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

In Port Saint Lucie you depend on your heat pump to keep you comfy throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a routine maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a heat pump fix-up visit in the near future. Confirming that you schedule regular maintenance service will help keep your heat pump functioning properly and detect any issues that may need attention before they get worse. But you can search for trouble too. We’ve assembled some signs for you to search for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in an expert, like Custom Air Systems Inc, if you notice any of these signs:

  1. Your heat pump is stuck in either heating mode or cooling mode. Your heat pump is capable of cooling your house when it’s warm by shifting refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s time to heat your home, it reverses the route and moves refrigerant to the external evaporator coil. If your heat pump is set in one mode, it may be time call in an expert to examine why.
  2. Your heat pump is not evenly heating or cooling your home. Ensure that your registers are all open and accessible. If the trouble continues, call in an expert to see why your system is malfunctioning or out of stability.
  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? Indications related to your blower could signify a slight problem with your air filter or the internal blower.
  4. Your heat pump isn’t cycling as it normally does. If your heat pump is switching on and off too regularly, it may be overheating. This could be a simple answer, like exchanging a obstructed filter or recalibrating your thermostat. It could also indicate a glitch in your thermostat or your blower.
  5. Your heat pump is loud. If your heat pump starts working at top volume or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
