The cold winter weather can put an extra strain on your home heating system. If your system breaks down or malfunctions, Emergency Heating services may be needed to keep your family warm.
If your heat pump is set to emergency, it will automatically switch to backup heating during very cold temperatures. However, if your heat pump is constantly switching to emergency mode, that means something is wrong and you should call an HVAC repair service immediately.
Emergency heat is not a substitute for regular furnace maintenance. If you want to avoid expensive repairs, you need to schedule routine furnace maintenance with a trusted and reliable company. Contact us to learn more about our preventative maintenance plans.
Signs that it’s time to call for emergency repairs include:
Seeing a pool of water or water leaking from your heating system can be signs that you need emergency repair. This indicates that there is a problem with your reversing valve or low refrigerant levels. These issues can cause a complete system failure if not repaired quickly.
If you have a heat pump or forced air gas furnace, an emergency repair grant can help keep your family warm and comfortable this winter. The program is available to homeowners whose household income is less than 200% of the federal poverty level. The grant provides financial assistance for heating repair, replacement or installation. The grant program is administered by local community action agencies. Applications are accepted Nov 1 through April 29 of each year.
