Can you help me troubleshoot my heat pump that was struck by lightning and I have no ac?

My heat pump was struck by lightning and now my ac does not work.

Due to lightning heat pump was struck and ac' s not working. This may be because fuse may be gone due to thunder. The light reflects the electricity in such case the current goes.

The first thing I would do was unplug your heat pump and reset the circuit breaker that it was on.

This would be impossible to troubleshoot without a direct examination of the heat pump. Anyone who claims to be able to do so is guessing at the reason.

Your ciruit breaker could have a short. The lightning overloaded the fuse. The fuse for the AC could have overloaded as well. Try replacing both fuses.

That happened to my unit. I opened the breaker panel on the side of the unit, switched off each switch. If I cut off a switch and the unit stopped, I then switched that one back ON and threw the other 2 to the OFF. Then, call your service person.

In most lightning strike cases teh electronic control board gets fried. Contact the manufacturer and get a replacement control board. You will need the system's model and serial number.
