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 Port Saint Lucie during the winter time, when they’re required to keep you warm. While you know the team at Custom Air Systems Inc 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 cash if it’s not. We’ve gathered this checklist of things to test before you give us a call.

  1. It may sound ridiculous, but make sure everything is switched “on”. We’ve been to several calls only to realize the thermostat or the heat pump itself is set to off.
    • Is the thermostat switched to heat? If yes, boost the temperature by five degrees to test if it kicks on.
    • If everything looks correct, check your heat pump switch (if it has one) and check the fuses and circuit breaker that shield the extra heating element (if it has one).
  2. If the heat pump still hasn’t turned on, return to your thermostat.
    • Try replacing the battery, if it has one.
  3. Is a blockage causing your heat pump to breakdown?
    • Check 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 fix, call Custom Air Systems Inc at 772-335-3232 or set up an appointment up online and we’ll restore your home back to the welcoming and cozy place you expect this time of year.
