What To Do When the Heat Goes Out

Call it Murphy’s Law, or maybe just a little unluckiness, but we sometimes see heat pump troubles in Englewood during the cooler months, when they’re required to keep you comfortable. While you know the team at TemperaturePro® will always be there ASAP when you need us for a heat pump repair, there are some things you can do to ensure a repair is needed and save yourself some money 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 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.
    • Check your thermostat to make sure it’s on, set to the appropriate temperature and isn’t switched to cool.
    • Then try replacing the battery, if it has one.
    • If everything looks accurate, check your furnace switch (check your manual if you’re not sure where it is) and check your fuses and circuit breaker.
    • Make sure your gas is on.
  2. If the furnace still hasn’t turned on, go back to your thermostat.
    • If it’s a programmable model, make sure it’s revealing the accurate time. If it thinks it’s morning when it’s in fact night, it may not kick your heat on because it doesn’t know you’re home.
  3. Is an impasse causing your furnace to breakdown?
    • Check your air filters to make sure they’re not jamming things up.
    • Do you have any congested ducts, vents or cool air openings?
    • Are all supply registers exposed?
    • Is your exhaust flue unobstructed?

If you’ve moved through this checklist and you’re still lacking heat, call TemperaturePro® at 720-446-5100 or set up an appointment online and we’ll get your home back to the warm and cozy place it should be.
