What To Do When the Heat Goes Out

Repair

Call it Murphy’s Law, or maybe just a little unluckiness, but we sometimes see heat pump problems in Osceola County during the cooler months, when they’re needed the most to keep you comfortable. While you know the team at Osceola Air, LLC will constantly be there ASAP when you require 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 compiled this checklist of things to attempt before you give us a call.

  1. It may sound silly, but make sure everything is turned “on”. We’ve been to numerous calls only to realize the thermostat or the heat pump itself is set to off.
    • Is the thermostat set to heat? If yes, boost the temperature by five degrees to test if it turns on.
    • If everything looks right, test your heat pump switch (if it has one) and test the fuses and circuit breaker that protect the extra heating element (if it has one).
  2. If the heat pump still hasn’t kicked on, go back to your thermostat.
    • Try replacing the battery, if it has one.
  3. Is an impasse causing your heat pump to breakdown?
    • Examine 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 gone through this checklist and you still need a heat pump fix, call Osceola Air, LLC at 407-908-8651 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.
