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 issues in Fort Pierce during the cooler months, when they’re required to keep you comfortable. While you know the team at Nisair Air Conditioning will forever 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 money if it’s not. We’ve collected this checklist of things to try before you give us a call.

  1. 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.
    • Is the thermostat switched to heat? If yes, increase the temperature by five degrees to check if it turns on.
    • If everything looks right, inspect your heat pump switch (if it has one) and check 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?
    • Check your air filters inside your air handler to confirm they’re not blocking things up.
    • Are your room heating registers open and unobstructed?

If you’ve moved through this checklist and you still need a heat pump repair, call Nisair Air Conditioning at 772-318-4252 or arrange an appointment up online and we’ll return your home back to the warm and cozy place you expect this time of year.
