What to Do During a Heating or Cooling Emergency

With Ohio’s extreme temperatures, it’s essential for a homeowner to keep their heating and cooling systems in top shape. Nevertheless, on a long enough timeline, if not replaced in a timely manner, these systems eventually run into problems. When this happens, knowing what to do is essential as well. Below, we outline four steps you should take when a furnace or air conditioning emergency happens in your home.

Here are 4 Tips During an HVAC Emergency:

  • 1. Check Your Thermostat

    Modern thermostats have a variety of settings, features and modes. Sometimes, this can present complications. If you’re having a furnace or air conditioner problem, the first step is to see if the thermostat is properly set. Make sure that your thermostat is set to the right function (heating or cooling) and that the temperature is high or low enough to activate the HVAC system. Make sure it has power or whether you might need to replace the battery.

  • 2. Check Your Breakers

    Even a lot of gas and oil-fueled furnaces use electricity to operate. During an HVAC emergency, checking the circuit breaker panel is essential. If a breaker flipped, switch it back to the “ON” position. It’s also possible that there is a furnace circuit breaker on the heating/cooling unit itself, so make sure to look there also to see if this is applicable. Keep in mind some newer residential HVAC systems come with a safety feature that shuts down the system when there’s excessive pressure or heat. If you aren’t replacing or cleaning your air filters regularly and your HVAC system shuts down, this might be why.

  • 3. Check Your Air Filter

    Your furnace or air conditioning problem could be a result of excessively dirty or clogged air filters. If you have a clogged air filter, the air can get trapped, making the HVAC system less effective in maintaining desired temperature levels in the home. This is expensive and hard on the equipment. Refer to your equipment’s manual to learn how to locate and remove the air filter for cleanup or replacement or other information about the unit.

  • 4. Check Your Gas Valve

    In case the gas valve is turned off, trace the gas line from the unit back to the meter. You should see a handle that’s perpendicular to the gas pipe. Turn this handle to the parallel position to turn on your gas. If your home has an older furnace or boiler model, check to make sure it has a pilot light and if it’s actually lit and the flame is solid, steady and blue. A yellow flame indicates carbon monoxide.

Troubleshooting a Furnace Not Heating

If your home heating system isn’t working as it should, or not working at all, we at Blacklick Heating & Cooling present the following Furnace Troubleshooting Tips:

Start by making sure the thermostat is working properly:

  1. Set the temperature a few degrees higher than the current room temperature.
  2. Check the device's power source and batteries to ensure the thermostat has power.
  3. Make sure the thermostat is in heat mode.

The furnace may not be heating because the motor has been overloaded, requiring reset.

  • Use the reset button, located on the side or front of the furnace.

If the furnace doesn’t have power, it will not turn on, preventing heating.

  1. Check the furnace’s power source at the breaker or fuse box.
  2. Change fuses or reset breakers if needed.
  3. Check the on/off switch near the furnace or air handler to make sure it is set to on.

If the furnace does not have fuel, it can’t produce the heat you need.

  • If you have a propane or oil furnace, make sure you have fuel in the tank available for heating
  • Make sure the gas supply valve to the furnace is on.

Troubleshooting an Air Conditioner

The home cooling consultants at Blacklick Heating & Cooling wish you the coolest, safest summer possible. Below, our team of NATE-certified AC pros list some of the most common types of problems a homeowner might encounter with an A/C during the summer months. If you encounter any of these common A/C issues, the following DIY AC troubleshooting and repair techniques are worth checking out:

My Air Conditioner Won’t Turn On:

  • Potential Causes: If you can’t get your unit to turn on, it could be from a blown circuit breaker or fuse. An internal switch could be off, or your thermostat could be improperly set or faulty.
  • Solutions:
    • Make sure it’s getting power from the electrical panel.
    • Reset the circuit break or replace the fuse.
    • Check your thermostat settings to make sure it’s set on “cool” and not set to “off” or “heat.”
    • Check for excessive water in your condensate overflow tray. There may be a sensor on your tray that turns the unit off when water pools up.
    • Check that all switches in and around the air conditioner are set to the “on” position, including the external safety switch that’s typically located near the condensing unit.
    • Check to make sure the blower door on the air handler is securely closed.

My Air Conditioner is On But it Won’t Cool:


  • Potential Causes: If your central AC is running but it isn’t providing sufficiently cool air, something could be blocking airflow in your system somewhere. Areas to consider include air filters, registers and compressors. Moreover, low refrigerant levels could also be the culprit. Without the adequate refrigerant, heat and humidity cannot be removed from the air efficiently.
  • Solutions:
    • Check the thermostat to make sure it’s working properly.
    • Take a look at the condenser to see if it’s dirty or blocked. If so, clean it and remove the blockage. The condenser can become blocked by tall weeds, grass, or other airborne debris.
    • Clean and/or change your filter (We recommend once a quarter.)
    • See if any ice has formed on the coils. If so, turn the fan on to melt it.
    • Check and/or clean the outdoor compressor. You could have a faulty compressor or an inadequate amount of refrigerant in the system, which would require a professional to fix.

Troubleshooting a Heat Pump

Is your heat pump giving you problems? By troubleshooting your heat pump, you should be able to narrow down your unit’s problems and facilitate a faster heat pump repair when an HVAC technician comes to your home to fix it. Heat pump technology is usually fairly straightforward. And, heat pumps are reliable systems as far as HVAC equipment goes.

In general, most heat pump malfunctions are related to one of three areas: the defrost, the thermostat, or airflow problems. Repairing this equipment typically necessitates the expertise of a NATE-certified technician. In any case, pinpointing or clarifying the nature of the problem with some simple heat pump troubleshooting measures will help you explain the problem to the technician and better understand the repairs being proposed.

  • Check Your Breaker

    If your heat pump fails to activate and the fan doesn’t run, check to see if you have tripped the breaker controlling the system’s air handler. If a breaker has been tripped, the problem could be a faulty electrical connection, a shorted controller board or a seized blower motor. If not the breaker, it could be a stuck fan relay, a defective thermostat or low voltage wiring connections.

  • Only Cold Air:

    If the fan is running but only cold air is coming out, set the thermostat at least 5 degrees or more than the room temperature to activate the backup heating elements. If you feel warm air after that, the problem is originating in the outdoor condenser/coil. If you still don’t feel any heat, the air handler might be at fault or it could be a defective thermostat.

  • Check Your Thermostat

    We always begin with the thermostat. You need to make sure it’s in heating mode and set to no more than 4 degrees above the current temperature of the room. As long as the temperature outside is more than 35 degrees, this should make the heat pump kick on and not the backup heating elements. Then, you turn on the fan switch.

  • Check Airflow Obstruction

    Problems at the outdoor unit could potentially include obstructions to coil airflow like grass clippings or leaves. If there’s ice formation on the outdoor coil, the control module may be defective or it could be related to the defroster timer. If the fan or the outdoor compressor isn’t operational, a seized motor, wiring issue, or compressor run capacitor might be the cause of the problem. If the outdoor fan runs but the unit still doesn’t heat, the heat pump's refrigerant might be low.
