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 Waxahachie during the cooler months, when they’re needed the most to keep you warm. While you know the team at C&C Refrigeration Inc. will forever be there ASAP when you ask for us for a heat pump repair, there are some things you can do to ensure a repair is important and save yourself some money 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 discover the thermostat or the heat pump itself is switched off.
    • Inspect your thermostat to make sure it’s on, fixed to the correct temperature and isn’t switched to cool.
    • Then try changing the battery, if it has one.
    • If everything looks correct, check your furnace switch (check your manual if you’re not sure where it is) and inspect your fuses and circuit breaker.
    • Double check that your gas is on.
  2. If the furnace still hasn’t switched on, return to your thermostat.
    • If it’s a programmable model, make certain that it’s revealing the accurate time. If it thinks it’s morning when it’s actually night, it may not switch your heat on because it doesn’t think you’re home.
  3. Is an impasse causing your furnace to not work?
    • Inspect your air filters to ensure they’re not blocking things up.
    • Do you have any blocked ducts, vents or cool air intakes?
    • Are all supply registers accessible?
    • Is your exhaust flue clear?

If you’ve worked through this checklist and you’re still lacking heat, call C&C Refrigeration Inc. at 972-938-0033 or set up an appointment online and we’ll get your home back to the welcoming and cozy place it should be.
