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

In Murrieta you rely on your heat pump to keep you comfy throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a heat pump service visit in the near future. Ensuring you schedule routine maintenance service will help keep your heat pump running properly and pinpoint any trouble that may need attention before they get worse. But you can scan for problems too. We’ve collected some signs for you to look for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in a pro, like Cool Air Solutions, if you notice any of these indicators:

  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 shifting refrigerant through the indoor evaporator coil. When it’s time to heat your home, it reverses the procedure and moves refrigerant to the external evaporator coil. If your heat pump is stuck in one mode, it may be time call in an expert to examine why.
  2. Your heat pump is not evenly heating or cooling your home. Check that your registers are all ready and accessible. If the issue persists, call in a professional to see why your system is breaking down or out of stability.
  3. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem feeble? Symptoms related to your blower could indicate a slight 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 running on and off too frequently, it may be overheating. This could be a straightforward solution, like swapping a obstructed filter or recalibrating your thermostat. It could also imply a glitch in your thermostat or your blower.
  5. Your heat pump is loud. If your heat pump starts operating at top volume or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be trouble.
