What To Do When the Heat Goes Out

Repair

Call it Murphy’s Law, or maybe just a little unluckiness, but we sometimes see heat pump issues in Tomball during the winter time, when they’re needed the most to keep you comfortable. While you know the team at Premium Air Services LLC will forever be there ASAP when you need us for a heat pump repair, there are some things you can do to confirm that a repair is needed and save yourself some cash if it’s not. We’ve gathered 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 several calls only to realize the thermostat or the heat pump itself is turned off.
    • Look at your thermostat to ensure it’s on, set to the proper temperature and isn’t fixed to cool.
    • Then try replacing the battery, if it has one.
    • If everything looks right, check your furnace switch (check your manual if you’re hesitant about where it is) and inspect your fuses and circuit breaker.
    • Confirm that your gas is on.
  2. If the furnace still hasn’t kicked on, go back to your thermostat.
    • If it’s a programmable model, confirm that it’s revealing the correct time. If it thinks it’s morning when it’s actually night, it may not kick your heat on because it doesn’t know you’re home.
  3. Is an impasse causing your furnace to fail?
    • Check your air filters to make sure they’re not jamming things up.
    • Do you have any blocked ducts, vents or cool air openings?
    • Are all supply registers open?
    • Is your exhaust flue clear?

If you’ve worked through this checklist and you’re still lacking heat, call Premium Air Services LLC at 713-688-8784 or arrange an appointment online and we’ll get your home back to the welcoming and cozy place it should be.
