris.
Check to see if the thermostat switch is set to the proper position for cooling.
Make sure the set-point is below the room temperature. Check the "cool" setting, you might be have the fan running but no cold air. If your thermostat is set too high, it's not going to provide enough cool air to keep you
Check the furnace settings and make sure the furnace power switch is in the on position. The reason being is that the air conditioner needs the furnace to circulate the air.
Check the furnace filter. It should be changed every three months. If it’s dirty change it now.
Finally, check that the air-conditioning disconnect or breaker has been turned on. If you know how to check the circuits, see if any are blown.
If your air conditioner still does not provide the cool air you need, it might be time to call for professional AC repair.
