What To Do When the Heat Goes Out

Call it Murphy’s Law, or maybe just a little misfortune, but we sometimes see heat pump troubles in Vancouver during the colder seasons, when they’re needed the most to keep you toasty. While you know the team at Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC will forever 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 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 discover the thermostat or the heat pump itself is set to off.
    • Check your thermostat to guarantee it’s on, switched to the proper temperature and isn’t fixed 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 test your fuses and circuit breaker.
    • Double check 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, make certain that it’s revealing the accurate 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 a blockage causing your furnace to not work?
    • Examine your air filters to make sure they’re not clogging things up.
    • Do you have any blocked ducts, vents or cool air intakes?
    • Are all supply registers exposed?
    • Is your exhaust flue unobstructed?

If you’ve moved through this checklist and you’re still lacking heat, call Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC at 360-571-5100 or schedule an appointment online and we’ll get your home back to the welcoming and cozy place it should be.
