Port St. Lucie How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair | Custom Air Systems Inc

When it’s a little more frigid in Port St. Lucie you rely on your heat pump to keep you warm. If it’s been some time since your system had maintenance, you might have a heat pump repair visit coming up. Annual maintenance service from professionals can keep your system working in peak performance and diagnose possible problem areas before they completely fall apart. Between service visits, make sure to look for cues that indicate repair is necessary. Here are some of the most common symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be running the way it used to. Is it running long enough? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem faint? These symptoms could indicate a small problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.

2. Your heat pump is stuck in heating mode or cooling mode. When it’s warm outside, your heat pump lowers the temperature in your home by passing refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s chilly out, heat pumps reverse the process and moves refrigerant to the outside of the evaporator coil. If you can’t get your system to convert modes, it may be time to contact a professional to find out why.

3. Your heat pump isn’t cycling how it regularly does. Your heat pump could be overheating if it is cycling on and off too frequently. This might point to a simple problem. Your thermostat could need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be changed. It may also indicate a breakdown in your thermostat or blower.

4. Your home is not being heated or cooled uniformly. Are your registers all open and clear? If they are and the problem persists, call an expert to see why your system is breaking down or out of balance.

5. Your heat pump is making a lot of noise. If your heat pump starts running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
