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

When it’s cold in Saint Petersburg you rely on your heat pump to keep you comfortable. If it’s been too long since your system had maintenance, you might have a heat pump repair visit coming up. Once a year maintenance service from professionals can keep your system working efficiently and identify likely problem areas before they get worse. Between service visits, make sure to keep an eye out for signs that indicate repair is required. Here are some of the most common symptoms:

1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating correctly. Is it running enough? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem not as strong? 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 cools your home by passing 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 convert modes, it may be time to contact an expert to find out why.

3. Your heat pump isn’t cycling normally. Your heat pump could be overheating if it is cycling on and off too frequently. This might signal 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 uniformly. Are your registers all open and unobstructed? If they are and the problem persists, contact a professional 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 begin running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
