Before you do anything to your furnace, you should always ensure the power is off. Whether it’s from the breaker or from the switch on the wall.

This is extremely dangerous because every situation is different and will only apply to specific types of furnaces. In addition, you can even burn your home or building to the ground by making a mistake. Therefore, Contact the professionals and have them do the job that they are trained to do.
