Call it Murphy’s Law, or maybe just a little misfortune, but we sometimes see heat pump problems in Tucker during the cooler months, when they’re needed the most to keep you toasty. While you know the team at ACS Heating and Air Conditioning will forever be there ASAP when you need us for a heat pump repair, there are some things you can do to confirm that a repair is necessary and save yourself some cash if it’s not. We’ve collected this checklist of things to attempt before you give us a call.
- It may sound silly, but make sure everything is switched “on”. We’ve been to more than a few calls only to discover the thermostat or the heat pump itself is switched off.
If the heat pump still hasn’t turned on, go back to your thermostat.
- Is the thermostat set to heat? If yes, raise the temperature by five degrees to see if it switches on.
- If everything looks right, test your heat pump switch (if it has one) and test the fuses and circuit breaker that guard the extra heating element (if it has one).
Is a blockage causing your heat pump to fail?
- Try replacing the battery, if it has one.
- Inspect your air filters inside your air handler to make sure they’re not blocking things up.
- Are your room heating registers open and unobstructed?
If you’ve worked through this checklist and you still need a heat pump repair, call ACS Heating and Air Conditioning at 770-450-1539 and we’ll restore your home back to the warm and cozy place you expect this time of year.
