Saint Petersburg How to Know When It's Time for a Heat Pump Repair | Hale's Air Conditioning Services Inc

February 16, 2018
When it’s chilly in Saint Petersburg you depend on your heat pump to keep you cozy. If it’s been too long since your system had maintenance, you might have a heat pump repair in your future. Yearly maintenance service from experts can keep your system operating in peak performance and identify potential problem areas before they get worse. Between service visits, make sure to look for cues that indicate repair is necessary. Here are some of the most familiar symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be working properly. Is it running enough? Is it running all the time? Does the air flow seem weak? These symptoms could hint at 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 it’s warm outside, your heat pump lowers the temperature in your home by carrying refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When winter arrives, heat pumps reverse the process and carries refrigerant to the outside of the evaporator coil. If you can’t get your system to change modes, it may be time to contact a pro 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 indicate a simple problem. Your thermostat could 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 consistently. Are your registers all open and clear? If they are and the problem persists, call an expert 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’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
