Call it Murphy’s Law, or maybe just a little bad luck, but we sometimes see heat pump issues in Racine during the colder seasons, when they’re required to keep you warm. While you know the team at Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc will constantly 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 necessary and save yourself some expenses if it’s not. We’ve gathered this checklist of things to try before you give us a call.
- It may sound ridiculous, but make sure everything is turned “on”. We’ve been to several calls only to realize the thermostat or the heat pump itself is set to off.
If the heat pump still hasn’t kicked on, go back to your thermostat.
- Is the thermostat turned to heat? If yes, increase the temperature by five degrees to see if it kicks on.
- If everything looks correct, 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 a blockage causing your heat pump to fail?
- Try swapping the battery, if it has one.
- Inspect your air filters inside your air handler to confirm they’re not blocking things up.
- Are your room heating registers open and unbarred?
If you’ve moved through this checklist and you still need a heat pump fix, call Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc at 262-358-9468 and we’ll return your home back to the welcoming and cozy place you expect this time of year.
