West Palm Beach How to Know When Its Time for a Heat Pump Repair | Summit Air Conditioning Inc

When it’s chilly in West Palm Beach you rely on your heat pump to keep you warm. If it’s been too long since your system had maintenance, you might have a heat pump repair coming soon. Annual maintenance service from professionals can keep your system working properly and find potential problem areas before they deteriorate. Between service visits, make sure to look for signs that indicate repair is required. Here are some of the most familiar symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be working properly. Is it running long enough? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem not as strong? These symptoms could indicate a minor problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.

2. Your heat pump can’t get out of heating mode or cooling mode. When when you need to beat the heat outside, your heat pump cools your home by moving refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s cold out, heat pumps shift the process and carries 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 again and again. This might point to a simple problem. Your thermostat might need to be recalibrated or a clogged filter needs to be changed. It may also indicate a malfunction in your thermostat or blower.

4. Your home is not being heated or cooled uniformly. Are your registers all open and unhampered? If they are and the problem continues, contact a professional to see why your system is failing or out of balance.

5. Your heat pump is making a lot of noise. If your heat pump is suddenly running loudly or making noises you’ve never heard before, there could be something wrong.
