I am very fortunate to have a neighbor who is in the HVAC business. Woke up this morning to no heat pump sound. Even the emergency strips don't seem to be working. Guess they wouldn't if the heat pump isn't. When I realized that it didn't go on even when I turned up the thermostat I got in touch with him. He'll be here shortly. I hate to disturb him on a Saturday but it's in the 30's outside. Also the downstairs thermostat doesn't seem to be working either. Happily I have fireplaces and a wood stove in the basement if worse comes to worst.
I'll make sure to have hot coffee available for him.
Y'all have a good day.
