Call it Murphy’s Law, or maybe just a little bad luck, but we sometimes see heat pump troubles in Greensburg during the winter time, when they’re needed the most to keep you warm. While you know the team at Wallpe Heating & Cooling will constantly be there ASAP when you require us for a heat pump repair, there are some things you can do to ensure a repair is important and save yourself some cash if it’s not. We’ve compiled this checklist of things to test before you give us a call.
- It may sound strange, but make sure everything is switched “on”. We’ve been to more than a few calls only to find the thermostat or the heat pump itself is set to off.
If the heat pump still hasn’t turned on, return to your thermostat.
- Is the thermostat set to heat? If yes, raise the temperature by five degrees to see if it turns on.
- If everything looks right, inspect 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).
Is a blockage causing your heat pump to fail?
- Try changing the battery, if it has one.
- Check your air filters inside your air handler to ensure they’re not jamming things up.
- Are your room heating registers open and unbarred?
If you’ve moved through this checklist and you still need a heat pump repair, call Wallpe Heating & Cooling at 812-663-7252 and we’ll return your home back to the warm and cozy place you expect this time of year.
