What is Emergency Heat?

Many homeowners are unsure when to use emergency heat, but it’s simple: emergency heat is meant for just that, emergencies.
While some people believe that is a setting for extra-cold days when they need some added warmth, they’ll be sad when they get their heating bill (and they won’t be any warmer.) As mentioned before, when temperatures dip too low, your home’s heating system will automatically activate your backup heating system to work with your primary system.

So when should you turn on your EM heat? The only time that you should activate emergency heating is if your heat pump is broken. Also, you should only use it temporarily until you can get your heating system fixed.

If you notice that your heating system is not keeping your home warm or that the heat pump has been damaged, you may need to get a repair, and you can turn on your EM heat. Or, if your primary heat pump is frozen and will not defrost despite your heater being on, you can activate your emergency heat as you wait for a qualified service technician to take a look at it. Call Brown’s Arctic Air 352-728-4990 and we’ll be glad to come take a look at it for you.
