Call it Murphy’s Law, or maybe just a little unluckiness, but we sometimes see heat pump issues in Troy during the colder seasons, when they’re necessary to keep you toasty. While you know the team at Edington Heating & Cooling Inc will always be there ASAP when you need us for a heat pump repair, there are some things you can do to ensure a repair is necessary and save yourself some money if it’s not. We’ve collected this checklist of things to test before you give us a call.
- It may sound strange, but make sure everything is set to “on”. We’ve been to numerous calls only to realize the thermostat or the heat pump itself is set to off.
If the heat pump still hasn’t switched on, return to your thermostat.
- Is the thermostat set to heat? If yes, raise the temperature by five degrees to check if it switches on.
- If everything looks right, test your heat pump switch (if it has one) and inspect the fuses and circuit breaker that shield the extra heating element (if it has one).
Is an obstruction causing your heat pump to breakdown?
- Try changing the battery, if it has one.
- Examine your air filters inside your air handler to ensure they’re not jamming things up.
- Are your room heating registers open and unobstructed?
If you’ve gone through this checklist and you still need a heat pump repair, call Edington Heating & Cooling Inc at 937-558-9478 and we’ll return your home back to the warm and cozy place you expect this time of year.
