Call it Murphy’s Law, or maybe just a little misfortune, but we sometimes see heat pump issues in Laurel during the colder seasons, when they’re necessary to keep you warm. While you know the team at H&C Heating and Cooling will always 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 needed and save yourself some money if it’s not. We’ve compiled this checklist of things to try before you give us a call.
- It may sound strange, but make sure everything is set to “on”. We’ve been to more than a few calls only to discover the thermostat or the heat pump itself is set to off.
If the heat pump still hasn’t switched on, revisit your thermostat.
- Is the thermostat set to heat? If yes, boost the temperature by five degrees to check if it kicks on.
- If everything looks right, check your heat pump switch (if it has one) and inspect the fuses and circuit breaker that guard the extra heating element (if it has one).
Is a blockage causing your heat pump to not work?
- Try swapping the battery, if it has one.
- Examine your air filters inside your air handler to make sure they’re not clogging things up.
- Are your room heating registers open and unbarred?
If you’ve gone through this checklist and you still need a heat pump fix, call H&C Heating and Cooling at 301-960-3247 and we’ll restore your home back to the warm and cozy place you expect this time of year.
