Blinking Lights And Your Furnace
When your heater blinks a light at you, it’s like it’s trying to have a conversation in its own secret language. Each blink is a message, and decoding it can help you figure out what’s going on. Here’s a simple guide to understanding the blinking lights on your furnace:
Count the Blinking Lights:
The number of blinks often carries a message. Take note of how many times the light blinks in a row.
Check the Pattern of the Blinking Lights:
Is it a steady blink, or is there a specific pattern? Sometimes, the rhythm of the blinks is the key to understanding the message.
Refer to the Manual about the blinking lights and your furnace:
Your furnace’s manual is like its dictionary. It usually has a section that decodes the blinking light patterns. Look for a troubleshooting or diagnostic section in the manual. If you can’t find the manual for your furnace, look on the backside of the cover of your furnace as it may be placed there for easy reference. A sample is shown below
The internet is a treasure trove of information. If the manual is nowhere to be found, try searching online for your furnace’s make and model along with “blinking light codes.” You might find forums or guides with the information you need.

Remember, it’s like your furnace’s way of saying, “Hey, something’s up, but I’m trying to tell you what it is!” So, the next time your furnace blinks at you, consider it a little chat in its unique language, and you’ll be on your way to a warmer, cozier home.
