What To Do When the Heat Goes Out

Call it Murphy’s Law, or maybe just a little bad luck, but we sometimes see heat pump issues in Litchfield Park during the cooler months, when they’re needed the most 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 compiled this checklist of things to attempt before you give us a call.

  1. It may sound strange, but make sure everything is switched “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).
  2. If the heat pump still hasn’t switched on, go back to your thermostat.
    • Try replacing the battery, if it has one.
  3. Is an obstruction causing your heat pump to breakdown?
    • Check your air filters inside your air handler to confirm 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 repair, call Cooler Tymes LLC at 623-208-6444 and we’ll get your home back to the toasty and cozy place you expect this time of year.
