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

In West Palm Beach you depend on your heat pump to keep you warm throughout the chilly time of year. 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 any day. Guaranteeing that you schedule annual maintenance service will help keep your heat pump operating properly and identify any trouble that may need fixing before they get worse. But you can scan for problems too. We’ve assembled some symptoms for you to scan for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a pro, like Summit Air Conditioning Inc, if you see 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 interior evaporator coil. When it’s time to heat your home, it backs up 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 a technician to examine why.
  2. Your heat pump is not evenly heating or cooling your home. Check that your registers are all open and unobstructed. If the trouble keeps up, call in a professional to learn 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 working all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem tired? Signs related to your blower could suggest a bit of a 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 straightforward fix, like swapping 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 operating noisily or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be trouble.
