We have all called tech support only for them to ask us if we have rebooted our computer. Here is your guide to “Tier 1 HVAC support.”
2. Check your fuse box.
There should be a fuse for both your indoor air handler and outdoor heat pump. If either fuse has been tripped, turn them both to the off position then back on. If the breaker trips again you will either need an electrician or a professional HVAC technician.
3. Look for a light switch.
While it is not common, some companies will install a light switch in your utility room that functions as a disconnect. It is possible for these switches to be turned off in error.
4. Check your air handler.
Most heat pumps in this area have emergency backup heat. There is often a breaker for this backup heat at your air handler. If they are visible and not on, turn them off then back on. If you do not observe any breakers, we do not recommend that you open your unit due to the serious risk of electrical shock and instead contact us.
Still not working? If you have done all of the above and your system either will not turn on or is not working, it is time to call our professionals. We offer a free second opinion on major repairs. If another licensed HVAC professional has told you that your indoor evaporator coil, outdoor condenser coil, or your compressor needs to be replaced, we will send one of our trained technicians out at no charge for a free second opinion and free estimate for repair. We also offer financing options for repairs that are above $500, subject to approved credit.Schedule Heating Repairs
