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 issues in Bloomington during the cooler months, when they’re necessary to keep you warm. While you know the team at All Seasons Heating & A/C Co will forever be there ASAP when you require us for a heat pump repair, there are some things you can do to double check a repair is important and save yourself some expenses if it’s not. We’ve gathered this checklist of things to test before you give us a call.

  1. It may sound ridiculous, but make sure everything is set to “on”. We’ve been to numerous calls only to find the thermostat or the heat pump itself is set to off.
    • Check your thermostat to guarantee it’s on, fixed to the proper temperature and isn’t switched to cool.
    • Then try changing the battery, if it has one.
    • If everything looks accurate, check your furnace switch (check your manual if you’re hesitant about where it is) and check your fuses and circuit breaker.
    • Confirm that your gas is on.
  2. If the furnace still hasn’t turned on, return 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 turn your heat on because it doesn’t understand that you’re home.
  3. Is an impasse causing your furnace to fail?
    • Inspect your air filters to ensure they’re not blocking things up.
    • Do you have any blocked ducts, vents or cool air entries?
    • Are all supply registers accessible?
    • Is your exhaust flue unobstructed?

If you’ve gone through this checklist and you’re still lacking heat, call All Seasons Heating & A/C Co at 812-332-9100 or arrange an appointment online and we’ll get your home back to the welcoming and cozy place it should be.
