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

In Pinellas County you rely on your heat pump to keep you warm throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a heat pump fix-up visit sooner rather than later. Ensuring you schedule routine maintenance service will help keep your heat pump running efficiently and identify any trouble that may need attention before they get worse. But you can look for issues too. We’ve compiled some symptoms for you to scan for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a pro, like Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc, if you notice any of these symptoms:

  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 running refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s time to heat your home, it backs up the route and shifts refrigerant to the outside 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. Ensure that your registers are all open and unobstructed. If the trouble persists, call in an expert to learn why your system is breaking down or out of stability.
  3. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it operating all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem weak? Symptoms related to your blower could indicate 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 simple answer, like changing a blocked filter or recalibrating your thermostat. It could also imply a malfunction 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 a problem.
