Shutting off the gas and electrical power to your Milwaukee HVAC system is critical before performing any Milwaukee furnace maintenance or furnace cleaning work. Take the following steps to safely turn off the gas and electrical feed to your HVAC system.
- TURN THE HVAC SYSTEM OFF – Cut the power by tripping the circuit breaker or removing your HVAC unit’s fuse. If you’re unsure which circuit the HVAC system is on, remove the main power fuse or trip the main breakers to shut down power to the entire facility.
- CUT THE HVAC SYSTEM’S GAS SUPPLY – Your Milwaukee HVAC system should have a gas shutoff valve located inside the furnace. Rotate the valve a quarter turn to the OFF position. If your HVAC system does not have its own gas shutoff valve, you’ll have to cut the gas supply to the entire property by turning off the main gas shutoff valve (usually located near the gas meter). Please note, only a certified Milwaukee heating contractor or other utility professional can safely and successfully restore your property’s gas supply.
