Does EM on Your South Georgia Thermostat Stand for Emergency Heat?

Published on: February 29, 2012

If you see the letters EM flashing on the thermostat in your South Georgia home or office, it indicates that your heater is running on its emergency heat reserve. If this is the case, you need to contact a Carrier® Authorized Factory Dealer who will offer professional air conditioning and heating services in South Georgia to troubleshoot and fix the problem. However, there are a few simple things you can do on your own before calling a South Georgia air conditioning and heating technician,

Try shutting off your thermostat and then turning it on again about 30 seconds later. This may cause the system to go out of emergency heat mode temporarily. Another thing you can do is count the number of times the EM light flashes. It should be anywhere between two and nine times. If you refer to the owner’s manual that came with your thermostat, it should tell you what the number of blinks mean.

You may need to take advantage of the available 24-hour emergency service a Carrier® Factory Authorized Dealer can provide if your heater will not come back on and you are without heat.

In the event that your heater has major issues that cannot be repaired, utilize a South Georgia Carrier® Factory Authorized Dealer who can assist you with your air conditioning and heating needs.
