What To Do When the Heat Goes Out

Repair

Call it Murphy’s Law, or maybe just a little misfortune, but we sometimes see heat pump problems in Huntsville during the cooler months, when they’re necessary to keep you warm. While you know the team at All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc 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 try before you give us a call.

  1. It may sound silly, but make sure everything is turned “on”. We’ve been to several calls only to realize the thermostat or the heat pump itself is switched off.
    • Check your thermostat to make sure it’s on, switched to the appropriate temperature and isn’t switched 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 hesitant about where it is) and check your fuses and circuit breaker.
    • Confirm that your gas is on.
  2. If the furnace still hasn’t switched on, return to your thermostat.
    • If it’s a programmable model, confirm that it’s revealing the proper time. If it thinks it’s morning when it’s actually night, it may not switch your heat on because it doesn’t think you’re home.
  3. Is a blockage causing your furnace to breakdown?
    • Examine your air filters to make sure they’re not blocking things up.
    • Do you have any blocked ducts, vents or cool air intakes?
    • Are all supply registers open?
    • Is your exhaust flue open?

If you’ve moved through this checklist and you’re still without heat, call All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc at 256-801-4701 or set up an appointment online and we’ll get your home back to the welcoming and cozy place it should be.
