American Standard has been making durable and reliable gas furnaces since the late 1920s, and in that time they have become a trusted household name in the HVAC industry. As such, there’s a good chance you may even have an American Standard furnace keeping your home warm each winter, and this quick guide will answer common maintenance and repair questions and tell you how to keep your furnace working optimally for the years to come.

How to Replace Your Air Filter

There are some basic preventative maintenance steps you can take to keep your furnace running smoothly, keep your air quality high, and extend the life of your heating system. One of the most important tasks is replacing the air filter every one to three months, so here’s a breakdown of how to do that:

  1. Check the owner’s manual to find out what filter you need
  2. Buy a new filter
  3. Shut off the furnace or turn off the breaker box controlling it
  4. Check the right side of the unit to locate the filter
  5. Slide out the old filter and replace it with the new one
  6. Use the indicator arrows to make sure the filter is in the right way

Beyond cleaning the filters, there are also some other basic maintenance steps you can take in spring and fall to keep your furnace in tip-top shape:

  • Vacuum the furnace blower and fan blades
  • Clean the air vents and return vents
  • Inspect the vents for debris and remove any blockages

What’s Wrong With Your American Standard Furnace?

Even with proper maintenance and routine care, problems can still arise with your furnace. Knowing how to troubleshoot them will keep your family warm, save you on a visit from a repair technician, and could even prevent a problem from getting worse.

If you start to experience problems with your American Standard furnace, here are some troubleshooting steps that can help:

  1. Turn off the furnace or the breaker box
  2. Check the filter to make sure it’s clean, and replace it if necessary
  3. Inspect the furnace and vents for dirt and debris, and vacuum them if necessary
  4. Turn the furnace back on
  5. Check that the thermostat is set to Heat and set for higher than room temperature
  6. Check that the fan and blower fan (if applicable) are set to On
  7. Make sure the pilot light is lit (if your furnace has one)

American Standard Furnace Error Codes

Many furnace brands use error codes to indicate different problems with the systems, but American Standard uses furnace flash codes instead. The red LED light on the furnace will always be blinking steadily, and that indicates the unit is operating normally. But if the flashing is happening in a certain pattern, the number of flashes will give you an idea of what might be wrong:

When Should You Call A Professional?

Many problems are common with American Standard and other furnace brands, and while some don’t require the assistance of a certified technician, others do.

Some furnace issues will require professional help to diagnose the problem and come up with a solution that will fix it, including if the furnace is:

  • Blowing cold air and the thermostat wasn’t the cause
  • Not producing heat and it’s not a power issue
  • Making strange noises
  • Having trouble with keeping the pilot light lit
  • Emitting a gas odour
  • Cracked
  • Leaking
  • Building up soot

American Standard’s Warranty Coverage
