How to Know When It’s Time for a Heat Pump Repair

In Stuart you depend on your heat pump to keep you comfortable throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a regular maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a heat pump fix-up visit in the near future. Guaranteeing that you schedule annual maintenance service will help keep your heat pump operating efficiently and detect any problems that may need attention before they get worse. But you can search for trouble too. We’ve assembled some indicators for you to scan for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a pro, like Nisair Air Conditioning, if you notice any of these symptoms:

  1. Your heat pump is stuck in either heating mode or cooling mode. Your heat pump is able to cool your house when it’s warm by moving refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s time to heat your home, it backs up the route and moves refrigerant to the outdoor evaporator coil. If your heat pump is set in one mode, it may be time call in an expert to inspect why.
  2. Your heat pump is not evenly heating or cooling your home. Check that your registers are all ready and unrestricted. If the problem persists, call in a pro to see why your system is breaking down or out of equilibrium.
  3. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem feeble? Symptoms related to your blower could suggest a bit of a problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.
  4. Your heat pump isn’t cycling as it normally does. If your heat pump is cycling on and off too often, it may be overheating. This could be a easy fix, like changing a obstructed filter or recalibrating your thermostat. It could also imply a fault in your thermostat or your blower.
  5. Your heat pump is loud. If your heat pump starts running loudly or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
