What To Do When the Heat Goes Out

Call it Murphy’s Law, or maybe just a little misfortune, but we sometimes see heat pump issues in Groves during the cooler months, when they’re necessary to keep you toasty. While you know the team at Air Solutions, Inc will always be there ASAP when you need us for a heat pump repair, there are some things you can do to double check a repair is important and save yourself some money if it’s not. We’ve gathered this checklist of things to try before you give us a call.

  1. It may sound ridiculous, but make sure everything is turned “on”. We’ve been to numerous calls only to discover the thermostat or the heat pump itself is switched off.
    • Check your thermostat to guarantee it’s on, switched to the correct temperature and isn’t set to cool.
    • Then try changing the battery, if it has one.
    • If everything looks right, check your furnace switch (check your manual if you’re not sure where it is) and inspect your fuses and circuit breaker.
    • Make sure your gas is on.
  2. If the furnace still hasn’t kicked on, go back to your thermostat.
    • If it’s a programmable model, make certain that it’s showing the correct time. If it thinks it’s morning when it’s in fact night, it may not switch your heat on because it doesn’t think you’re home.
  3. Is an impasse causing your furnace to breakdown?
    • Examine your air filters to confirm they’re not clogging things up.
    • Do you have any blocked ducts, vents or cool air entries?
    • Are all supply registers accessible?
    • Is your exhaust flue unobstructed?

If you’ve gone through this checklist and you’re still deprived of heat, call Air Solutions, Inc at 409-962-2476 or arrange an appointment online and we’ll get your home back to the welcoming and cozy place it should be.
