The No Heat Checklist
Simple errors have the power to stand in the way of comfort at home. When you have no heat, your first thought is typically to call for heating repair, but there are many troubleshooting steps you are able to perform to restore heat on your own.
We recommend our Louisville homeowners run through the No Heat Checklist before they call. Sometimes, it’s just a minor issue that leaves you without heat. These issues are easily resolved, and troubleshooting them yourself saves you the expense and the wait of a service call. Try the No Heat Checklist first, and if you still have no heat, then give us a call.
When your home has no heat, the place to start troubleshooting is at your thermostat. The brains of the operation, your thermostat communicates with your heating system and tells it your home is ready for a heating cycle. A no heat issue isn’t always caused by your heating equipment – thermostat malfunctions and settings errors are common causes.
