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 Marshall during the winter time, when they’re needed the most to keep you warm. While you know the team at All Elements Heating & Air LLC will constantly be there ASAP when you require us for a heat pump repair, there are some things you can do to ensure a repair is necessary and save yourself some cash if it’s not. We’ve collected this checklist of things to try before you give us a call.

  1. It may sound silly, but make sure everything is turned “on”. We’ve been to numerous calls only to discover the thermostat or the heat pump itself is set to off.
    • Look at your thermostat to guarantee it’s on, set to the appropriate temperature and isn’t set to cool.
    • Then try swapping out 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.
    • Double check that your gas is on.
  2. If the furnace still hasn’t turned on, go back to your thermostat.
    • If it’s a programmable model, confirm that it’s revealing the proper time. If it thinks it’s morning when it’s actually night, it may not switch your heat on because it doesn’t understand that you’re home.
  3. Is an impasse causing your furnace to not work?
    • Examine your air filters to ensure they’re not clogging things up.
    • Do you have any congested ducts, vents or cool air intakes?
    • Are all supply registers exposed?
    • Is your exhaust flue clear?

If you’ve worked through this checklist and you’re still deprived of heat, call All Elements Heating & Air LLC at 903-702-3941 or arrange an appointment online and we’ll get your home back to the warm and cozy place it should be.
