Although a heater breaking down in the middle of a Florida winter isn’t as deadly serious as it breaking down in the middle of a Wisconsin winter, it isn’t something you want to happen on the coldest day of the year no matter where you live. You’ll want to find a way to get it back working as soon as you can. We’ll show you the steps to take to first see if the heating system breakdown is a simple malfunction you can fix, and then what you should do if steps these fail.

  1. Check the thermostat: Since your thermostat tells your heating system when to turn on, a malfunctioning thermostat can be a big problem. Make sure you thermostat is set to the right temperature, that is the reading the temperature of your home correctly, and that it has power.
  2. Check the circuit breakers: If you have an electric heater (or a natural gas heater with an electric ignition), look to see if any of the circuit breakers have been tripped. Sometimes a sudden power surge can cause this, and you only need to reset the circuit breakers to restore power.
  3. Contact professional repair technicians: Although you may next feel tempted to go to the cabinet of your furnace or heat pump and try to work through the issue on your own, don’t give in to this impulse. Without training and advanced tools, you could only hope to stumble on the right repair accidentally—and the consequences of causing damage to the heater and to yourself are too high for you to risk it. Please call up a trusted local HVAC company and schedule a repair.
