What To Do When the Heat Goes Out03/08/2017Call it Murphy’s Law, or maybe just a little bad luck, but we sometimes see heat pump problems in Litchfield Park during the cooler months, when they’re required to keep you toasty. While you know the team at Cooler Tymes LLC will always be there ASAP when you ask for us for a heat pump repair, there are some things you can do to double check a repair is important and save yourself some expenses if it’s not. We’ve collected this checklist of things to try before you give us a call. It may sound silly, but make sure everything is turned “on”. We’ve been to more than a few calls only to find the thermostat or the heat pump itself is set to off. Is the thermostat switched to heat? If yes, increase the temperature by five degrees to test if it switches on. If everything looks accurate, check your heat pump switch (if it has one) and check the fuses and circuit breaker that guard the extra heating element (if it has one). If the heat pump still hasn’t switched on, return to your thermostat. Try replacing the battery, if it has one. Is an obstruction causing your heat pump to breakdown? Inspect your air filters inside your air handler to ensure they’re not blocking things up. Are your room heating registers open and clear? If you’ve moved through this checklist and you still need a heat pump fix, call Cooler Tymes LLC at 623-206-6770 or set up an appointment up online and we’ll get your home back to the warm and cozy place you expect this time of year.
